The Clintons and Fireworks at Relay for Life this Friday!
If my last post regarding Relay for Life didn’t get you excited about having fun and curin’ cancer, I can guarantee this one will. We’re just a few days out from our Relay for Life event and the energy of what this event means and what you’ll experience by attending continues to compound. (As a reminder for those of you who haven’t already marked your calendars for this amazing event, it kicks off at 5:00 p.m. on July 13th at the Billings West High Track and runs to the morning hours of July 14th.)
So what gives? What makes this year’s event even better than those of year’s past? For starters, we’ve upped the ante in the entertainment department, y’all. Let me just cut to the chase: Ever heard of The Clintons? Yes? Then I’m confident I’ll see you there. No? Then you better get there if you know what’s good for ya, son! They’re rad. Trust. Not only are they Montana grown, but this Bozeman based band is notorious for pumping out some serious rock/country soundage that gets you off your feet and dancin’ on the ceiling, Lionel.
As in year’s past, we don’t charge people to come and take part in the Relay, but this band is worth their weight in gold, so if you’re willing and able, we’re accepting a (suggested) $5 donation as your “cover charge” to jam out to this awesome group. The Clintons will hit the stage at 8:00 p.m., take a brief pause between 10:00 and 11:00, and will be back on to finish off the night from 11:00 to midnight.
Did you think I was done? DONE? I’m just getting STARTED, kid. What makes any already awesome event even better? Yes, I agree, peanut butter does typically make any event better, but that’s not what I’m talking about here. We’re talking ENTERTAINMENT, remember? And last I heard peanut butter wasn’t making your dogs run for the basement and think WHAT IS GOING ON? ARE WE IN THE MIDDLE OF A WAR ZONE????
I’m talking about mixing a little flame with a little something called a WHOLE LOT OF AWESOME:
Big Boomer and EBMS are sponsoring Fireworks this year. And people, if Montanans know how to do one thing right, it’s mixing flames with fun. The glitter starts at 10:45 p.m., directly after the Luminaria Ceremony, so I hope you’ll be there right along beside me, mouth agape and head to the sky, relishing in the wonder of it all.
And by the wonder of it all, I’m of course referring to participating in an event that celebrates cancer survivors, remembers those who have lost the good fight to an unbelievably ugly disease, and fighting back to insure we create more birthdays by getting rid of cancer. That said, good tunes and sparkly fire make any already great event even more wondrous.
(And I’ll bring the peanut butter.)
See you there!
P.S. Not only is our event family friendly, but please remember we’re all about curing cancer, not causing it. No alcohol or smoking allowed. Thanks!
