Ace of cakes to judge Relay Contest

Relay-For-LifeDuring one of the biggest celebrations the town’s ever seen, two Ace of Cakes stars will grace the Relay for Life of Pottstown this year. Cancer touches everyone, even those lucky enough never get it. On June 5th, the luminaries will burn through the night as survivors of all ages walk in a victory lap, representing the healing power of the human community and the importance of funding in finding a cure. Luminaries are literally little bags of light with the candles placed in white bags filled with sand and positioned around the track at Fort Totten.

Debbie Oister, Co Chairperson of the 2010 Relay for Life, said the Ace of Cakes stars will be judging the cake contests said “We have always had a cake contest, we’re reaching out to bakeries” , as this year there will be a contest for the best bakery and which will be chosen from a pool of local bakeries that have supported the local relay for Life in the past years . She also said that the bakers of cakes which win the contests at Relay for Life will get to have their photos taken with Geoff and Mary Alice. She added that the opportunity to have these television stars at the event is tremendous in terms of gaining more exposure for Relay. Because of Geoff and Mary Alice, Oister hopes in addition to hoping more people come out to experience and support the Relay for Life event the hope of more people to learn about and participate with the Cancer Prevention Study 3, a study that has historically contributed greatly to cancer research and education.

Oister said “Hopefully after people come and see Goof and Mary Alice, they will learn more about CPS3 and our Relay for Life” and people are invited to attend the local relay for Life. Anyone interested in participating must be a member of a Relay for Life team.”
