Mt. Pleasant Relay for Life team plans shopping event
The American Cancer Society is determined to ultimately eliminate cancer as a major health problem.
While striving to reach this, the organization works daily to save more lives and help those living with cancer cope until a cure is discovered.
On Sunday, the Patti-O Rockers team from the Relay For Life of Mt. Pleasant will host its third annual “Spring Spectacular Shopping Event,” a vendor and craft show to benefit the American Cancer Society.
The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the St. Pius X Parish Social Hall, located at South Silver and Summit streets in the borough. It is free and open to the public.
The Patti-O Rockers team is composed of family and friends of the late Patti Oravetz and Rocky Waller, both Mt. Pleasant residents who lost their battles with cancer 12 and 13 years ago, respectively.
Oravetz and Waller were both employees of Southmoreland School District.
The team was formed in 2007 so that the family members of Oravetz and Waller could raise funds for local programs and services and research.
The following vendors have committed to take part in the show: Stephanie Geyer — Little Chickies Hair Clippies; Marilyn Costic — Mary Kay Cosmetics; Joyce Prutz — Cheesecake Anyone?; Katie Ronald — Tastefully Simple; Megan Bryson — Thirty-One Gifts; Don Heiple — Party Lite; Nicole Mowry — Celebrating Home; Sue Leeper — Pampered Chef; Jenny Piasecke — Roots Hair and Nail Salon; Tammy Heiple — Avon; Teresa Snyder — Initials, Inc.; Louise Cernuto — Mia Bella Candles; Jim and Rose Rausch — JR Specialties/Rada Cutlery; Heather Cole — Origami Owl; Wendi Forcina — Blessings Unlimited; Marcia Binda — Premier Designs; Marisa Springer — Wind and Willow; Tina Minoski — Ribbon - The Gift of Choice; Michelle Chishko — It Works!; Rita True — True-ly Delicious Chocolates; Julie Ritenour — Cookie Lee Jewelry; Renee Mohler — Stella and Dot Jewelry; Rae Speelman — Crafts by Rae Speelman; Carol Tullio — Handpoured Candles; Ashley Czekaj — Tutu Cute; Heidi Alcorn — Sabika Jewelry; Samantha Moyer — Tupperware; Sue Fullem — Susie's Knits; Patty Smith — Kid's Crafts; Susan Fierst — Meredith Lilly.
