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.

The vendors will have cash and carry items and they will be taking orders, as well. Attendees will also have the chance to take part in a 50/50 raffle and a Chinese auction.

Refreshments will be offered, including homemade haluski, ham barbecue, hotdogs, snacks and drinks.

Information will be available about society's services and events.

The American Cancer Society will also be selling Daffodil Days products at the event, including daffodil bunches, mini potted daffodils, vases, collectible Boyd's Bears while supplies last.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
