The Stow Munroe Falls Hudson Relay For Life is fast approaching on June 10 at Stow-Glen Retirement Village, and several fundraisers and events will be taking place to help reach the goal for the American Cancer Society.

The Gray Matters team and the SMFH Relay are offering raffle basket tickets for a Vitamix Deluxe Prize Package. This prize is actually two baskets one donated by good friends and one donated by the Vitamix store in Solon. Included in the baskets are: a Vitamix 6300 and recipe book, a tamper holder, 2 20 ounce cups, flip top cups, coffee cup, several cookbooks and last but not least, a gift certificate for a culinary class for two at the Vitamix store in Solon. Combined value of the baskets is approximately $800. Tickets are 1 for $5 or 5 for $20. Checks may be made out to the American Cancer Society. Contact Maria Martinez at for more information.

Team PTI will be holding its second Annual Car Wash at Stow-Glen Retirement Village on May 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Donations accepted for a great car wash (weather permitting).

The Galioto Family will hold their Annual Lemonade Stand on May 27 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Vira Road just off Kent Road (Route 59) in Stow. Hot dogs, chips and of course, lemonade will be served for a donation.

The Queen of Hearts drawing continues weekly at The Firehouse Pub on the Tallmadge Circle until a winner is drawn. Winners are drawn each Sunday at 6:30 p.m. and tickets may be purchased for $20 until 6 p.m. on the day of the drawing.

Gavin Scott Salon will once again be at Relay on June 10 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. to cut hair for those wishing to donate to Locks for Love. This charity provides wigs to those suffering from hair loss for various reasons.

Also during Relay, Tami Lewis from the American Cancer Society will speak about a couple of programs. She will speak about the Look Good Feel Better program, which offers tips on make-up, skin care, hair loss options and clothing suggestions at 11 a.m. Lewis will also speak about the Road to Recovery program, which pairs volunteers to provide rides to those in treatment at 2 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend to learn about where your donated money is put to work.
