Town Square Welcomes Relay for Life

This evening, Biltmore Park Town Square will be bright with candlelight, camaraderie, memories, and community as it welcomes Relay for Life. From 6 p.m. to 7:30 a.m., walkers will circle Town Square Boulevard as a part of the fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society. Cancer survivors and those wishing to memorialize loved ones will contribute by placing luminaries along the route to guide strollers through the night, and all are welcome to come offer support, walk, donate, or simply visit with participants.

Over the past few weeks, Town Square's restaurants even joined in by donating part of their proceeds to the American Cancer Society, and visitors are sure to see many Biltmore Park regulars among tonight's teams. Teams for this evening's event have already raised close to $50,000 for this worthy cause, and they are looking forward to celebrating their fundraising efforts.

After the opening ceremony and Survivor's Lap, there will be live entertainment from local groups like the Altamont Theatre, The Business, Jazz the Ripper, and more. Games, music, movies, and other activities will entertain crowds throughout the remainder of the evening before they enjoy an early pancake breakfast at 5 a.m. on Saturday.

Earlier in the night, Biltmore Park Town Square's restaurants and retailers will also be open to help fuel walkers. Consider grabbing a cup of coffee or stocking up on activities and reading supplies at Barnes & Noble, enjoying a meal from Brixx Pizza or roux, or even sending visitors over to the movie theater to catch one of the latest blockbusters while you continue circling Town Square Boulevard. However you choose to participate, the evening is sure to be a fun-filled success. Happy relaying!
