Purple cow sundaes support Relay For Life
The ice cream stand at Mack's Apples will offer custom Purple Cow sundaes on Saturday, June 11, during a special "luminaria" event to raise money for the American Cancer Society and the Derry/Greater Londonderry Relay for Life. One hundred percent of proceeds from the sundaes will go to benefit The Relay For Life to be held next month at the Pinkerton Academy track in Derry.
Andy Mack Jr. is the honorary chairman this year for the 18-hour event that kicks off Friday, June 24, at 6 p.m.
Luminaria bags will be available to purchase and decorate. These bags are personalized to honor a loved one who is battling cancer, is a cancer survivor, or who lost their life due to the illness. During a special Luminaria Ceremony during the relay, candles are placed in the bags and lit as the lights all around the track are turned off at 9 p.m.
