May Day for Relay Saturday, many events planned

Even the Northern Tier is getting in on the act, with another car wash to be held at PowerTex in the village of Rouses Point from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. There a bake sale and yard sale will also be held.

"We're going from one end of the county to the other," Sterling laughed.

The signature event that day, however, will be Bid for the Cure, said Sterling. The Westside Ballroom on New York Road will host a silent and live auction paired with light hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. The evening will also include a brief overview of the upcoming main Relay for Life event and even include entertainment by The Boobie Sisters, a well-known comedy and music group composed of local breast cancer survivors.

"It's going to be a great event," said Sterling.

"And, it'll be a great place to shop early for a Mother's Day gift - and for Father's Day, too," said Berry.

Bid for the Cure will start with the silent auction at 5 p.m., followed by the live auction at 6 p.m., featuring local politicians assisting the auctioneer.

The cost for admission for Bid for the Cure will be $20 in advance or $25 at the door.
