The Relay Committee will hold a Relay For Life Rummage Sale on Saturday, July 31, from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. in Parking Lot 8 at College of the Canyons' Valencia campus.

Teams which participated in the May Relay will set up their own "shops," collecting their own merchandise for sale and providing their own volunteers to staff each "store."

Event chair Jen Minard hopes to draw at least 10 or more teams, who can boost their own team Relay results while contributing to the event's overall success. Donations and shoppers from the community are welcome.

Another post-Relay fundraiser has been scheduled at Santa Clarita Lanes on Saturday, Aug. 14 from 5 p.m to 8 p.m. The Bowl-A-Thon will offer three hours of bowling, shoe rental, two slices of pizza and soda for a $25-per-person entry fee.

The American Cancer Society will receive $10 for each participant, and those proceeds also can be counted toward Relay team income for 2010.

Information or registration is available at the SCV Relay Web site at, or by sending an e-mail query to The event is open to the community or to Relay teams whose members want to participate as a team. Deadline for registration is Saturday, July 24.

For the thousands of community members who attended the evening Luminaria Ceremony at this year's Relay, the committee has produced a DVD version of the ceremony, shot from different angles and complete with music.

Cost is $10, and the DVD can be ordered at the ACS Web site at and clicking on the link at the left side of the home page. Proceeds from the sale will help the American Cancer Society in its fight against cancer in its many forms.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. ACS works toward that goal by preventing cancer, savings lives from cancer and diminishing suffering from cancer by supporting research, education, advocacy and service.

The American Cancer Society's 2010 SCV Relay For Life has raised more than $478,000 to date, and a number of post-Relay fundraising events are scheduled to help the local event reach its $600,000 goal by the Aug. 31 deadline.

Planning is already underway for the 2011 SCV Relay For Life, which will be held May 21 and 22, 2011 at Central Park. Minard has agreed to chair the event for a second year, and committee meetings will begin with a casual open house to be scheduled sometime in August.

A "help wanted" list of open volunteer positions is expected to be posted to the SCV Relay Web site in July or August.

College of the Canyons is located at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Rd., Valencia 91355.

Santa Clarita Lanes is located at 21615 Soledad Canyon Rd., Saugus 91350.
