This past weekend saw local activists rally against cancer, artists of all disciplines share their work, and adventurists take to their bikes for a magical tour of Magnolia Park merchants.
Have you noticed the purple ribbons adorning the trees of Downtown Burbank and City Hall awash in a nighttime purplish hue? This is all the work of local American Cancer Society activists who are ramping up for this year’s Relay for Life.
The team of Mychelle Aguilar, Heidi and Tom Darrah and Michelle Jacobovitz, under the leadership of Joan Patricia “JP” O’Connor and Kerry McAloon, took to the downtown streets last Saturday with yards of purple ribbon in tow to remind Burbankers that this year’s 24-hour Relay for Life will take place at Johnny Carson Park on May 14 and 15.
To kick off this month-long campaign against cancer, the organization will be staging a comedy fundraiser at Flappers Comedy Club this Tuesday that will showcase the comedic stylings of Peter Berman, Justin Worsham, Tony Baker, Samuel J. Comore, Sarah Taylor and Sean Tweedley. For further information on this and all the events leading up to the Relay for Life, call (818) 416-6215 or visit www.relayforlife.org/burbankca.
