Relay for Life announces event and kick-off dates

The 2014 Wilton Relay for Life kick-off event will be on Thursday, Feb. 6, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Westy’s, 65 Danbury Road.

There will be an informative slideshow about Wilton Relay for Life, a luminaria ceremony, snacks and refreshments at the kick-off.

Attendees will have the chance to win door prizes, purchase Relay for Life gear, and register for this year’s Wilton Relay that will take place Saturday, May 31 until Sunday, June 1.

“We are really happy that we were able to get this date in late May because for the first time that I can remember, this date will avoid the junior prom, the senior prom and the Wilton High School show. In addition, the end of May should bring warmer weather than we usually have for Relay,” said Sara Augenbraun, chair of this year’s event.

The team with the most money raised and the team with the most participants registered by the kick-off will get first pick of Relay for Life campsites.

The kick-off snow date is set for Sunday, Feb. 13.
