When: Friday, April 3rd, 2015

Where: Maceli's - 1031 New Hampshire St - Lawrence

Why: To Raise $$$ for The American Cancer Society

We all have an old prom dress, bridesmaid's dress or something else fabulous in our closet just begging to be pulled out, put on and danced in! Even if you don't have an old dress you'd like to wear, we'd love to see you at the Gala in anything that makes you feel fabulous!

Join us for what we hope will become an annual Ladies Only event, bringing ladies from all over the area together to have a blast dancing the night away with their best friends, snapping photos in our photo booth and eating desserts, all while raising money for The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of Douglas County, Kansas!!!

Guests 21 and over only, please!

Tickets are required and are available via Eventbrite for a significantly discounted rate or at the door for $40. Tickets are $25 through February 28th and $35 between March 1st and April 2nd.

The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Douglas County has the distinct honor of being the home event for the #1 individual fundraiser in Kansas and in the High Plains Region (Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Hawaii & Guam) again in 2014. Bob Siligipni walked door-to-door in Lawrence in 2014, raising over $48,000 for the American Cancer Society. Since Bob began volunteering for Relay For Life, he has raised over $300,000 for the American Cancer Society!

Bob will be honored during a special presentation at the Team Captain Meeting on Tuesday, February 24th, 2015 at 6pm in the Lawrence Public Library Auditorium.

The 2015 Relay For Life of Douglas County will be held on Friday, June 12th, 2015 at the Free State High School track.

Relay Idol Competition at Relay For Life of Douglas County

Got talent? Prove it!

Introducing Relay Idol to Relay For Life of Douglas County

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Free State High School Track Lawrence, KS

Win 2 Thursday tickets AND 4 Sunday tickets to Country Stampede

Auditions - 6:00 to 7:00 PM Finalist Sing-Off - 8:00 PM Winner Announced - 9:00 PM

How it works: Auditions will be held at the Relay For Life event on Friday, June 7th on the Southeast Deck of the Free State High School Stadium Concession Stand/Locker Rooms. Each contestant will have 2 minutes to show the local celebrity judges what they’ve got. All performances must be a capella (no accompaniment, no music, etc.). Registration is not required, but auditions will begin at 6:00PM and end sharply at 7:00PM in order to give judges enough time to pick the top 3 performers.

Judges will select the top 3 finalists to sing/perform in front of the general audience at 8:00PM (again, singing a capella – no accompaniment, no music) on the Relay Stage on the west side of the track at mid-field. When all 3 finalists have completed their performance, they will begin seeking donations from around the stadium. Finalists will have until 8:45PM to collect donations from their fans. The finalist with the most donations collected at 8:45PM will be crowned “Relay Idol” at approximately 9:00PM.

All monies collected will be donated to Relay For Life. If the finalist is a registered participant at Relay For Life, the money will count toward their individual total. If the finalist is not a registered participant at Relay For Life, the money will count toward the general fundraising total.
