….can you do to lend a hand in kicking cancer's ass? Help out the Center for Cancer Wellness, Candy's Place, by signing up to participate in its Rainbow Walk.
Now in its 16th year, the Rainbow Walk was created in memory of Candice Vincent-Mamary, a social worker who died after a seven-month battle with lung cancer. Her sister, Penny Cunningham, used the funds raised from the first Rainbow Walk to create Candy's Place in honor of Vincent-Mamary.
The walk will be held May 11 at Kirby Park and the cost is $25. For more information call 570.714.8800 or visit www.cancerwellnessnepa.org.
….can you get the chance to “Come on down!”?
On May 30 the F.M. Kirby Center (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre) will play host to “The Price is Right Live!”
The show is an interactive one that gives contestants, pulled right from the audience, the chance to have an authentic experience with the game show.
“This is the real thing,” said Will Beekman of the Kirby Center. “You get Plinko, Cliffhangers, and of course, the big wheel. Heck, you even get the models.”
A celebrity host will be announced soon.
Tickets go on sale March 28 at 10 a.m. and are available at the F.M. Kirby Center Box Office, by phone at 570.826.1100, online at www.kirbycenter.org and through all Ticketmaster outlets.
Tickets are $35.50, $45.50, $55.50 and $78.50 limited VIP.
….are so many Scrantonions dreading May? That's when the hit NBC show based in the Electric City, “The Office,” will finally come to an end.
The locals won't let it go quietly, of course, so WBRE Eyewitness News is organizing a mass lip dub video to give the show a proper send-off.
The first part of the process is to have local bands write a goodbye song and record it, and a winner will be chosen from the submissions. This song will be used as the basis for the lip dub video, which will be filmed May 5 in Scranton
Any bands wishing to submit songs can do so via e-mail by contacting email@example.com.
