Relay for Life

I have been actively involved in our local Relay for Life for the past 11 years.  Relay for Life is a 24 hour event that raises awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society.  The Pottstown Relay for Life has consistently been one of the top Relays in Pennsylvania and in the world!  This year we had some real excitement at the Relay.  Geoff and Mary Alice from the Ace of Cakes came to Relay to judge our cake contest!!!  What fun that was!

Here are some of the cakes that Relay participants made for the cake contest!  Aren't they awesome!?
Then the exciting news came......Ace of Cakes was using all of the footage that they shot that day for an upcoming episode!  So, Pottstown Relay for Life and the town will be featured!!!  How cool is that!?  Geoff is from our town, so they filmed all around the area in addition to the time that they spent at Relay!

Then Geoff and Mary Alice unveiled this cake.......they made it just for the Relay! It is made in the likeness of a luminaria bag.  Our Luminaria Ceremony is one of the most awe inspiring parts of the Relay!  When the sun goes down, the entire track and the visitors stands are filled with lit luminaria bags! It is truly amazing!  Anyway, here is the cake!  It lit up too!  I got to taste a piece of the cake on Sunday morning after the Closing Ceremonies! It was delicious!  I can't wait to see the show!  If you get a chance go to  and check out our awesome Relay!
