Relay for Life American Cancer Society

Relay For Life Cy-Fair, presented by North Cypress Cancer Center, was held at Cy Woods High School. Jessica Brown of Premier Outlets 290 helped arrange the annual event, which far surpassed expectations with the number of teams and participants. The event raised more than $140,000 from pledges and a silent auction.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a unique fundraising event where survivors and current cancer patients, their families, businesses, civic organizations and the public form teams and take turns walking or running the track overnight in an effort to fight cancer. Teams camp out, eat and play games during the 12-hour affair.

As the evening grew dark, bags with candles illuminated the entire track in sadness and celebration; remembering those lost to cancer and honoring those who battled cancer and won. The runners were then entertained during the Mr. Relay contest, where men donned evening gowns and participated in a talent competition. “Pinky” was the winner of the fierce and fun way to raise money for cancer research.

Sponsors of the event included Conoco­Phillips, 104.1 KRBE, Houston’s Adult Alternative 103.7, ESPN 97.5 FM, Holiday Retirement Copperfield Estates, Beta Lamda Mu Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Inter­national, Lone Star College – Cy-Fair, Colleges Against Cancer, Lone Star College – Cy-Fair and Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union.

The Parish School Golf Tournament

Seventy-two golfers hit the green at Pine Crest Golf Club, raising more than $10,000 for The Parish School’s Financial Assistance Fund. Tournament chairmen, former TPS parent Arthur Newell, current TPS parent Rob Lomax, along with Head of School Margaret Noecker, hosted the annual tournament, which also featured an auction and awards banquet.

Sponsors of the event included The Farley Family, HTS-Heat Transfer Solutions, Gexa Energy, LP, Alfred Lindseth, Jo and Dennis Tuck, and Jack Bellinger.

Located in west Houston, The Parish School is a private, nonprofit school for children with language and learning differences who demonstrate average to above-average learning potential. By offering a unique early intervention program, the school is successful in providing the necessary tools for these children to attain academic and social achievement. The school serves a student population that ranges in age from 18 months to fifth grade.

The annual tournament raises money to provide need-based financial assistance for Parish School families; offering its specialized program to any child who needs it, regardless of a family’s ability to pay. In 2010, The Parish School awarded $286,000 in financial assistance to 34 families.

Blondes vs. Brunettes

The fifth annual flag football game “Blondes vs. Brunettes” was held at St. John’s School to help raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. Being completely volunteer based, two teams of women—divided to reflect the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes—competed in a friendly game to help end Alzheimer’s. To help raise awareness of Alzheimer’s and the game, the “Highlight or Dye” event was held, generously underwritten by Mo’s … A Place for Steaks.

Attending the event were Houston Texans’ Owen Daniels and David Anderson, John Andell, Kate and Will Stukenberg, Lindsey Love, Jill Ford and Callie Parker – Blondes vs. Brunettes 2010 chairmen, Kenady Davis, Jason Kaminsky, Tom Blake, Liz Anders, Caroline Dudley, Judy Nichols, Andy Parker and Todd Dillingham.

Since 2006, the Alzies, the young professionals group of the Alzheimer’s Association Houston & Southeast Texas Chapter, have raised more than $367,000 for local programs and services in the Houston & Southeast Texas Area. As a result of their success, the Blondes vs. Brunettes game format has been added to more than 10 Alzheimer’s Association chapters nationwide.
