August 16, 2014 at 10am - Inaugural RFL - a success!
What an extraordinary Relay for Life - the first in Mar Vista/ West LA. Organized by ACS' Ashley Millhouse, it, of course, was a huge success. Beginning with the introduction of Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti and his expressive words on stage, the program continued with Councilman Mike Bonin, joining the Mayor, in presenting a special certificate to Guest of Honor/ previous Councilman Bill Rosendahl who's fighting cancer today. We survivors were then given Survivor Medals and walked the ceremonial "Survivors Walk".
Mayor Garcetti made this day extra special, in his sharing over an hour of his unhurried time, posing for as many photos as requested and sharing, on stage, why Relay for Life is such an important, needed fundraising event. To increase the number of birthdays we all enjoy!
