In honor of the late Sherry Scott, who passed away last year due to cancer, employees of North Oxford Baptist Church’s Creative Learning Center (CLC) have formed Team Sherry Scott and planned a special Relay for Life fundraiser named Pancakes and Playdates.
Beverly Kagey, program director of CLC, said she wanted to do something in honor and memory of Scott, which led her and other employees who worked alongside Scott to form a team to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
“We wanted something that would bring children in,” Kagey said. “We’re going to have all different kinds of play stations for the kids to be able to get out of this rainy weather, and have fun, and raise money for a good cause.”
Children will be able to participate in sack races, sand art, jumping in a bounce house, dressing up in a variety of provided costumes for a photo booth among many other activities. There will also be special guest appearances from Elsa, Anna and Kristoff.
Kagey said the money being raised will directly benefit Lafayette County. So far, Team Sherry Scott has raised over 900 dollars.
“There are people out there now that are struggling with cancer,” Kagey said. “We need a cure for it. The only way that we’re going to be able to find a cure for it is to help raise money. Cancer is real, and it’s out there. We have to do something about it.”
Pancakes and Playdates will take place tomorrow, March 12, at the Family Life Center of North Oxford Baptist Church, which is located on 204 County Road 101. The event will take place from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. The costs are $7 per person or $25 for a family of four.
