Skunk Alley Run/Walk ~ June 2020, Homesteaders' Days, Hot Springs, MT
For a large number of years, the Skunk Alley Run/Walk has been a consistent event. It has always been a staple of Homesteader’s Days in Hot Springs the second weekend in June. This year’s date is June 15. There is a 10K run and a 5K run/walk. You will be ‘bussed’ from town to the beginning of the race down the hill back into Hot Springs. Watch this web site for registrations forms for the races.
Drive For UR Community ~ TBA (late May/early June 2020)
For the last several years, CNSC has been the recipient of funds raised through a program sponsored by Ford Motor Company and Rehbein Ford. The parent company choses a local dealership for participation, and then they supply everything needed for the event. Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to Cancer Network for anyone with a valid license who comes in that day and takes a test drive in a new Ford vehicle.
This event is still pending, but will be announced in the local papers and on this web site. Generally, this event is held late May or early June.
Traditionally, this event occurs the Saturday before Mother’s Day and is held at the Rex Theater in Thompson Falls. We are currently in the process of getting this event going for May 11, 2019. Artists from Sanders County gather together to play music, sing, and in general, have a good time. All of the people involved donate their time and talent for the show. There is no admission charge, but we do have a basket so you can make a donation to help us raise important funds. If you are a performer, let us know if you are willing to come perform!
Yard Sale-ing ~ June 28 & 29, 2019
Always the last full weekend in June, the Sanders County Yard Sale-ing event is the place to be! Organizations as well as individuals make Sanders County one huge yard sale from border to border. CNSC will participate in the event again this year. The First Lutheran Church in Plains has donated their back lot for our use. The date has not been finalized, so again watch this site and the official Sanders County Yard Sale-ing web site as the time draws closer. If you have anything you would like to donate, call one of the CNSC contact persons – we will make an effort to gather up the goodies! It you like yard sales, you will love that weekend!
CNSC's next-to-last fundraiser of the year is the annual Fall Extravaganza. This became the signature fund raising effort 18 years ago when McGowan Grocery in Plains started a Wine & Cheese Tasting Event and Fashion Show in the basement of First State Bank in Plains.Since launching this fall fun fest, it has been held at First State Bank, Plains Grange, SC Fairground Pavilion, and the VFW hall, all in Plains. Always held on the the first Thursday in October, this year it is set for Oct. 3, at the VFW hall in Plains once again. A good time is had by all with games, raffles, a silent auction and a live auction Every bit of the money raised that night goes directly back into the community in the form of gifts. Sponsorships are requested to cover all expenses. Additional information will be available closer to October.
Please join us at the Sanders County Fairgrounds Ag Building on Saturday, November 30 at 6:00 pm
for our final fundraiser of the calendar year. The lantern you purchase will add to the CNSC coffers and honor someone dear to you who has faced cancer. Lanterns are $10 each, and thanks to a generous donaor every penny of that money will go to the Cancern Network.
Join us for one or all our fund-raining events during the year. Without your support at these activities and fun-filled evenings, we can't contiue to help your neighbors in need.
Throughout the year, Cancer Network of Sanders County holds a variety of events. We request sponsorship from many businesses in the county and from medical facilities in Montana who are likely to see patients from Sanders County. The money received from the sponsors goes directly to pay for any expenses incurred for the event. This means that every penny raised goes back out in the form of gifts to those fighting cancer. Pick one or several to attend and support.
