This Week on Patch: Some Advice From Two "Pregnant" Stars And A Relay For Life
Here is a sample of what we're working on this week for Wayne Patch.
Here is a sample of what you’ll find this week on Wayne Parch.
- We’ll attend one of two scheduled appearances of Catelyn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra at the Wayne YMCA on Thursday and Friday.
Lowell and Baltierra are cast members of MTV’s “16 and Pregnant.” They are parents of 2-year-old Carly. They placed Carly up for adoption after she was born.
The engaged coupled will talk about unplanned pregnancy and adoption. They worked with Bethany Christian Services, a national family preservation and adoption agency, to find adoptive parents for Carly.
The appearances will be held from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Thursday and 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday.
For more information, or to reserve a spot, call Bethany at 201-258-3813.
- The annual Relay for Life will be held at Wayne Valley High School on Saturday.
Hundreds of cancer survivors, their families and friends attend the event. They will walk around the jogging track all afternoon and all night to honor the memory of those killed by cancer and to give strength to those still batting against the disease. Wayne high school students organize and run the event.
“Knowing that you are standing next to someone who has cancer or knows someone who is fighting it, there’s such a comfort in that,” said co-chair Quinn Fohlinger, a student at Wayne Hills High School.
- Public Image Salon is helping to raise funds for the Wayne Food Pantry.
The salon is selling authentic autographed memorabilia this week from several local professional athletes and world-renowned musicians.
Autographed items from Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Lady Gaga, and The Beatles will be on display and available to purchase.
Funds taken in will be donated to the Wayne Food Pantry. The Wayne Interfaith Network, a non-profit organization made up of volunteers from several religious organizations and churches in town, operates the pantry.
We’ll stop by the salon and let you know what’s for sale.
