5th Carnival for Cancer is Saturday, June 2

We are very excited to announce our 5th Carnival for Cancer is Saturday, June 2, 2018 -Samantha Kascoutas 10 am to 2 pm at Questhaven park in San Elijo Hills. We will have face painting, a jumpy slide combo, games to win prizes, food including Baked Bear ice cream sandwiches, homemade pulled pork sandwiches, and a bake sale. We will also have an amazing raffle including restaurant gift cards, a family pack to House of Air, and a grand prize of $100 Visa gift card. We’d like to give a special shoutout to our Gold Sponsors Keller Williams Ray Bahadori Group https://www.facebook.com/RayBahadoriGroup/ and Everbowl http://Everbowl.com.

Our story began five years ago with a ten-year-old girl, Samantha Kascoutas, wanting to make a difference through a YMCA leadership program. Since then we have grown bigger and better with the help of the entire family, and the combined effort allowed us to raise over $15,000 in the past five years alone. All of our proceeds go towards cancer research with the American Cancer Society through the Relay for Life Carlsbad-Encinitas (team C4C). Our goal is to kick cancer’s butt through raising as much as we possibly can.
There are many ways you can help us reach our goal of raising $7,500. First, you can come support us on June 2nd at Questhaven Park. Second, you can volunteer at the event through signing up with the link on our website. You can also donate online through our C4C Relay for Life Page which is also included on our website. You can get in touch with us through our Instagram @carnivalforcancer, Facebook page Carnival for Cancer, and our website www.carnivalforcancer1.weebly.com.
Can’t wait to see you all there,
The Kascoutas Family

Attention San Elijo Hills Neighbors and our Local Businesses!

My name is Lisa Christian and I have been a resident of San Elijo Hills for 8.5 years. This November, I will be participating in the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day(r).  by walking 60 miles over the course of 3 days along the streets of San Diego.  All proceeds from this event go towards raising awareness and funding research in finding new and better ways to detect the disease at its earliest stages.  My hope is with the help of my neighbors and local businesses; I can raise enough money to reach my goal amount of $2,300.00.  I am planning a “Pink” Fundraiser event Auction/Raffle in October – proceeds from this event will go towards my goal amount.  If you have, or know of someone that owns a local business that would be willing to donate a gift card, service or item that could then be auctioned off, please contact me at LC23@cox.net.  For those of you that would like to contribute monetarily, please visit my pink page at www.the3day.org/goto/Lisa.christian Thank you so much for your support San Elijo Hills and San Elijo Life!
