Off to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Fund-Raiser

I'm off to man the table for our team, The Tavern Nips, downtown for a few hours.
Doing what?
Here's the info:
Come down to the American Independence Festival this weekend and help support breast cancer research.
The Tavern Nips, a regular team at the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk each October, will be holding a fund-raiser this Saturday, July 19, in front of the Tavern at River's Edge in downtown Exeter. The team is sponsored by the downtown restaurant and its owner Jeff Roth.
The team raised more than $13,000 for the 2007 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event and hopes to top that figure at this year's event.
On Saturday, The Tavern Nips will be taking orders for specialty olives, taking orders for Yankee Candles and selling raffle tickets for an exciting prize that will be announced that day. The handmade olives are the perfect treat for a martini and are stuffed with either blue cheese, jalapenos or garlic, then finished in a special marinade.
Funds raised through the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk enable the American Cancer Society to fund breast cancer research, provide up-to-date cancer prevention and early detection information, help ensure all women have access to mammograms and follow-up care, and provide free programs and services that improve the quality of life for people facing breast cancer.
Other upcoming fund-raisers sponsored by the Tavern Nips include:
Team member Sally Gray, an independent representative for Silpada Designs, a line of fine sterling silver jewelry, will donate a portion of proceeds from all jewelry parties from now until the walk, toward the fund-raising efforts. Those who would like to schedule a party or event can contact Gray at 926-2503 or
Gray will host a Silpada Jewelry Fund-Raiser on Sept. 21 at the Tavern at River's Edge, which will include a silent auction for a number of exciting gift certificates and products from area businesses.
The time and additional details of the Sept. 21 event will be announced later this summer.
