On February 25, 2017, the Psyched for Life Team consisting of Angie Draheim (captain), Aileen Bailey, Anne Marie Brady, Nathan Foster, James Mantell, Kelly Muldoon, Scott Mirabile, Jennifer Tickle, Renee Dennison, and numerous family members and friends participated in the 8-hour, 8th Annual SMCM American Cancer Society Relay for Life event. Overall, the team helped to raise general and brain cancer awareness as well as $4,805 for ACS research & patient support programs. The entire Relay event raised nearly $15,250.
As part of their pre-event and on-site fundraising, the team raffled off two handmade fleece tie blankets (created and donated by Eleanor Numera, Angie’s grandmother, and Angie herself). They were won by Suzanne Perry and Jenna Holmes, both supporters from Dameron Daycare II. At the event, the team also raffled off two sets of drinking glasses upcycled from wine bottles by Scott Mirabile; they were won by student Terran Potter ’20 and Brian Miskcolzi. A Sweet Frog Giftcard went to Nicky Draheim and a Chipotle giftcard went to Megan Lesavage ’17.
Angie Draheim and James Mantell along with family members and friends stayed all night (well, until it was over at 2am) for the fight!
