The American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Arcadia was held this past weekend at the Santa Anita Race Track. The event ran from 11 am - 11 am, Saturday-Sunday, June 26-27, 2010. The event was a huge success. About 50 teams participated and raised in excess of $100,000.00 to date, to benefit the American Cancer Society. The event this year was in honor of two of our City co-workers, Arcadia Fire Department Captain Andy Troncale and Firefighter Gerry Martin who are both battling cancer.
44 members of the Arcadia Police Department and the Arcadia Police Officers' Association teamed up and brought in over $7,500.00 in donations. The APOA Team was tops in on-line donations and was a gold sponsor. Thanks to Stacked Sandwich and the Outback for their donations and contribution in helping to make our participation a success.
