Morningstar helps Relay for Life

Morningstar Residential Care Center in Oswego recently hosted a chicken BBQ fundraiser for the upcoming Relay for Life event.  The facility’s kitchen staff prepared full BBQ chicken dinners that were available to all staff members.  All proceeds from the event benefited the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. “This was the first time that we have done a chicken barbecue,” said Kelsey Rose, director of activities for Morningstar Residential Care Center. “We also held drawings for gift baskets that were donated by our employees. It was a big success. The employees and the residents enjoyed the dinners and it was a great opportunity for Morningstar to help raise much-needed funds for a great cause. Having had one of my close relatives pass away from breast cancer I strongly support the mission of the Relay for Life event and its efforts to raise money for cancer research.” Relay For Life is a celebration of survivorship – an occasion to express hope and a shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many loved ones.  The Oswego Relay For Life event will begin at 6:45 p.m. June 13 at the Oswego High School track and continue through 6 a.m. June14.
