Cornell Lacrosse PINK event Saturday April 19 noon and 3pm.

Both the Cornell Men’s Lacrosse and the Cornell Women’s Lacrosse teams will be sporting PINK on Saturday in Schoellkopf. The Men play BROWN at noon and the Women play YALE at 3pm.  The women’s players will be selling t-shirts at the tailgate parties in the Crescent parking lot prior to the men’s game and also in the stands during the first half of the men’s game. As in the past two years, they plan to donate proceeds from the t-shirt sales to the Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes.
Check out the promotional video for the event!

Come celebrate the Cancer Resource Center in 70's style!
THAT 70's SHOW! Sat. April 19th from 7-9:30pm at the Hanger Theatre

We're a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll (and disco and punk and Motown). Come hear 70s songs you love from bands and friends you love, or soon will! The Purple Valley, The Tarps, El Caminos, Golden Fang, and The Resonations perform along with talented special guests. In this 70s style variety show, you'll also watch ballet and disco dancers, the SufferJets, the Chess Kids, and a very short and funny film. You might even have the opportunity to cameo in the show yourself! This is a true community effort-- part show, part party for the Cancer Resource Center of the Fingerlakes. Wonderful local businesses supported us so that your donation goes straight to CRC. 

General admission. Tickets are Pay-As-You-Can and are available at the Cancer Resource Center and Ithaca Guitar Works or contact us on Facebook. Suggested donations are $25 - hit single, $35 - solid gold, $50-platinum...remember that ALL of the proceeds will be donated to the Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes! That all being said.....we WANT YOU at the show so don't let money be a reason not to go.

Savory and sweet snacks, Gimme! coffee, water, and assorted 70s concessions will be available to benefit CRC. Beer and wine for sale to benefit the Hangar.

While you're there, buy some tickets for an Ithaca Modern Quilt Guild raffle: 1 ticket for $1/ 6 tickets for $5/15 tickets for $10. Includes wonderful raffle prizes: A psychedelic Easter basket from Life's So Sweet, a beautiful bag from One World Market, A painted planter from One World Market, a cookbook from Moosewood, and a handmade batik bag from Barb Jastran.

Bring your friends, put on your bell bottoms, and come celebrate the Cancer Resource Center in 70's style!
