Fun And A Great Cause In East Hampton: Roar For A Cure Carnival 2011

It doesn’t get any better than having fun and benefiting children that need our help. Join TOWN, Saturday, August 20th 2011 for the 3rd Annual Roar For A Cure Family Day Carnival ― “This Roar’s for Katy”. Besides being a highly entertaining day with celebrity guests, bands and professional athletes agreeing to attend, this is a great cause that benefits children with cancer. The Max Cure Fund For Pediatric Cancer Research, at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York City, is dedicated to researching pediatric cancers, improving treatments and finding cures that will save children’s lives.

This year’s event will be “A Roar for Katy,” in memory of twelve year old Katy Stewart, a resident of Sag Harbor, who lost her battle to cancer on December 30, 2010.
