Registration Now Open – Party in the Park

2017 Party in the Park graphicRegistration for the 17th Annual Party in the Park and the Sarcoma Family Picnic is now open! These are RIS signature events happening on Monday, July 24 at Como Park in St. Paul, MN.

The Sarcoma Family Picnic is for all those affected by sarcoma – patients/survivors and their close family and friends, and those who have lost a loved one to sarcoma. It is an opportunity to share good food, fellowship and mutual support. Attendance is limited with a registration deadline of July 17th, so sign up soon. We hope all picnic goers will continue the evening’s fun by attending the Party in the Park, which immediately follows the Picnic. You can register for both the Picnic and Party on one form.

The Party is also open to the public so invite your neighbors, friends and extended family. There are lots of fun activities for the kids, a silent auction, raffle, sarcoma stories, a meaningful program and entertainment. As it is one of our fundraisers, there is an entrance fee of $15 per individual or $25 per household (family up to 6 persons). Register soon, as the price will increase by $5 after July 17th. All proceeds go towards the RIS three-pronged mission of raising awareness, funding sarcoma cancer research and supporting patients and families.
