To show their support of the fight against cancer, communities can Paint the Town Purple by donating $5 to the Relay For Life of Pender County and receive a decorative purple bow to display inside or outside their home or business. Communities can also Paint the Town Purple by doing other activities, including putting up purple-themed displays in storefronts, painting the porch lights purple or swapping out for a purple one, or selecting a day for everyone to wear purple. Businesses can ask for donations for purple items sold in their stores. Proceeds will support the American Cancer Society. 
This event will kick off at the Hops of Spring Beer Festival at the Relay for Life of Pender County Booth.
