  The highlight was the fabulous cupcake display in the center of the beautiful Barrington Community Stadium built and donated by LEOPARDO Construction of Hoffman Estates.
   Sara Hammuck from American Cancer Society, Northwest Suburban Region, says: "We brought in close to 18,000 cupcakes. 16,478 of those fit on our gorgeous 18 tier display tower through carefully engineered blueprints by Imperial Woodworking Company of Palatine.

  " With overflowing community support for this world record attempt, we exceeded our goals and had to begin selling the extra cupcakes at our concessions as we continued to raise money for cancer that evening. Other food available was provided by Jimano's Pizza of Fox River Grove and MillRose Restaurant."

  "A unique Song Sponsor program which featured Ron Hawking, Quinn Rowe, Premium Blend, X, BCC, and many local talented performers to raised additional funds.
   A new silent auction & take a chance tent was added along with great kids activities for all to enjoy. We also sold a record number of 1300 luminaria which glowed through the night to honor loved ones."

  The donated sweet treats were sold for $1 each, with leftovers donated to area food banks.

  Barrington's Relay for Life event raised more than $364,000, according to organizers, and the money is still coming in.

   Events and community involvement went "round" the clock. Highlights included a survivor dinner with over 200 survivors which was made possible through a generous grant from the Barrington Area Community Foundation with food served and provided by Millrose Restaurant in Barrington.

   "This community really came together in a tremendous demonstration of caring and generosity this weekend," said Joanne Dalessandro, who co-chaired the event with her daughter Dina.

 "Having cancer is hard, but walking alongside survivors and caregivers provides us with such power and hope. That helped keep us focused and inspired to raise as much money as possible to help save lives and to walk around the clock in honor of those in our community who have been touched by cancer."

   "The money raised at Relay For Life of Barrington helps fund American Cancer Society programs that are provided free to area residents to help them take steps to prevent cancer, get well when cancer strikes, fund the research that helps us better understand and prevent cancer, and fight back by empowering our voices and working with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat this disease," said Dalessandro.

  "Relay is all about hope and the many birthday celebrations we have to look forward to now and in the future thanks to our continuing efforts."
