Date set for Bangor 'Bark for Life'

BANGOR - Dog owners and their canine companions are gearing up for the first Greater Bangor Bark for Life fundraiser that will take place near Main Street in June. The group of volunteers organizing the event has been meeting frequently to work out the details to ensure the occasion will be a successful one for the American Cancer Society.

"My goal is to have this event become something that the residents of the greater Bangor area look forward to every year. I want 'Bark for Life' to become something that Bangor is known for," said Elizabeth Tilton, Bark for Life volunteer.

Since the disease does not discriminate, dogs are just as capable as their owners of being diagnosed with cancer. The Greater Bangor Bark for Life volunteers hope to raise $10,000 this summer to support the American Cancer Society's ongoing effort to find a cure for this disease. And they've already gotten two corporate sponsors, Smith Concrete in Newburgh and The Furniture Gallery in Bangor.
