BANGOR - The Hollywood Casino Raceway in Bangor went to the dogs Father's Day weekend for the third annual Greater Bangor Bark for Life event. The gathering is an American Cancer Society event that encourages participants to bring their four-legged family members with them as they support, raise awareness and collect donations for cancer research. With doggy contests, demonstrations, food and vendors on site, there's something for everyone to enjoy before the night ends with a one lap walk of remembrance around the track.

"There's only two Bark for Life's in Maine so we've got people who have traveled from all across the state to come and fight back, which is what this is all about," said Lisa Eldridge, event co-chair. "I don't think I've met anyone, whether pet or human, who hasn't been touched by cancer."
