PORTER | Dangerous Divas, a team for this year's American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of Duneland, will host a bake sale during the Family 4th Fest on Thursday at Hawthorne Park. The team has coordinated with the Chesterton Lions Club to have their baked goods available during the annual pancake breakfast and turtle derby that morning.
Dangerous Divas was formed by Kylee Donnella, who lost her “Nana” to cancer. She decided to form a team to honor her. After talking to her friends about forming a team, she realized that being 12 years old doesn’t make you immune to cancer. Many of Kylee’s friends had mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends who have fought cancer. Her team is a group of 12 to 13 year old girls committed to giving cancer a run for its money.
All proceeds will benefit the Relay for Life of Duneland, which will be held from noon to 6 a.m. July 13-14 at Chesterton Middle School, 651 W. Morgan Ave. For more information about this year’s relay, visit www.relayforlife.org/dunelandin.
