Join us as we hike to the top of Starved Rock in support of a cure for breast cancer. Our event will run from 9am – 11am with four guided hikes departing from the Back Door Lounge every 30 minutes. Hikes departing on the half hour include a side trip to beautiful French Canyon. Hikers may choose to participate on their own and depart at any time. Pre-registration is required. Cost is $20 per person and includes a t-shirt, a light breakfast, a memory hope stone as well as a donation to our local chapter of Relay for Life. Sign up by September 14 to guarantee your shirt size. We encourage all participants to head to downtown Utica after their hike for Angel of Hopefest.
Angel of Hopefest is a free street party hosted by The Utica Business Association, August Hill Winery and Team Angels Among Us. There will be drink specials, food, artisan vendors, raffles, 50/50 and live music from Burn N’ Bush, Big Uproar and Lizzi Neal Band. Angel of Hopefest will be taking place downtown Utica and will be running from 12pm-5pm. The purpose of all of these events is to celebrate breast cancer survivors, help those in the fight, and remember those we’ve lost.
