The winter holiday season is a time to be spent with family, friends, and loved ones. It’s an opportunity to unwind from the hustle and bustle of every day life at the end of every year; time for self reflection of the year gone past and the look towards what lies ahead.
While the holiday tradition exists in almost every city and culture around the globe, it has a certain aura and special place right within the confines of South Philadelphia.
Philadelphia is a blue-collar city filled with a vast diversity of people and culture. We wear our hearts on our sleeves and take pride in our families, our neighborhoods, our work, our city, and ourselves.
Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society is an incredible organization with chapters existing all across the nation. The local Philadelphia Chapter is staffed with some of the most dedicated, hardworking, and genuine individuals that are always looking for ways to make a difference, involve the community, and give back to the causes they support through unique fundraising and causal event opportunities.
This holiday season, the Philadelphia Relay For Life chapter is teaming up with Broad Spectrum Sports, Philadelphia’s Most Comprehensive Sports Entertainment Network, to bring a fun, holiday themed event to the people of South Philadelphia in one of the areas most beloved venues.
The 1st Annual “Holiday Relay at Rizzo” in South Philly will be held at the oldest and proudest ice rink in Philadelphia: Rizzo Rink.
On Saturday, December 22nd from 7:30-9:30pm, Rizzo Rink will be transformed into a festive ice skate for families, friends, and loved ones right in our own backyard.
There will be a limited number of tickets available to the event due to the size of the venue, but there are several opportunities to get involved, whether or not you can make it on that day!
Two types of entry tickets will be pre-sold to the “Holiday Relay at Rizzo”. One for those who be lacing up the skates to get on the ice, and one for those who will be spectating, supervising, or simply enjoying the activities off the frozen surface.
For ticket information, please visit Broad Spectrum Sports. The event is for a great cause, and we hope to see you there!
