The people behind the Snoqualmie Valley Relay for Life are enlisting local businesses in their colorful efforts to battle cancer. “Paint the Valley Purple,” a  promotional competition for Relay, starts February 1, and runs until the Relay kickoff celebration on Wednesday, Feb. 12. Businesses are challenged to decorate their storefronts in purple, the official color of Relay For Life, and participate in promotional and fundraising activities in support of this year’s Relay For Life event.

The business that most actively engages with the competition will be showcased at the event’s kickoff celebration, 5 p.m. Feb. 12, at the North Bend Theater. The kickoff includes activities and food, entertainment, information booths, and a guest speaker, Kim Berkebile. At 7 p.m., the movie “UP” will be shown, as a fundraiser. The Snoqualmie Valley Relay for Life committee includes Bev Jorgensen, DeAnna Haverfield, Erin Mitchell, Betty Rhynalds, Rick and Shelley Gildersleeve, Nikole King, Jeff and Teresa Warren, Kathy Boyd, Beth Anderson, Anne Loring and Bruce Sullivan.
