Sleepy's Hosts Relay for Life Event

HICKSVILLE, N.Y.-Sleepy's hosted the Corporate American Cancer Society Relay for Life event earlier this month.

More than 450 company employees and their families, along with a number of Sleepy's vendors, attended the event, which featured a variety of activities including a dunk tank, pony rides and a barbecue. A make-shift track was set up on the grounds of Sleepy's corporate headquarters here, on which participants walked in memory of those who lost their lives to cancer, and in honor of those who are fighting the disease.

The event raised nearly $110,000 for the American Cancer Society, which included a $10,000 check presented by Sleepy's President David Acker and Adam Blank, chief operating officer.
