Saturday event honors memory of past bank president Randy Proctor
Randy Proctor had a fun-loving spirit, keeping a leg lamp in his office. It's fitting that Clackamas County Bank honors his memory with a pink flamingo-themed Relay for Life team.
Proctor, the fourth generation of family bank leadership, died in 2006 at age 55 after battling cancer. He had served as the bank's president from 1988 until his death.
From 7-11 p.m. June 25, The CCB Pink Flamingos and hundreds of others will gather for Party on the Patio at the Zigzag Inn, 70162 E. Highway 26, Welches. The fourth annual event sponsored by the bank celebrates Proctor's life and benefits the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
'Randy was happy-go-lucky, and we want to make this a positive experience,' said Heidi Smart, a Clackamas County Bank insurance specialist and Relay for Life bank team captain. 'The point is to have fun, celebrate and have a party as opposed to a memorial.'
Party on the Patio is one of the biggest Sandy Relay for Life fundraisers, with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.
The CCB Pink Flamingos is a team of bank employees. The group works in conjunction with a team of family and friends of employees. In total, the teams include 20 people.
'My brother would have been in his element,' Cathy Stuchlik, current bank president, said of Party on the Patio in an earlier interview with The Post.
The event includes a musical performance by Freefall Classic Rock, a silent auction and a drawing for an 18-speed Titan Trailblazer Mountain Bike.
Smart said the auction offered a spectrum of prices, accommodating all budgets. Auction items include art, a metal sculpture dog, pictures, gift certificates, flower pieces, and 'bugs made out of light bulbs.'
Food and drink are available for purchase through the Zig Zag Inn.
Tickets, which are $10, can be purchased now through CCB or the day of the event at Zig Zag Inn.
Minors are welcome to attend the event, but are not allowed in the bar.
Smart said last year's event brought in more than 300 people and $3,500 The team fundraising goal for the year is $10,000.
Those in attendance this year are encouraged to bring their own folding lawn chairs.
Relay for Life is a fundraising effort for the American Cancer Society. Its goal is spread awareness of cancer and celebrate those who have survived.
The Sandy Relay for Life is scheduled from 6 p.m. July 29 to 10 a.m. July 30 at Sandy High School.
