With the theme of “Together We Will Win”, after a year off due to superstorm Sandy, the Annual Arverne Cancer Support Group — Celebration of Life dinner took place on Monday, November 4th.

The night included a moving Memorial Rose and candle light ceremony to those lost to the disease. The well- attended dinner was held at the Imperial Ballroom, at the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Arverne.

In keeping with a tradition, it ended, with everyone on the dance floor beginning with the “Survivors March/Dance” which filled the floor with all ages celebrating life.

Honored during the evening were The Wave’s own Miriam Rosenberg and Senator James Sanders Jr.

Speakers reflected on the events of the past year and also spoke of moving forward.
