The New York Renaissance Faire
and Lustgarten Foundation present:
The Quest for the Cure
Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I, invites thee to join the Royal Court and Valiant Villagers of the New York Renaissance Faire in a Quest to fund a cure for pancreatic cancer!
On August 3rd and 4th, 2013, the New York Renaissance Faire will host an epic scavenger hunt, called the Quest for the Cure, throughout its Faire performance day. Proceeds from the Quest will go to the Lustgarten Foundation to Cure Pancreatic Cancer.
All Faire visitors are invited to participate. Questing Kits can be purchased for a $10 donation at the Quest for the Cure Pavilion within the Faire grounds.
“A day at Faire has long been known to heal the spirit,” sayeth Queen Elizabeth. “Now it gives us great joy to know that a day at Faire may also help heal those most sorely afflicted with the scourge of pancreatic cancer.”
Rikki Kipple-Gilbert, Producer of the New York Renaissance Faire, added, “We are proud to give our visitors an opportunity to contribute to the important work of the Lustgarten Foundation. Pancreatic cancer is the most lethal of cancers, and every penny we can raise takes us that much closer to finding a cure.”
Where: The New York Renaissance Faire — 600 Route 17A, Tuxedo, NY
When: Saturday and Sunday, August 3rd and 4th, 2013
What: An epic adventure across 35 acres. The quest for clues will guide you through an Elizabethan village filled with swashbuckling outlaws, singing wenches, courtly Lords and Ladies, bold jousters on horseback, savory treats, refreshing beverages, challenging games of skill and a wondrous marketplace featuring unique crafts and artworks. Donors who complete the Quest will enjoy an audience with our Queen where they shall be knighted for their extraordinary life-saving efforts!
Why: To date, the Lustgarten Foundation has donated over $65 million toward the quest to cure pancreatic cancer.
