Fifteen Foothill High students are holding a garage sale tomorrow to raise money for their Relay for Life team that is part of the Northern California event, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, being held June 25 at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills.

"Relay for Life is an overnight event, which symbolizes the fact that cancer and the fight for a cure never sleep," said team captain Christopher Wen.

The garage sale will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 6326 Camino Del Lago in Pleasanton and will include SAT/AP prep books and other books, paintings, toys, clothes, games and household appliances. Last-minute items for sale are being accepted. Contact Wen at 963-8272.

The teens have raised $400 so far for the cause.
