Team Greg has been formed and T-shirts are being sold with Scarlotti’s signature and the myeloma ribbon on the front and the signatures of those who pay to support the myeloma cause on the back.

T-shirts are $10 for small, medium, large and xlarge and xxlarge. Add $1 for sizes larger than XXlarge.

There is also a $10 fee to help get the shirts made, making the total cost for shirt.

Signers are asked to write their name on a plain piece of white paper and it will be transferred to the shirt. At least 200 names are needed for the shirts and Team Greg must sell at least 200 T-shirts.

The second event is a family fun day at St. Mary’s Medical Center behind Coal Grove Fire Department Saturday from 1-5 p.m. Team Greg will serve beans and cornbread cooked on an open fire and have live music, face painting, vendors and crafters, inflatables, popcorn, baked goods and auctions.

On Monday Giovanni’s in Coal Grove will donate a percentage of their sales for the day to the Scarlotti fund.
