St. John Events

February 21
Light Up The Night
Winston Wells Ball Park
6:00 pm

The St. John Cancer Fund will be hosting their first annual 18 hour event Feb 21 to Feb 22.  Light Up the Night will be held at the Winston Wells ball field beginning at 4pm on Sat. Feb 21st.  Local businesses and organizations will create teams who will walk all night to both honor and support those who have been diagnosed with cancer.

Live local music, Fire dancing by Island Fire as well as a special appearance by Cirque Tacular, will keep the crowd and walkers entertained all night.

At 8pm an Illumination ceremony will be held to honor both those who have lost their battle and those who are still fighting.  Candles in white tribute bags will line the track, each bearing the name of a loved one whose life has been changed by cancer.  If you would like a love one to be remembered or supported during the event, luminary bags can be purchased for $5 by contacting Jessie at (340)514-8160.

All proceeds from Light Up the Night will go directly St. Johnians affected by cancer.  For more information on the St. John Cancer Fund, go to www.stjohncancerfund.org.

Conquerors of the Useless
Chris Malloy, Director & Co-Writer
| 2010 | 85 min.

“180° South: Conquerors of the Useless” follows Jeff Johnson as he retraces the epic 1968 journey of his heroes Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins to Patagonia.

Along the way he gets shipwrecked off Easter Island, surfs the longest wave of his life — and prepares himself for a rare ascent of Cerro Corcovado.

Jeff’s life turns when he meets up in a rainy hut with Chouinard and Tompkins who, once driven purely by a love of climbing and surfing, now value above all the experience of raw nature — and have come to Patagonia to spend their fortunes to protect it.
