Friends and colleagues
It's that time of year - my annual fundraising campaign to battle childhood cancer - the St. Baldrick's event! For the seconed consecutive year, I will shave my head for donations towards childhood cancer research and support. Many of you have contributed last year and once again, I want to thank you for your donations – we have raised over $175,000 in the battle vs. America’s number one killer of children – and we could have not done it without you.
Our team’s theme continues to be “Going Bald So Kids Don’t Have To.” Let me tell you how you can participate in this worthy cause:
I've set a personal fundraising goal of $600.00 for 2012 - and I ask for your help. Last year, we raised over $86,000 to give us a four-year total of over $175k! With your help again this year, not only we can reach our 2012 team goal of $100,000, more importantly, you can help us fight childhood cancer. I (and the beneficiaries of your gift) truly appreciate your donation.
Joining in the Fun
For those of you who have a wild hair this year (pun intended), you can join our team as a “shavee” as well and simply register with our team (instructions are on my page). Trust me, for all of the fear and trepidation you might have, it is truly liberating to see your own bald head for this cause. I’ll even give you an eye-patch so you can really look tough!
It will be a fun day for the entire family as we will have a DJ, Live Music, hourly Raffle Drawings, and access to restaurants, ice skating, go-karts, and much more.
Keep in mind that 100% of your tax-deductible donations to the event go directly to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. I know your charitable contributions are finite, so I want thank you in advance for your consideration of this worthy cause.
If you have questions or want to learn more about this initiative, do not hesitate to call or email me anytime. In the meantime, please help us reach our goal of $100,000 to help with childhood cancer research.
Always strong in the fight against cancer,
