Another great Breast Cancer 3-Day fundraiser
I am so proud and happy to see how much Ta Ta Breast Cancer is growing. It’s a rough year to raise money, and I know it’s holding lots of people back from participating in this amazing experience. But I also know how critical and important this money is in the fight against breast cancer.
Susan G. Komen is the major beneficiary of the money raised through the Breast Cancer 3-Day and every major advance in the fight against breast cancer has been touched by Susan G. Komen for the Cure. They’ve helped train more than 400 breast cancer researchers and funded more than 1,800 research projects over the past 26 years.
I can pretty confidently say that Susan G. Komen helped make my path easier. And I can happily say that they are putting lots of effort into hereditary cancer. So I’m willing to continue to rally the troops even in this tough economy.
So in keeping with the really difficult economy, one of my new teammates decided to take a new fundraising approach. She’s planning a very large outdoor summer bash and getting almost everything donated. She’s spent the past week and a half talking to everyone she knows to get food, paper goods, beverages, auction items and raffle items donated.
The admission cost for the party is totally affordable–$20 a person, $35 a couple. Best yet, nearly the entire cost of admission will go directly into the 3-Day (businesses can’t donate alcohol but they are giving it to her at cost). Where else can you go on a Saturday Night for dinner and drinks and spend less? And at the same time know that you are helping so many people.
Brogan & Partners created this really cute flier for us too.
I am so energized by her passion and enthusiasm for this party and can’t wait to see the fabulous results. We’re pretty certain the party will help her meet her minimum and fill in for the rest of the team members.
Got any additional thoughts on how we can raise even more money that evening? Anything you want to auction or raffle to support the cause? We’re open to your ideas.
