It's that time of year again! On Friday, January 5 we are holding a fundraiser at TR's Place in Belleville, IL to raise money for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center.
The basic traditions still apply... We party in ugly sweaters to raise money for cancer research. It's a belated christmas party, but there's nothing wrong with extending the holidays.
Most people's lives have been impacted by cancer in one form or another. This event has been held every year for the past six years in honor of my mom, who passed away from lung cancer 11 years ago. It arose as a way to celebrate her and to raise money for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center, where she had recieved treatments. There are breakthroughs in cancer taking place at Siteman and Washington University School of Medicine each and every day because of fundraisers like this. It's all because of generous people like you!
There is a $10 minimum donation to attend. You can pay in advance by donating here or by Venmo at @JennyBaudendistel. You can also pay at the door that night. Please let me know if you will be able to attend so we have an estimated head count.
All proceeds raised throughout the night will go directly to this awesome cause. The night will include a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, cooler of booze raffle and more. SAVE THE DATE!
