Honoring Lisa 5/18/2014

As the one year anniversary of Lisa earning her wings approaches I wondered how/what I should do to "mark the moment".  I found out that there will be a St. Baldrick event in Plymouth on 5/18 at Plymouth Roc from 1-5.  It seems like the perfect thing to do in Lisa's memory.

St Baldricks is an organization dedicated to raising funding for childhood cancer and they have very  little overhead costs.  Only 2.8% of general St. Baldrick's finances go towards management/general fund. So 97% of the money you contribute will go directly towards helping children who are fighting cancer.

At the event, participants agree to get their heads shaved, and supporters agree to donate some money to the organization in order to laugh at said participants, and help stamp out childhood cancer, all at the same time. This event will also have many fun things besides the shaving of the heads, and you do not have to have your head shaved to come out and have some fun. There will be raffles for items donated from places like Dean Sadler Salon, Salon Awesome, Busch's, A&E Jewelry, Residence Inn and I AM DETROIT clothing. Other fun things are, 50/50 drawing, photo booth, kid's games, and food and drink specials. 

I reached out to the coordinator to thank him for raising awareness and funding for childhood cancer.  I told him I would like to post the information on our blog in hopes of getting friends and family to join us in honoring Lisa and all the other little warriors. The event generally draws 200+ people so there will be a crowd but the coordinator has offered to try and reserve some  time/space necessary to accommodate Lisa's family and friends. 

If you would like to join us in this event please let me know ASAP how many people and I will look at getting seating so we can join together on 5/18 in honor of Lisa.

BLAST Cancer! Live Strong!
