Yesterday evening, I attended a benefit atÂ Stamper's Grill PubÂ to help raise money for some friends who will be walking in theÂ Susan G Koman 3-day for the Cure. Â In case you were unaware, the foundation is focused on breast cancer and has a far reaching global impact that ranges from research to education to financial assistance.
What a good time! Â They held several raffles and prizes ranged from 18 holes of golf to wine to $150 gift certificates for local shopping. Â The donations to the cause were generous, including a guest performance byÂ The New Barleycorn. Â The food was crazy good, too! Â I have to say, the Flynns always know how to throw a party.
My friends are walking as a team,Â Flynns for the Cure. Â One team member is a BC survivor and has inspired us all with her determination and spirit. Â Each walkerÂ has committed to raise $2,300. Â Please click the link and donate to the team. Â Any size donation is appreciated.
As this post goes to my Life in Berea theme, I have to mention that the walk will begin on Friday, July 29, 2011 near theÂ Rock and Roll Hall of FameÂ in Downtown Cleveland at theÂ Port Authority Lot, 237 Erieside Ave, Cleveland, OH Â 44114 on July 29, 2011.
The closing ceremony will take place on Sunday, July 31, 2011 at theÂ Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds, 164 Eastland Rd, Berea, OH 44017.
Come and support the walkers. Â Cheering stations will be set up along the route which will be posted on the site about 2 weeks prior to the walk.
