September is childhood cancer awareness month AND sickle cell disease awareness month!
We are inviting anyone who would like to recognize that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to join us at Harborview Shelter on Sunday, September 16th.
We will be painting rocks with messages for childhood cancer to raise awareness and put into public places around town.
We will have a giant message board to sign to share words of encouragement, memorialize a childhood cancer fighter or honor a childhood cancer fighter.
At 7PM, we will be lighting luminaries in honor or memory of childhood cancer fighters.
This is not a fundraising event. This is an event where local childhood cancer organizations are invited to come together to show our support for our families – let them know we are all in this together.
Thank you for your support!
You’ve seen us posting about #LiquidGoldForCURE , but what is it?
Participating local restaurants are making a custom mac & cheese (or hot dog with cheese ) dish. Every time that dish is ordered in September, $1 will be donated to CURE. The winning restaurant will be awarded with a VIP table to the Recipe for a CURE Sunday Brunch and get a cool trophy.
Why did we select mac and cheese for the #LiquidGoldForCURE challenge?
Let’s face it: kids LOVE mac & cheese. Let’s honor their fight by eating a kid-friendly (and adult-friendly, too!) dish and raising money to help their families!
