Behind the Seams: ILP gala early bird tickets!

March 14, 2013

Kristen and I in 2009 after her beautiful speech. A moment I will never forget

Some of you have experienced this event in the past and have come out to support me and my dear friend Kristen Martinez when we were co-chairs together in 2008 & 2009. I have been on the committee since Kristen's passing and it is different not organizing everything with her. I miss her dearly. Kristen inspired me the first day I met her! We met at my first volunteer meeting for the YSC. I will never forget that moment or that day. When she told me she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer at the age of 31 I was shocked and at that moment I knew I had to help 150% and became a co-chair that year. Kristen was full of love and courage and taught me that you must move on and enjoy every moment life has to offer.
This year it would mean the world to me to have you all be part of this In Living Pink GALA.

I promised myself I would continue to support and raise awareness on behalf of Kristen every day. MAKE YOUR MARK! INSPIRE CHANGE! LEAVE YOUR LEGACY!
Thank you all for your support. Please take a moment to support by making a donation or reserving a discounted early-bird ticket on Respond by March 30th and you will be listed in the evening’s journal as an early supporter!    OH its my birthday weekend too! SO we can have some cocktails and celebrate and shed some tears and dance and play at the casino and win prizes and laugh and live. xo

Early bird tickets are $170 (originally $195)! You can purchase tickets here!

It is a harsh fact that young women can and do get breast cancer and often face issues that differ from their older counterparts. Young Survival Coalition works to positively affect these critical issues by providing educational resources, support programs, and local services to over 200,000 women across the country. Through these efforts, young women are empowered and are not left to face breast cancer alone.  
In Living Pink, YSC’s signature fundraising event, raises vital awareness for the mission, as well as substantial funds for continuing its crucial programming.  Your participation in this event enables YSC to continue to be a light of hope during a very difficult time in a young woman’s life.
Let me know if anyone has questions. 
Excited to see everyone there! Thank you for your support!
