Week Two of Race for the Cure Fundraising Prizes Begins
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Downtown Evansville is closer than ever, so if you haven’t registered or formed a team yet, you still have about two and a half weeks. Last week we mentioned other ways for race participants to raise funds for life-saving cancer research.
Just like last week, registered racers can win great prizes for raising funds on their own in the Komen Pledge Program. The first prize was the dinner for two at Cavanaugh’s, which was won by Melissa Hawk of the Rev it Up team. This week, for raising the average cost of a mammogram ($100), you can enter a drawing for a one night stay for two at Tropicana Evansville Hotel, and breakfast for two at Temptations Buffet. Remember, by inviting ten friends to donate only $10 each you can get an entry into the drawing, and each extra $100 raised on top of that will get you another entry. How easy is that?
To be eligible, have your donors give online, and make sure they select your name instead of donating anonymously so you can receive credit. You can also collect cash or check donations and bring them to the Komen Office at 4424 Vogel Road, Suite 205 before 4:30 p.m. on Friday.
The winner will be drawn on Monday, September 16th. He or she will be contacted via email and will be mentioned in the Komen Weekly newsletter. Any funds you have raised since registering for the race will count, so if you didn’t make $100 last week, this is your chance!
