A Fundraiser for a Friend


I've worked with Colleen for some time now, and always say hi to Jim when at Whole Foods - I had no idea he was dealing with this (and for the 3rd time!).  Please find it in your heart to help...

---------------

As most of you know, our dear friend Colleen Burke and her family have been dealing with the Stage III brain cancer of her partner, Jim. As a result the medical bills are piling up and Colleen’s and Jim’s friends and family have organized a golf tournament at Mountain Dell and Concert & Silent Auction Fundraiser at Harry O’s for Sunday, June 7. But, help is needed in recruiting golfers and getting people to the concert and silent auction and that is why I am sending out an “ask” to all of you on Leadership who may have the time and energy to help make this endeavor a success. 

All of the details of Jim’s journey can be seen at http://jimstandingup2cancer.webs.com/golftournconcert.htm but in a nutshell here are ways you can help this effort:

  • Recruit a team and register for the “Caddy Shack” themed golf tournament.
  • Collect/Donate Silent/Live auction items and prizes for the fundraiser
  • Make a donation to the James Heath Brain Cancer Fund at Zion’s Bank. The money raised will go to pay for medical bills and other expenses.
  • Volunteer to help organize or publicize the fundraiser.
  • Buy tickets to the fundraiser for everyone you know.

 I know Colleen is stressed about getting everything done to make this event successful and I also know she would never ask for help. So if you have the time to step up and take a piece off of her plate please email her atcolleen@parkcityinfo.com.

 

Thanks for your prayers, hearts and time.
