THE STORY:

Hey Everyone,

Save the date! Vic and I are having a fundraiser for that marathon we were telling you about! We're participating in the Hampton half marathon to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Come one, come all! We would love to see you there, so feel free to bring a friend or two, or three or four =) It'll be tons of fun plus you will be supporting a fabulous cause!
We're having our fundraiser at this hip bar, Katra, which has a chill Morrocan feel to it. It's gorgeous!

Happy Hour Specials from 6:00-8:00PM on 8/11/10 are:
2 for 1 drinks(buy 1 get 1 free) well drinks
$5 beers
$6 wines

Katra
217 Bowery, New York 10002
212-473-3113

There is a $5.00 cover charge which includes a free raffle ticket to one of 52 cool prizes like IPod shuffles, Reco Premium Jeans and other cool stuff. A huge thank you to Gazelle http://www.gazelle.com Milly NY and Reco Jeans http://shop.recojeans.com for providing raffle prizes. All proceeds of raffle tickets are going to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Why are we doing this?

“At 7 am this morning (July 20, 2010), our 5 year old grandson Mikey went to heaven very peacefully with his Mom and Dad at his side. Mikey’s spirit and joy for family and his "friends" was infectious. It is almost impossible not to feel his enthusiasm, quick and hilarious wit and joy for everyday things.”- Mikey’s grandmother

Michael Lehmacher was battling a rare form of leukemia-(Acute Myelogenous Leukemia-AML) for the past year. He was waiting for a bone marrow transplant, but he wasn’t able to fight any longer. He was diagnosed at age 3, remained in remission after a year of treatments, and lived a relatively normal life up until about 4 months ago.

This is why we are getting up early on weekends and are sweating through this very hot summer to train for the Hampton event. Every dollar that is raised is so important. No family should have to watch a child suffer and lose their battle with Leukemia or any other blood cancer.
