BENEFITING: SUSAN G KOMEN BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 24, 2010
By the age of 30, one out of 229 women will develop breast cancer. Our goal is to increase awareness by hosting a cocktail fundraiser to benefit breast cancer awareness programs and research.
The goal is to raise as much money as possible to benefit The Charity selected. We want to partner with organizations whose values are in line with our own. The total donation will depend on which sponsors will support us, given we obtain 100% expenses outsourced to our sponsors. We estimate that $2,000 is an obtainable donation goal by which half of it, could be obtained by an employer contribution matching program.
We are in the selection and approval process with two reputable breast cancer charities. Both are accredited by the American Institute of Philanthropy with at least a grade of “B+” rating. Our decision will be based on minimum donation requirements set by The Charity, local presence in the community, and the support we receive from The Charity to maximize breast cancer awareness.
The event will be held at The Palace (1100 W Webster Avenue Chicago, IL) in the heart of Lincoln Park. With its 1970s interior design and one-of-a-kind architecture, this 5,000 sq. ft. location can hold up to 200 guests including the live band.
The overall goal is not only to donate as much of the proceeds as possible to The Charity, but just as important as monetary donations, is to provide as much awareness as possible about breast cancer to our guests.
Thank you for taking time to read our plan. You should definitely join our team, order a tee, donate some money, and/or attend the event if you're in town!! See you there!
