AVON Breast Cancer Benefit w/ Katarina Visnevska May 24, 2011 Hey there! It’s Morgan Waller from the Marketing Department here at Rockit Ranch Productions – so I’m taking a leap and writing for AChicagoThing.com for my first time ever – Nice to “meet” all of you! Normally I spend my days sitting behind a desk and running in heels from meeting to meeting, but this week I figured I’d take a minute to fill you all in on an amazing cause that runs deep through my family’s blood… Breast Cancer. Every 3 minutes another woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. That means by the time you’re done reading this, a woman and her family are shocked with the news of cancer cells. Now, I don’t want to be a complete debbie downer, but statistics like this serve as my call to action. What can I do to make a difference? I’m not a doctor or a researcher or scientist (let’s get real…I spend my days coordinating marketing events), but what can I do for an hour or two out of MY week to lend a hand? This is why I have dedicated my resources to plan a benefit THIS Friday, May 27th at the Underground. Doors will open at 9pm with specialty pink cocktails and a live performance by electric violinist Katarina Visnevska (if you haven’t seen her perform, she’s becoming a Chicago legend!) Bring your friends after dinner out in the city, or your coworkers if you’re working late, or your out of town visitors! What a better way to kick off Memorial Weekend than giving back? All donations taken at the door will go towards the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. After all, like I like to say… “Everybody loves ‘em, now let’s help save ‘em!” Feel free to shoot me an email with questions or to share your own story – firstname.lastname@example.org.
