Margaritas for Melanoma
December 4, 2010 at 6pm
Please join us on Saturday, December 4, 2010 at Rosie’s Cantina in Millbrae where we will kick off the first in a series of FUN-raising events for melanoma charities.
Our December event, Margaritas for Melanoma, will benefit the Melanoma Research Foundation. Research is of the utmost importance because of the lack of treatment options available to those with this deadly cancer. Every hour in the US, someone dies from melanoma – the most common form of cancer for young adults 25 to 29-years-old. Mike’s Stage 3 diagnosis at age 41 was devastating – but there are so many others who are worse off and need our help. The Melanoma Research Foundation has been instrumental in bringing together patients, drug companies, and doctors so they can collaborate and beat ‘the beast’ together.
Margaritas for Melanoma will include margaritas, of course – plus a Mexican buffet, a “pick-a-prize” raffle, and karaoke! Here are just a few of the items you could win in the raffle:
- Sun protection from UV Skinz.com – Rhonda Sparks started UVSkinz after losing Darren Farwell (her husband and Emily’s high school buddy) to melanoma when he was just 32.
- A week-long stay at a beach-front Florida condo (Jennifer Vessels)
A photography package from Jaime Martin Photography (see our pics on her site!) worth over $250.
$100 gift certificate to Zen Sushi in Millbrae (Marco Gabbiani and Vanessa Clark)
Bella Vista restaurant gift certificate (Jay and Laura Morris)
One day of Mike’s handyman services (put him to work!)
Children are welcome and we have various ticket options available – please visit the EventBrite ticket page for prices and options.
If you can’t make it to the event, you can also donate in any amount on Mike’s Firstgiving page for the Melanoma Research Foundation: http://www.firstgiving.com/mikemcauliffe
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ON DECEMBER 4!
Mike and Emily McAuliffe
