September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
GOLDEN: Giving Others Life to Dream Every Night Dinner & Tejano Dance is a Go Gold initiative organized by a group of individuals concerned about the awareness of childhood cancers in the Latino community.
All proceeds raised from ticket sales will go directly to the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO). whose mission is to address the needs of families through programs that emphasize information, advocacy, awareness, and research. ACCO provides:
- Free Kits to families affected by childhood cancers in Spanish & English. Kits include books and videos to help family members cope with cancer.
- Funds for child cancer research
- Literature about chldhood cancers
Your contribution will help fund ACCO initiatives. $15 will put one of the many available books in the hands of a child with cancer, $25 will give a book to the child’s teacher, and $100 will give a full set of materials to a family in need of them. More information about materials can be found at http://www.acco.org
Local organizations that provide resources to families and childen affected by childhood cancers will be present to share resources and promote volunteer oppurtunities.
Go Gold and join us for this very worthy cause: “because kids can’t fight cancer alone.”
