This Saturday, April 30th 2011, Fair Game will donate 20% of all sales to the Be The Cure foundation.
Be The Cure is an immensely successful grass-roots charity organization whose mission is to bring awareness and funding to pediatric cancer research.
Casey Patton, a Downers Grove resident started Be The Cure in 2007. Casey was diagnosed with a brain tumor almost five years ago and began treatment at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. It was during the early days of her treatment that Casey discovered the depressing state of pediatric cancer research in our country – it is severely underfunded. Shortly thereafter, Casey and a few of her friends at Downers Grove South High School started Be The Cure. Since its inception, BTC has raised over $76,000 for the Children’s Memorial Hospital Falk Brain Tumor Center
A good customer and friend of Fair Game came to us and asked if we would like to host a fund-raiser for BTC. The answer was quick and decisive – YES!
So this Saturday April 30th, we will take 20% of our sales and donate it all to BTC.
As an added bonus – Zoey, a therapy dog from the Delta Society will be visiting most of the day. Zoey is a 2 year-old Lab/Rott mix who is trained to work with behaviorally and emotionally disabled children and adults. She helps them with physical rehab, reading fluency and comprehension, and visits the sick (and our store!).
Come on down this Saturday, visit Zoey, and help support a great cause started by a local hero. Thanks Casey!
