Lydia Kulbida Candidate for 2013 Woman of the Year

Spreading the News For a Cure!

Mar 02, 2013


Dear Friends,


Welcome to the Team Lydia Spreading the News For a Cure 2013 Woman of the Year Campaign donation page!


We all know someone who’s been touched by cancer. My dad was a colon cancer survivor. There have been many strides made in screening and treatment, but as I saw with a friend whose beautiful 3-year-old son succumbed after a more than year-long valiant battle with leukemia, much more still needs to be done. I’m asking for your help as I start a ten-week fundraising campaign for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicating to funding blood cancer research.


Since its founding in 1949, LLS has provided more than $750 million for research which has resulted in several significant discoveries, including chemotherapy and bone marrow transplants. Nearly 958,000 Americans are currently living with blood cancers, including Capital Region men, women and children … one person is diagnosed with a blood cancer every four minutes in the U.S.


I only have between March 1st and May 9th to raise money & awareness for this extremely important cause! Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. Every dollar I raise counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most votes/raises the most money is named the local Man or Woman of the Year. Here’s how you can join me in making a difference:


Business owners have various sponsorship opportunities ranging from $1,000 to $7,500 (information on sponsorships is just a click away on the panel above to your right.) You can place an ad in the Program book - program ads are available for $250 and $500; you can make in-kind donations of goods, services or gift certificates/baskets that will be auctioned off at the Grand Finale; and you can even set aside proceeds from a day of sales or sell certain items during the 10-weeks.


Individuals can help by making a donation by simply clicking the “Donate Now” button or mailing a check made out to The Leukemia Lymphoma Society to Lydia Kulbida at News10ABC 341 Northern Blvd., Albany, NY 12204; and also by attending events and supporting businesses selling items to benefit the LLS Campaign!


I would love to see everyone at the Grand Finale on May 10th when the 2013 Man & Woman of the Year will be announced (tickets can be purchased by clicking the “Grand Finale” button above.)


Be sure to follow us on Facebook to stay informed on all that we will be during throughout the campaign http://www.facebook.com/LydiaSpreadingTheNewsForACure


These ten weeks will go by very quickly. I hope I can count on your support to continue the important research done by LLS as they provide treatment, education, patient services and ultimately find a cure! Together, Let's Spread the News!


Thank you!

Lydia
