GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - You're Invited to join the American Cancer Society to save lives and create a world with more birthdays.
On Tuesday, December 4, 2012, you can enjoy one of the area's premier events, "Holiday Wrappings Luncheon & Fashion Show". For over 20 years, we have provided this wonderfully elegant experience for our community to enjoy.
Doors open at 10:30 to allow you time to plan your bidding strategy as you meander through the extravangant Chinese and Silent Auctions. Enjoy the gourmet lunch and comraderie as you chat with your dining partners. Don't forget to wave over one of those handsome young men selling 50/50 tickets. Then, sit back and relax as our runway models parade in a variety of fashions selected especially for our show by generous local Retailers.
You'll be entertained throughout the event. And, as we come together to enjoy this day for a cause, the American Cancer Society will continue to save lives and create more birthdays by helping people to stay well and get well, find cures, and fight back against a disease that has taken too many lives.
For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what we've learned through research and turning it into what we do, we have contributed to a 15 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and 2005. That means that we helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created the potential for more birthday celebrations. Overall, 12 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year.
Now that's a reason to party, so join us! Let's join together to save lives... We hope to see you there!
