September is Childhood Cancer awareness month. About 10,380 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2015, according to the American Cancer Society.
This month we’re honoring children with cancer and their families by raising a glass (and some funds) for the awesome folks at Connor’s Heroes.
We took a little break for the summer but we’re back to raise a glass to the hard working people at Connor’s Heroes’®.
Each month we get together for great prizes, a relaxed atmosphere, delicious free appetizers and have a really great time… who knew philanthropy could be this fun?!
If you haven’t joined us for Wine Down yet here’s what you can expect:
- $10 at the door goes directly to charity.
- Generous glasses of wine at a great discount.
- Delicious FREE appetizers provided by The Wine Loft.
- Raise more money for the selected non-profit by purchasing raffle tickets and winning great prizes.
- Meet new people (like Christa and Sarah from Richmondmom) and network or grab a quiet spot for you and a friend to enjoy a kid-free catch up.
As much as $1,000 is raised each month in just a couple hours at each event at the Wine Loft so feel good about connecting with other parents, family-focused businesses and raising money for a great cause.
Connor’s Heroes’® helps to provide support for children who must endure cancer treatment and their families. Inspired by personal experience, Connor’s Heroes’® has given individualized support to nearly 700 children with cancer and their families.
Currently, Connor’s Heroes® provides assistance to children and their families who are being treated for cancer in Richmond, Virginia at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, including the ASK Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic and the VCU Massey Cancer Center Bone Marrow Transplant Unit.Connor’s Heroes® also provides Heroes Backpacks to children treated for cancer at Carilion Clinic Children’s Hospital in Roanoke.
