Led by board member, Lauren Eaton, Sky Foundation holds monthly Happy Hour get-togethers in order to come up with ideas to spread awareness and raise funding for pancreatic cancer. Just recently, Lauren Eaton & Annie Dalton were involved in the local fundraiser “Who’s Your Bartender” which was held at Dick’O’Dows in Birmingham, MI. They are always on the look out for “young professionals” to join the group and continue to great work for Sky Foundation. There will be a summer fundraiser coming soon and we hope to see YOU there! Contact Annie @ 248-385-5143 to find out more information about the YPG.
Who’s Your Bartender is organized by Project 1 which brings together 10-15 charities every year for a chance to serve behind a local bar and raising funding by selling tickets to the event and getting tips at the bar. We made $2,250 at this event so it was a big success and a nice bit of money to put to research earned by our YPG.
In 2017 our Young Professionals ran in the Detroit Free Press Marathon and raised money online prior to the event. Runners in the picture below are: Larry Marantette, Lauren Eaton, Tim Laco. We had a team of runners and a crew of volunteers help at this event. It was a wonderful team builder and a healthy activity for everyone to enjoy.
