Chart Your Course
A Celebration of Life, Travel, & Family
a fundraiser to benefit
Crossing the Finish Line

Sunday September 12, 2010
Radisson Hotel - Scranton

12pm to 3:30pm

Tickets: $50 or $350 for a table of 8.

CHART YOUR COURSE--A CELEBRATION OF LIFE, TRAVEL & FAMILY is an event for Crossing the Finish Line, a non-profit organization that assists young adult cancer patients, ages 24 to 50, and their families by giving them a “break from cancer.”

This organization offers a retreat from the unyielding physical and emotional demands of cancer treatment – a hopeful respite during the throes of a courageous battle – by providing a one week all-expense paid excursion to homes and resorts in Orlando, the Poconos, the Jersey Shore, California, and North Carolina.

Many families from our immediate area have been recipients of these travel experiences along with 821 families from PA, NJ, and Delaware.

The event promises a 3 course luncheon at the Radisson along with an exciting raffle with great prizes. The Keynote speaker is Suzanne Fisher Staples author of the award winning Under the Persimmon Tree.

Marci Schankweiler, the Crossing the Finish Line Founder/President and 2010 recipient of the National People Magazine/MLB Stars Among Us Award will also speak along with 2 local women who have received respite travel from Crossing the Finish Line.

Please support this great cause by attending the event, sponsoring the event, giving a prize for the raffle, or making a donation. For more information on the Chart Your Course Fundraiser visit ; email or call 570-498-2595.

In the alternative you can forward your request for sponsorship, donation, raffle prize, or your request for tickets to my attention at Foley, Cognetti, Comerford, Cimini & Cummins, 507 Linden Street, Suite 700, Scranton, PA 18503. Checks can be made out to "Crossing the Finish Line."

As over 300 people have been sent invitations to purchase tickets to this event, it is anticipated that this will be a well-attended event by members of the local community. A sponsorship of this event will therefore also turn out to be a worthwhile advertising effort in support of a great cause.

Thanks for your consideration of this request for your support.
