1) As many of you know, our next event will be from June 2nd-June 9th in Cincinnati. To honor Robyn, we are partnering with Hoxworth Blood Center and holding a platelet/blood drive week. We ask all donors who plan on donating to please use the the PR number: PR-1465. Or you can also give them Robyn's name. This is so we will be able to track and thank everyone that donates in Robyn's memory and to help others in need. If you want more information or would like to make an appointment please contact Hoxworth Blood Center by calling: 513-451-0910 or go to their website at: http://www.hoxworth.org/
2) For those in Chicago, we have finalized the date for our next blood drive. Please plan on joining us on Saturday September 22nd from 9:00 AM-1:30 PM once again at the Japanese American Service Committee (4427 N. Clark Street). Our first drive was a huge success and we'd like this one to be even more successful and recruit as many possible future blood and platelet donors as we can.
3) On October 20th, the foundation will be participating in "Light the Night." Light The Night is an evening walk and fundraising event supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission to find cures for blood cancers. It is our communities' night to bring light to the darkness of cancer by celebrating those who are fighting the disease and to honor those we have lost. We have formed our own team and encourage those who are able to walk with us to please do so. The event will take place at Soldier Field - South Lot (1410 Museum Campus Drive, Chicago, IL) at 4:30 PM.

As always, we thank all of our friends, family, and donors for supporting us and helping us grow the foundation.
