With about two weeks until the new year, I would like to thank everyone again for a very successful 2013 golf outing. We will be starting to collect donations and sponsors soon to get ready for our 8th annual outing in 2014. Please email Courtney Van Auken at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on being able to donate or sponsor our event. We raised over $8000 in 2013 thanks to all our sponsors and attendees! Let’s aim to beat this amount in 2014.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND HAVE A GREAT NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Pancreatic cancer, one of the most difficult forms of cancer to diagnose, takes the lives of almost 30,000 men and women each year in the United States. Scientists do not know what exactly causes this disease and have yet to find a formative cure.
However, NaturalNews.com discloses:
“A group of scientists working at the Colorado University Cancer Center in Denver have released the results of a study in the journal Carcinogenesis, demonstrating how bitter melon juice restricts the ability of pancreatic cancer cells to metabolize glucose, thus cutting the cells’ energy source and eventually killing them.”
What’s better than a natural remedy to help prevent this vicious disease from spreading?! Although it is still being tested, it’s nice to know there are some solutions that may be able to help prevent more from losing their lives to pancreatic cancer.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, we’ve got quite a book! We’ve just added the photos tab. Check out photos from our 2013 Carol Van Auken Golf Outing by clicking here or the photos tab in the menu. Thanks everyone!
The turnout for this year’s Carol Van Auken Golf Outing blew us away! We set two event records:
- More than 170 community members came out to show support – the highest attendance to date
- This year’s auction had items valued at $30,000 – the most valued donations to date (thank you Courtney Van Auken!!)
None of this could have been done without the entire Van Auken family, friends, and community supporters. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!! We’ll be adding a photos tab soon. In the meantime, below are a few photos from the event and you can view the full photo album on Facebook here: http://on.fb.me/14hhQ2r
