On May 21, 2011 join us to “Kick Cancer Overboard” and cruise to Bermuda aboard Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas. The brain child of Ted Friedli of Excel Travel, the purpose and goal of Kick Cancer Overboard is to fill a cruise ship with cancer fighters, survivors and their friends, family and supporters to celebrate life! The cruise leaves from Cape Liberty, NJ and packages start as low as $525 per person for 5 nights (plus taxes and port charges) includes all meals, activities, entertainment and special events.
There will be a fundraiser on Tuesday, October 19th at Branches Catering in West Long Branch. The goal in raising money is to be able to send cancer affected families on the cruise for FREE that may not otherwise be able to go. There are still a few sponsorship opportunities available for the event. The previous party was so well attended by all sorts of networking groups including the local Chambers, MODC, Rotary, LeTip, BNI, it’s a great opportunity for you and your business to gain exposure. If you would like take advantage of this chance to connect with local business people and support a great cause, sponsorships start at $275 please contact Ted at 800.392.3588 or email.
I went to the last fundraiser and it was amazing. There was an expo of the sponsoring businesses where you could walk around and talk to people, network with other business people in a more casual atmosphere, eat great food, have drinks and fun. Branches Catering always does a fabulous job. You can view the video from the last event here on You Tube.
You can look forward Oktoberfest Fun including a German Oompah Band, Cash Bar with German Beer and Wine tasting, premiere of the new Kick Cancer Overboard Video, business expo, giveaways and free t-shirts for everyone signed up for the cruise. Brookdale Radio New 12 and Mrs. New Jersey 2009 will be present.
We are expecting a full house, so please RSVP ASAP by email or by calling 800.392.3588. The cost is $25 per person and is payable by cash or check. I hope to see you there. If you have any questions about Kick Cancer Overboard, feel free to leave them in the comments and I will answer or find an answer for you.
Update: 10:00pm October 11, 2010
I just got an email from Ted Friedli with an update on sponsorships and event details:
We picked the first four recipients of the FREE cruise, and might pick two more. Wait until you hear their stories…Truly inspiring! Yes, we do have about 7 sponsorships left at this time. The $275 donation includes two tickets and a listing on the cards at the event. Much to our surprise we don’t yet have a realtor, financial planner, insurance broker, chiropractor, mortgage broker or HOTEL…and at this stage can promise exclusivity!
