BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If you believe a FondueRaiser sounds like a yummy way to raise money, you are right. Boca Raton Regional Hospital just gave us a head's up to the upcoming FondueRaiser to benefit area cancer programs.
According to the hospital:
As part of the Greater Boca Raton’s Chamber of Commerce Boca Festival Days, First Citizens Bank will partner with Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Lynn Cancer Institute to promote the Institute’s newly established League of Ribbons.
The goal of the “FondueRaiser” for the League of Ribbons will be to welcome and encourage members of our community to become aware of and involved in the League of Ribbons. The proceeds from the “FondueRaiser” will go specifically to the League of Ribbons, which will benefit patients at the Lynn Cancer Institute through a variety of programs, including a Patient Resource Fund for patients in need of financial assistance during cancer treatment, education, and other areas of support. All of these efforts will directly benefit cancer patients in our community.
The “FondueRaiser” will be held at the Melting Pot on Tuesday, August 7th from 4:30-10pm at 5455 N. Federal Highway in Boca Raton. Drop by for fondue, cocktails or a glass of wine. Funds raised will support local cancer patients directly. Reservations are recommended by calling 561-997-7472 or visit us online at meltingpot.com/boca-raton. Please mention “Dip for LCI” when making your reservations. The more you sip and dip, the more money will be raised for the League of Ribbons.
THE MELTING POT HAS GENEROUSLY AGREED TO DONATE THIRTY PERCENT OF ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS EVENT TO THE LYNN CANCER INSTITUTE’S “LEAGUE OF RIBBONS.”
The League of Ribbons was created to bring together the talent, heart and dedication of people who want to support the Lynn Cancer Institute, its mission and its patients. Through the League of Ribbons, the Lynn Cancer Institute welcomes the participation and energy of the entire community including cancer survivors, family members of the patients, physicians, staff, family of staff and residents of our region. The League is an advocate for the Lynn Cancer Institute and serves to support enhanced patient services and to improve the lives of cancer patients.
The Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute is one of the largest cancer centers in South Florida and treats more than 3,000 cancer patients each year. A unique approach at the Lynn Cancer Institute is the Multimodality Care whereby each multimodality team is comprised of physicians and healthcare professionals who specialize in a specific site of cancer. The team is able to develop standards of care for the specific disease site it treats, which simplifies the entire process for the patient – from diagnosis and treatment to wellness and survivorship programs that allow the patient to focus on recovery. The Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute was built on the principle that the best cancer care requires united, single-minded efforts of physicians, staff, patients and their families.
