Hello JAMRs! The June JAMR crew hopes that each of you and your families had an amazing holiday season and are looking forward to 2017 as much as we are. Although the end of each year is very busy for everyone, the Board of Directors has continued to work hard to get everything prepared for our event on June 10, 2017. Since our last board meeting of 2016 we have been very excited to share some news with all of you. The first bit of news we must share is that we have added several new sponsors to our JAMR sponsorship tiers. Please go to the link above titled Help Out or Sponsor and browse through each of our sponsorship tiers to see who has been added. Without each of these amazing sponsors and their contributions to help ensure a successful event for 2017 we would not be able to help raise awareness for Sarcoidosis research or contribute to our local community. We would like to send a huge thank you to each one of our sponsors for making this whole event a possibility year after year.
The next exciting announcement is that the June JAMR Board of Directors has voted to nominate a 3rd recipient of funds raised during the 2017 JAMR event. In addition to the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research and Faith Church, this year we plan on donating a portion of our proceeds to Arr-Mac Water Response Team in light of their high demand and fast response in the aftermath and flooding associated with Hurricane Matthew. The June JAMR is proud to be able to help each of these organizations and will be sharing more information about some of the ways you can help us with this below and will continue to share more as we get closer to the 2017 event.
The final bit of news we want to share at this time is information about our new fundraising and prize-winning opportunities for 2017. In addition to selling 50/50 raffle tickets, JAMR bracelets, and holding a silent auction the day of the event, this year the June JAMR will feature a big-ticket raffle! Tickets for the June JAMR 2017 Prize Raffle will be $10 and will offer 3 chances to win great prizes. The prizes will be awarded at the event on June 10, 2017 but you do not need to be present to win.
