Macy’s “Glamorama” for Good Cause

August 2nd, 2013

MACYS “GLAMORAMA”  is tonight Aug 2nd at the State Theater, in downtown Minneapolis.

The 22nd annual fashion extravaganza stars Sheryl Crow, with a performance by Cirque du Soleil, benefiting Children’s Cancer Research Fund ®.    My wife, Lindsay is a past chair for this amazing event to help support childhood cancer research.  Join us tonight!

CCRF is a national nonprofit 501 (c)3 that supports the pioneering efforts at the University of Minnesota in research related to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of childhood cancers.

In 1979, 13-year old Katie Hageboeck, from Wayzata, was nearing the end of her 16-month battle with leukemia. Knowing she was losing her battle, she asked that the money she had been saving for a 10-speed bicycle be donated to a little-known fund for the University of Minnesota called Children’s Cancer Research Fund.  Her dream was for a cure to be found so that kids who followed her would survive.   Our friends the Hageboecks have raised awareness and turned the fledgling fund into a national non-profit, with hundreds of thousands of individual donors, along with corporate and foundation partners, who have given nearly $80 million to pediatric hematology/oncology and blood and marrow transplantation physicians/researchers at the University of Minnesota.
