20% of proceeds will be donated to Pancreatic Cancer Action Network
Miss Rhode Island USA 2016 Road to Miss USA Fundraiser
I invite you to save the date and join us for my fundraiser for Miss USA, while raising funds and awareness for an important cause in my heart.
The best part of this event is that I have teamed up with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to raise awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer research. Twenty percent of donations made on March 20 towards my journey to Miss USA will be donated to the national Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
Did you know that in 2016 pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death, with a five-year relative survival rate of just 8%? Pancreatic cancer has the lowest five-year relative survival rate of any major cancer.
Since losing my father to bile duct cancer (very similar to pancreatic cancer) in 2008, I have supported cancer awareness on my own and I’m excited to promote the importance of this scary illness with my title as Miss Rhode Island USA 2016.
If you or local organizations you are affiliated with are interested in donating food, a raffle prize or silent auction item for my fundraiser, please know it would greatly be appreciated.
If you are unable to join us, please consider being a Miss RI USA Super Supporter and making a donation anyway. Any donation is appreciated!
Tickets will be $25 in advance or at the door and include light appetizers.
Cash or checks only on the night of the fundraiser.
