The O'Connells Take Back St. Patrick's Day AGAIN!
a Fundraiser for Childhood Cancer Immunotherapy Research
Join us for a night of wicked Irish fun while we raise much-needed funds to accelerate immunotherapy research for childhood cancer. Your $95 ticket to the party includes beer, wine, dinner, a delectable dessert buffet and a DJ to get your Irish jig on. There will also be games to play to win fun prizes.
Saturday, October 3 - 5:30pm
Our Jane was diagnosed with stage IV kidney cancer (Wilms tumor) on St. Patrick's Day 2017. One of our favorite holidays is one of many things cancer took from us. Last year, we fought back with a vengeance and reclaimed St. Patrick's Day with friends old and new. The Corona Virus derailed our March plans, but we're ready for the MOST EPIC October St. Patrick's Day celebration Seattle has EVER seen! We're going to whoop it up, laugh, cry and dance while we put childhood cancer on notice.
Inglewood Golf Club 6505 Inglewood Road NE, Kenmore, WA 98028
We're going back to where it all started, the awesome Club where we held our wedding reception. We look forward to making more great memories there with you!
(1) We've seen the horrors of chemotherapy and radiation on a child first hand. NO child should have to go through this brutal, toxic treatment that will leave them with serious -- even fatal -- chronic health challenges. Our sweet Jane had no choice but to endure this treatment and its consequences, but for the 1 in 285 kids who will be diagnosed with cancer before they turn 20, we MUST find a better way. That way is immunotherapy.
(2) Cancer kills more children than all other diseases combined. Yet pharmaceutical companies don't invest in cures for childhood cancers because there aren't enough sick kids to make it profitable. So kids with cancer need lemonade stands, soccer scarf sales, fun runs.... They need US.
(3) Because we're the O'Connells, dammit.
Everyone! (Adults, that is.)
Bring your friends! Bring your family! It's going to be a fun party! If you don't know the O'Connells, chances are you know another family touched by childhood cancer. Fight back with us in their honor.
Wear your greenest of green! Green tutu and knee socks? Yes! Emerald green sequin gown? Of course! Sounders Rave Green jersey? Sure! Did you win the Masters and want to wear your green blazer? You'll fit right in!
