Friends of Gavin Michael Bailey, who died in 2013 at the age of 1 from complications of Neurocutaneous Melanocytosis, are challenging the people of Nevus Outreach to raise $20,000 by the end of February 2014. Each dollar raised will be matched, up to a total of $20,000, resulting in a fund of $40,000. This money will be used to support ongoing Tissue Bank activities at Nevus Outreach.
Fundraising for the 2014 Conference
The Grassroots Fundraiser Campaign is officially underway! In conference years, money raised in the Grassroots Fundraiser Campaign goes to offset conference costs. Anyone can put on a grassroots fundraiser - it’s easy! Everything you need to register it, announce it and keep track of your donations and progress are available here.
Conference 2014 is projected to cost over $100,000. In order to keep the registration fee as low as possible we need YOUR help. Please consider holding any kind of fundraiser, for instance a garage sale, a birthday celebration with donations instead of gifts, or a charity meal at a local restaurant where a portion of the profits are donated. Any size fundraiser is welcomed!
Recently, Lauren Young raised $1,945 for Leo’s 9th Birthday Challenge, and Yoko Yoshioka raised $5,000 during her WDK Five O Fund Fundraiser. Visit nevus.org to see current fundraisers and to set up your own.
