Together we raised over $13K!!

The donations have been tallied and I'm thrilled to report that we raised $13,211.04 in support of the Hopi Cancer Assistance Fund (HCAF).  This includes individual, tribal, and corporate donations, as well as donations received during the Kickoff event hosted by Hopi Cancer Support Services.  I want to offer my deepest thanks of appreciation to everyone who supported this fundraising effort. In addition to the more than 300 donors who generously gave in support of this worthy cause, the success of the fundraiser would not have been possible without help of people working behind the scenes to promote the event, manage donations, and provide technical and administrative support. Special thanks to Gloria Lomaheftewa, Coordinator for the HCAF for her work providing financial assistance and emotional support to Hopi cancer patients and their families. I also want to thank Monica Nuvamsa, Executive Director of the Hopi Foundation for seeing the potential of the fundraiser and lending the support of her organization and amazing staff. As a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, the Hopi Foundation supports creative collaborations that promote community capacity building and self-sufficiency. Working in partnership with the Hopi Foundation and Hopi Cancer Assistance Fund is an example of what can be achieved when people can some together in collaboration and support of a common cause.
