About Woman of the Year

To everyone: My nomination for 2010 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Woman of the Year” is the reason I started this blog, so much of my fundraising campaign information is still scattered about. Though the campaign is over, many selfless individuals involved themselves, friends, their businesses, and families in this effort to successfully raise $852,000+ for cancer research. In tribute to them — to you — and hope that the selfless giving does not end with the close of this campaign, I’ve gathered most of our campaign news on this page, not to mention the many posts and photographs on the main page! Enjoy!

                   

I’ve accepted my nomination for the 2010 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Woman of the Year competition!!

From April-June, 2010, I will be fundraising through events, bartending, and hosting letter-writing campaigns to reach my goal of $100,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Why I accepted: In October, I began fundraising for my friend’s younger brother to ease the financial burden of his chemotherapy treatments. The Man/Woman of the Year competition is well-organized, directly serves life-saving research initiatives, and provides a platform for participants to bring light to much smaller, yet equally deserving charitable organizations.

If you are ready to help, host, party, donate, and brainstorm on our TEAM, contact me: Tina.C.Jeon@gmail.com or reply to this post!

TINA JEON BIO: WOMAN OF THE YEAR NOMINEE

Originally from Enfield, CT, Tina is a 2008 graduate of Yale University. When her parents could not afford Christmas and birthday presents, they would say “your education is your gift”. She certainly took that to heart. During her time at Yale, Tina worked as a tour guide and Senior Interviewer at the Undergraduate Admissions Office. Academically, she developed an interest in tropical medicine and non-clinical epidemiology, excelling in graduate school courses and writing a thesis challenging popular beliefs on the eradication of yellow fever.

In her sophomore year, Tina founded the Yale Archery Team. This three-time All-American and All-Academic archer piqued her interest in the Latin American Healthcare system while competing as a member of Team USA at a World Ranking Archery Tournament in Venezuela (2007). After taking home 2 individual gold medals from the 2008 World Ranking Tournament in Puerto Rico, Tina moved to the Nation’s capital to work in the healthcare consulting arena.

Throughout her time in Washington, DC, she frequently volunteered at soup kitchens and mentoring programs. As work required her to travel more often, Tina began dedicating her weekends to hosting parties, bartending, and modeling, donating all proceeds to smaller local charities battling both child homelessness and abuse, and providing rehabilitation services. She also began fundraising for her friend’s younger brother, a relapsed Leukemia patient in need of chemotherapy treatments.

Tina graciously accepts the nomination to participate in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Woman of the Year competition and appreciates the opportunity to be a part of such a large and ambitious exercise in philanthropic collaboration. With her team, she hopes to create not only enjoyable events, but also an inspiring campaign and contribute everything possible to aid those affected by blood cancers.

Fun facts: In 2007, Glamour Magazine published “Facebook.com” as Tina’s “secret obsession”, though it actually is Tetris. Her favorite movies are “While You Were Sleeping” and “Kung Fu Panda”. At the gym, she listens to metromixes of Prince. At age 9, she performed at the Basilica of the National Shrine.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Skyler and Andrew, two brave Cancer survivors dedicating their time to this campaign so others might live.

JUST ONE WEEK LEFT TO REACH OUR $100K GOAL TO FIGHT BLOOD CANCER

—————————————————————————————————
We have a special twist to our typical Tuesday Bar Tab Bingo at 19th and we decided to dedicate this Tuesday in helping raise awareness and funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. My dear friend, Tina has pledged to raise 100K to help cure all blood cancers so come on out and help kick cancers butt! We will definitely be doing a few rounds of Bingo. One winner is just not enough. So with just a $5 charitable buy in, you get the chance to win a bottle of wine or two & hopefully you win an entire Bar Tab courtesy of 19th! So even if you have plans Tuesday make a quick stop by 19th before your final destination and let’s throw down for a CURE! Drink specials include: $3 Amstel light, Heineken & New Castle as well as $4 Chardonay and Svedka cocktails… Yummmmm : )

A little insight…

I understand there has been a tremendous amount of invitations being sent out for the current campaign to end all blood cancers. I just want to take this opportunity to let you all know that I care deeply for this cause and really any of the sort. You see, I lost my father this past September to cancer. Melanoma. So, it isn’t just about someone winning a title, it’s not just about trying to cure blood cancer, it’s an opportunity for everyone to come together and show support for friends and family and try to help Save the world from All cancers. It’s my wish that all of you can make it even for at least one round on Tuesday and hey, if not even $1 donation to this cause would just mean the World to me because I know that Every penny Counts!! You can do so at http://www.tinaontarget.wordpress.com

God bless, Etta
