Students of the Year Nashville
Team Tiger Stripes has been working diligently to reach our goals-we are getting closer but need your help!
We have baked 1300 cookies (dough generously donated by Christie Cookies) and we have been selling cookies at Ensworth Sporting Events!
Look for our table this week: Tuesday, Boy's Varsity Basketball State Tournament at 6:30 and Friday, Girl's Varsity State Tournament
We are selling cookies online as well: teamtigerstripes.wixsite.com
EHS Students: there is a pickup box in the Cafe for your Cookie Orders. Orders placed will be delivered the next morning to the Cafe
Nashville Community: we will deliver orders of 12 or more cookies to you directly!
We are preparing for TIGER FESTIVAL on Sunday, February 24th from 3:00-6:00PM at Cabana (1910 Belcourt Avenue). This is an all-ages event with the House Band from School of Rock performing, as well as many of the amazing musicians Ensworth High School has to offer!
We will also have some entertaining games, and the opportunities to win gift cards and prizes!
Tickets are $10 per person with ALL proceeds going to our fight against Cancer!
Tickets are available for purchase at: teamtigerstripes.wixsite.com
They will be available at the door, but we would LOVE to know that you are coming!
I am honored to participate in the 2019 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am proud to be raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student(s) of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.
Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.
We really are changing the face of blood cancer!
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.
Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
