Spare Cells Saves Lives Networking Fundraiser
Spend a wonderful evening with Grammy Award winning singer Chrisette Michele as she shares her thoughts and unique view of the world on various health disparities that affect our community. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to bid on hand-made jewelry, silent auction, a change to win a destination trip of your choice, as well as many other quality items the New York City community has to offer.
Senator Kristen Gillibrand, Senator David Carlucci, City Councilman Andy King, Michael Snolnik, Debra Pucci, MCNY and Sudler & Hennessey.
While you are enjoying this wonderful evening, you are helping to build an exciting community agency. Preserve Our Legacy has a vision. By addressing Bone Marrow & Umbilical Cord Blood Awareness issues that impact our community, all of our lives are improved. Ignorance, lack of resources and disconnection with community are key factors in Bone Marrow & Umbilical Cord Blood Awareness. You can help build Preserve Our Legacy and improve the lives of so many community members and families.
Preserve Our Legacy, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, whose mission is to educate individuals, especially those from various ethnic groups, about the benefits of stem cells through treatment options provided via peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC), bone marrow and umbilical cord blood donations. We will provide educational resources needed to focus on early detection, which can lead to prompt treatment, which can improve the chances of a productive life and beneficial, healthy outcome. In 2010, Preserve Our Legacy launched the first educational program of its kind, P.O.L. Umbilical Cord Blood Program at Harlem Hospital. The organization also spearheaded NJ legislation - Jaden’s Law to increase awareness about PBSC and bone marrow donation within various ethnic communities that was signed by New Jersey Governor Christie on August 25, 2012. In 2011, New York Governor Cuomo and Assemblyman Keith L.T. Wright established May 3 as “Bone Marrow & Cord Blood Awareness Day”, for New York State. The organization’s goal is to get their legislation A06582/S2115 – Jaden’s Law passed in New York State.
Well over 200 guests invited to attend. Thousands more will see our announcements through social media and our program guides; many others will participate through our web site and via the mail.
We look forward to seeing you at our event. Thank you for your purchase.
