Spielman Fund eNews October 2013

Dear Friend,

The Spielman Funds have reached over $13 MILLION!

This is an incredible number we have achieved and it is thanks to all of you. But what is even more impressive than the amount of money raised is how the money is being used — 100 percent of your gift goes directly to support the Fund’s efforts. We hope you’ll join us at the many events this October to celebrate this achievement and continue your support of Stefanie’s mission.

BREAST CAncer Awareness Month 2013

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and several events and promotions have been planned throughout the community this year, many of which benefit the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research at the OSUCCC – James. Listed below are some of the activities and events that are scheduled. And to honor the spirit of this month, take a minute to remind the women in your life to schedule their annual James mammogram. Call 800-240-4477.

Seeds for hope
Steyer Seeds, founded in 1985, is in the business of selling and promoting seed to farmers across the Midwestern states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Michigan. We are proud to be partnering with Steyer Seeds who is making a $1-$3 donation, for purchases of any Steyer soybean variety that is treated pink for breast cancer awareness. 100% of the donation will go to the Spielman Fund. The pink seed campaign from Steyer Seeds will run through May 2014. For more information, visit steyerseeds.com.

Give cancer the boot
Durango, a division of Rocky Brands, Inc., is promoting breast cancer awareness by donating $2 per pair sold of its Pink Ribbon western boot, up to $35,000 annually, to the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Patient Assistance.

“The effects of breast cancer are felt all over the world but we are especially conscious of the Durango associates and consumers close to home who are affected,” said Kristin Dille, Durango Marketing Manager. “The opportunity to partner with the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Patient Assistance allows us to lend our support to patients and their families as they fight to give cancer the boot.”

To purchase the boot and support the Fund, visit durangoboot.com.

A fashion STATEMENT THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
We are excited to announce our partnership with soHza, an online jewelry retailer where you can find beautiful handcrafted jewelry made by female artisans from around the world, particularly in areas where survival is a daily struggle. The jewelry is made from local hardwoods, beads and other materials— some is even made from recycled bullet casings melted down and given new life. With this partnership, we are able to connect women here with stories of survival by women from around the world. When you purchase a piece of soHza jewelry from the “Stefanie Spielman Fund Collection” at sohza.com, soHza will give a portion of the sale back to the Fund, helping women here and all over the world. To make a purchase, visit www.sohza.com/shop/stefanie-spielman-fund.

Don’t forget to buy your pink ribbon for a dollar at your local Kroger store. In addition, be on the lookout for pink tag items throughout the store, all to support the Spielman Fund.
