Thank you for posting! I know of no scheduled activites for Oct 15th in LA. However, many members have had small events with family and friends to raise money for PF. Bunko parties and garage sales have been successful in the past. One state group just had a meet-and-greet at their local zoo. These local activites are great for raising money and awareness.
BTW, I am hosting a golf tournament in Phoenix on Friday, Oct. 14th. We would love to register more golfers and more hole sponsorships....
Going on to bigger events...
-In November, our national fundraiser, Saving Grace: A Night of Hope will take place in Minnesota. Jaime Nolan is the coordinator for this inaugural event. Jaime is securing national sponsors and items for the silent auction. If you know of a company that would like to donate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
-The second annual Preeclampsia Foundation Walk-A-Thon will take place in cities across the country on May 13, 2006. Coordinators in each city volunteer to organize at their site. (There is a separate WAT section on the forum.)
-Our first Schwan's fundraiser begins on Oct 8th. Everyone is asked to participate, and please ask friends and family to participate as well. More info is on this fundraising forum.
-Our 'Get The Word Out Campaign' is on-going and we now have 100,000 brochures available for distribution. Do you know a doctor's office that would like to offer preeclampsia brochures? Carol Hamilton is our national coordinator for this on-going campaign.
That brings you up-to-date on our national activities! As you can see, there are many ways to support awareness and fundraising. Every effort means a lot! Thank you again for your interest.
