Dear Elizabeth Neighbors,

I want to invite you to a special new fundraiser called Spell the End to Cancer.  Please save the evening of Sat., Nov. 6 to join us for an evening of Scrabble, other word games, good company and good food to benefit Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C). This event was conceived when we lost our neighbor and friend Ann Brewster Jones to pancreatic cancer this February, and a group of us decided to take action – to honor her memory, and to make a real contribution to groundbreaking research that will help end this terrible disease as quickly as possible.

SU2C supports a new model for funding research into all types of cancer. Their unique funding model encourages innovation by funding multi-institutional, collaborative groups of scientists working together instead of in competition.

We’ll have both social and competitive Scrabble, other games, and prizes – some for winning a game, and some as part of a door prize drawing. The cost is $25 per person, which will go directly to Stand Up to Cancer. Donate now directly to our team or pay at the door.

Please respond to to let us know if you plan to attend. In your e-mail, let us know how many are in your party, and whether you plan to play competitive Scrabble, social Scrabble, other games or just hang out. You are welcome to adjust your plans once you arrive.
