Komen OC’s Top 10- Thank You Team ADP

Many of us who stay up late, either every night or just every once in a while, get a smile out of David Letterman’s Late Show “Top 10 List” skits. Well, Komen OC decided to put together its own “Top 10 List” as a thank you to one of our top fundraising teams for the 2012 Susan G. Komen Orange County Race for the Cure campaign. Team ADP, comprised of 171 team members, raised $88,185 to help serve women and men save lives!

Now, imagine a drum roll performed by an orchestra drummer as you read these in reverse countdown order: the TOP TEN ways ADP’s fundraising dollars (and yours) are helping women and men right here in Orange County.

Thank you for all your support!

 It is our first blog post of 2013 and we thought that there was no better way to start off the new year then to send out a great big thank you to all our donors,  friends and volunteers who supported us throughout 2012.

So, THANK YOU!

With support from donors in our two year-end campaigns, the 3200 Mammogram Challenge and Annual Year-end Appeal, Komen Orange County netted a 53 percent increase in year-end donations over last year!

A new element this year to our annual year-end appeal was a jingle featuring 13 local celebrities and public figures who sang a unique tune, “Funding Orange County Mammograms,” to the beat of the holiday classic, “Winter Wonderland.” The jingle was posted to YouTube and has reached more than 2,000 views and counting!   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmFKsrz-2j8

In our 3200 Mammogram Challenge, we worked closely with key supporters to launch a challenge asking people to donate one or more mammograms to help underserved and uninsured women in the community. The challenge will continue through the end of March, so there is still time to get involved and help us reach this goal as well. http://bit.ly/145eQXa

Thank you again! We are grateful for all of the support from our community.
