Happy New Years a little late! I just wanted to update you on a couple of things. Nicole Huau, who is the Regional Development Director for the Atlantic Coast Region for ALSAC, invited me to lunch on the 28th of January. I hope to gain more information on how we can help St Jude's while continuing our good relationship with ALSAC in Florida. If you have any questions, ideas or concerns, please let me know so I can pass them on to her. At the Mid-Year and the board meeting it was mentioned that there were problems with the Orlando Walk and I'd like to pass that information on to her if she's not already aware.
Secondly, I received some information from MacKeigan Wuest, the Headquarters Philanthropic Coordinator. They would like everyone to sign up for the St. Jude's Volunteer Management System. Members will get their own personalized ESA volunteer profile page. It will also track your volunteer hours for ALSA/St. Jude events. Some regions offer priority scheduling for ESA members who would like to volunteer. In the future, all ALSAC/St. Jude events will be staffed through this portal. Not every region is using it yet but they will be required to use it very soon. Best of all if you sign up by February 15th. you will have a chance to win cool ESA and St. Jude logo prizes! As of now, we only have 8 people signed up. The website is https://volunteer.stjude.org. Be sure to list ESA as your organization when you register.
As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thanks for everything you do!

I received this email from Dominos Pizza who are supporting St. Jude's. If you are planning on ordering any pizzas for the holidays, think of this offer. I know it's only $1.00 donated but every bit helps. Make sure your local Dominos is supporting this. I received this from mine in Clearwater.
Happy Holidays to everyone!

I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for the upcoming holidays. We just need some cooler weather! I do have the latest Florida total for St. Jude which was updated today. Our grand total is $4,793.75. The St. Jude Walk/Run monies is not included in this total yet. I check this every month to make sure that any checks I send in are accounted for. Just let me know if you want to make sure your donations are counted.
I'm also attaching the completed event form for any event benefitting St. Jude. If this is a NON-St. Jude/ALSAC event (meaning you had no help from St. Jude,) send all monies to the ESA for St. Jude Office at 363 West Drake Road, Fort Collins, CO 80526 along with the event form. You can also send to me and I will make sure it gets there. The money raised for the walk/run and marathon that is noted through an individual's fundraising page does get reported to headquarters so you don't need to send a form. If you want to get credit for volunteering at the St. Jude/ALSAC events, the form needs to be filled out online on headquarters website.
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask me. If I'm not sure, I will find out the answer from headquarters.
Since opening 50 years ago, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children.
St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life.
