Our family and friends raise funds and participate in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk in memory of Katelyn Joyce– an amazing daughter, sister and friend who sadly lost her battle with leukemia on August 20, 2011.
We coordinate several fundraising events throughout the year. Those of you who knew Katelyn, know that theme parties and zombie makeup were always a great idea and a Zombie Prom seems like a natural way to keep that spirit going. For those of you who didn’t get opportunity to meet her (I am not sure that there are any people in the state she wasn’t friend with though…) our first ever Zombie Prom May 25th, 2013 is great way to join in and find out why everyone loved being Katelyn’s Friend. We also host the Katelyn M. Joyce Memorial Golf Outing annually at Wolf Creek Golf Course in September, a great day to hang out, have fun, wear crazy socks and support an important cause. We also do several smaller events throughout the year and are open to any new ideas. Our team also accepts direct donations both online and through team members. We are giving local businesses the opportunity to help us reach our goal while gaining valuable exposure and good will from the community by becoming an event sponsor! In return for your generosity, sponsorship packages include marketing and promotion at our events, plus we will be promoting and thanking sponsors online throughout the fundraising season.
We hope you’ll agree with us that this cause is worth your support. You can donate directly to our team online by visiting http://pages.lightthenight.org/il/ChicagoL14/YesIamaKatelynFriend Or by participating in one of our great events! If you would like to sponsor an event, have any questions, or would like to join us in the Walk please feel free to contact us anytime.
Thank you for helping save lives.
Team Yes! I am a Katelyn Friend!
