Thank You Note – National Football Foundation

Mason-Moran_Danny White AwardKevin,

Thank you again for sponsoring the Danny White Quarterback Award for the 23rd Annual Champions Luncheon last month at the Hilton Scottsdale Resort.

The recipient was Mason Moran of Chandler High School and presented by Jack Lengyel in Danny’s absence.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated as we inspire our youth to compete in the classroom as well on the gridiron and assume leadership roles at their high school and future college campuses.

Our new Executive Director, Mark Weiss, will be reaching out to you shortly so that we may present you with the traditional Football. I was able to use your ad from the Spring banquet in the luncheon program by doing some creative photoshop techniques.

Wishing you well as we move into the 2016 year and hope to see you soon. Be sure to check out the website at aznff.org.

Best always,

Janie Riddle,
President, Valley of the Sun Chapter

Helping to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer


National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) – Valley of the Sun Chapter’s 7th Annual run/walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer® takes place Sunday, December 6, 2015 at the north soccer field area of Tempe Kiwanis Park.

Last year over $70,000 was raised to help in the fight to end ovarian cancer.  This year they want to raise $80,000 to help improve survival rates and the quality of life of the more than 20,000 women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year.

All monetary contributions collected for the event will directly benefit NOCC’s local and national ovarian cancer awareness campaigns and educational programs.

Ovarian Cancer – The Silent Killer

Early detection is key in helping fight ovarian cancer. If caught early enough, the survival rate is at 90%. Lerner and Rowe is pleased to help NOCC – Valley of the Sun Chapter’s efforts to raise funds to share the message about the importance of early detection and the many supportive services the chapter offers.

For more details about the annual walk/run and the coalition, please contact NOCC – Valley of the Sun Chapter at [email protected] or by calling 480-659-5520.
