Happy Monday, Friends! Do you have a super hero favorite?! On Wednesday last week, my family and I attended a SUPER fundraiser at Golf World in Middleton, MA. Over 200 people attended this event and raised thousands of dollars for the Dana Farber Cancer Institue/ The Jimmy Fund! This fundraiser is something that the Ninety Nine Restaurant hosts annually and it was so much fun to be apart of the event, capturing the heroes having fun! Each team had their own team name and were dressed in their best! I loved getting to see how creative the teams were with their outfit choices! One team dressed as Spider man, The Hulk, Superman and Wonder Woman. Well, Ethan is obsessed with Spider Man these days and he really thought this team had the real Spider Man on it! He chased ‘spidey’ down a good bit during the day and I loved seeing how excited her got every time he went near him! They won the best dressed award of the day and I have to agree with the judges on that one.. they looked awesome!
We love being apart of Team Lanzoni! It is amazing to see the final amount raised when the team completes their yearly fundraising at the Falmouth Road Race in August! Their efforts in raising money for cancer research is inspiring! PJ runs in the road race each year and works so hard running fundraisers and also, reaching out for donations on his Jimmy Fund page. We are so proud of all the hard work that gets put into hosting events like this and are thankful to be apart of something so amazing!
We were at the event all day, we got to enjoy meeting new people, seeing many we have already met, we walked around the farm area and saw the animals, and got ice cream! I was taking photos while wearing Henry most of the time and Ethan had so much fun golfing for the first time! We are so excited to have the weekend in Falmouth this coming August to cheer on all the runners and celebrate this amazing team! They all really are so amazing!
A little bit about Team Lanzoni…..
“Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has supported the fight against cancer in children and adults at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, helping to raise the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world. In 2006, the Ninety Nine lost David Lanzoni to a courageous battle with cancer. He was a friend, a mentor and a colleague. Shortly after he passed, one of our Operations Directors ran the Falmouth Road Race in David’s memory. With this effort, he raised $5,000 for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. From there, Team Lanzoni was born. Team Lanzoni (https://www.facebook.com/Team-Lanzoni-195301487166598/timeline/) quickly gained enthusiasm at the Ninety Nine, and grew from a one-person team to an organization with dozens of members in two short years. Now, Team Lanzoni is a company-wide initiative. Fund raising efforts have expanded beyond The Falmouth Road Race to The Pan Mass Challenge, mini-golf tournaments, bake sales, opportunity drawings and more, with all proceeds benefiting The Jimmy Fund and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In 2017, Team Lanzoni and the Ninety Nine Restaurants raised over $530,000 with the help and generosity of Ninety Nine’s caring guests. That’s over $3.5 million in the last nine years!” – The Ninety Nine Restaurant
