Board Spotlight – Patty Grimes

CURE Childhood Cancer is honored to have a diverse and well-connected Board of Directors and we would like our community to get to know them. In this spotlight series we will highlight a board member and share why he or she is dedicated to CURE.

Patty Grimes has been a CURE Board Member for two years and is the Charity Liason for the Country Club of The South.

“I became aware of CURE through our neighborhood Charity Guild. I thought it was a wonderful organization with a great mission, but it did not become personal for me until a close family friend lost his vivacious and beautiful teenage daughter, Megan, to osteosarcoma after a three year battle. As I watched the cancer wreak havoc on her body, I knew I had to do something to help find a cure. I like the fact that CURE not only provides family support for childhood cancer patients, but also funds significant research to find less toxic treatments which will lead to a cure. It is a privilege to be a CURE Board Member in honor of those who have suffered from these dreadful diseases.”

The Glavine Experience.

What would you give to play ball with former Atlanta Braves pitcher Tom Glavine?

One very lucky little league baseball team will have the chance to hold a practice at the Country Club of the South home of future Hall of Fame pitcher, Tom Glavine (the Glavines have a regulation size infield in their backyard!), and receive coaching instruction from Tom.

CURE Childhood Cancer is currently accepting silent bids on this once in a lifetime experience via email to info@curechildhoodcancer.org up until 6:00 pm on September 22, 2010. This is a great opportunity for little league team members to ban together, make a team bid, and support children with cancer at the same time.

The Glavine’s have generously put together “The Glavine Experience” as an opportunity to raise money for the “A Tribute to our Quiet Heroes” luncheon that Tom’s wife, Chris Glavine started and hosts each year. Quiet Heroes benefits CURE Childhood Cancer, and will be held on September 25, 2010

Every Friday until the luncheon, we will publish the high bid on Facebook, Twitter and CURE’s blog.  Guests attending the luncheon will have the opportunity to make final bids on the “Glavine Experience.” The highest bidder, whether present or not, will win this experience.  Bidding is currently at $1,000.
