Waiting on a Cure Sponsorship Opportunities Available

(July 23, 2012) - Sponsorship packages are now available for the 11th Annual Waiting on a Cure luncheon that will be held at the Savannah Marriott Riverfront on Friday, November 16. Corporate sponsorship packages are available from $1,500 to $10,000. Each sponsor package includes a table for 10, recognition at the event, and an ad in the event program. Businesses can also be a part of this event by donating a gift to be auctioned or purchasing an ad in the event program.

Waiting on a Cure is a highly anticipated annual fundraiser that benefits the Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute (ACI) at Memorial University Medical Center. Table hosts purchase a table for 10 and invite nine of their friends and colleagues to enjoy lunch with them. The table hosts dress in costumes based on a theme and serve their guests throughout the meal. The guests then "tip" their host at the end of the meal.

The 2012 event is being presented by South University and ApartmentSavannah.com. This year's theme is "I Spy a Cure." The event chair event is Inge Moore and the honorary chair is Elizabeth Anderson. This year's honored patient is breast cancer survivor Donna South.

Proceeds from this year's event will be used to purchase new surgery technology called the SPY Elite System.
