American Cocktail Society!!
Team American Cocktail Society was founded in 2009. A group of 8 women decided to begin fundraising for a great cause. Amy Tuten had been the Media Chair for the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event that is held every October, and she decided to spearhead this team! We decided it would be fun to have a team to raise money for this event and walk together in October. Deciding on a team name was easy - we wanted to have fun and show support for American Cancer Society - from there the American Cocktail Society was born!
Since then, it has just gotten bigger and better... In 2009 we were the top fundraising team for Making Strides in Sarasota-Manatee, bringing in $14,228.88 then in 2010 we beat our personal goal and were still third in the ranking...that year was $19,110.97. Our third year was a huge success...2011 was amazing - we were again the Gold Striders - top in Sarasota-Manatee, raising $27,134.93 bringing our total raised in three years to over $60,000! Our team works with other teams to raise money as well....starting 2 years ago, we partnered with Legal Eagles, for a huge bachelor auction, and will do it again this September! One of our teammates battled brain cancer - and won! She has a team raising money for American Cancer Society Relay for Life, many of our teammates participate in as well, and we always donate the proceeds from one of our cocktail parties to Relay for Life to honor Sheryl. Our teammates all are hard-working, busy people who take time out to help this worthy cause...we hope you will join us every step of the way to knock out cancer!
Get ready for a great year in 2012 - we have all the dates planned for the event throughout the year leading up the walk on October 20th, 2012.
