It is time to start looking for that special 2013 calendar, whether you’re looking for that perfect gift or for your own personal use, the Marco Island Moms Against Cancer calendar is ready for purchase. The calendar features a different Marco mom each month and the best part is 100% of the proceeds go to the local branch of the American Cancer Society.
We need to extend a sincere note of thanks to all of the businesses that assisted with the calendar. Among them, Peter Berec, professional photographer, Bill Young for his classic cars, Progressive Auto, and Georgie’s and the Shoe Boutique, as well as Karen and Jessica from South Beach Hair stand out. These and many more deserve a special mention for their assistance with getting the moms prepared and supporting the calendar. A phone directory in the back of the calendar lists over 40 local businesses that contributed to this effort in some way. A thank you page to local philanthropists like Michelle Jordan from Upon a Star Foundation, Karen and Bill Young and Kellie Burns, local NBC news anchor who each supported this inaugural effort. Be sure to thank them!
Each calendar purchased will help the American Cancer Society with their many education initiatives and support programs for cancer patients and caregivers. Calendars are available at the Marriott Gift Shop, Progressive Auto, the Snook Inn, Fred Kramer Law Firm, Realty Executives of Marco Island, South Beach Hair at the Marriott and Marco Walk, Ricks Island Salon, Obsession Boutique, Georgie’s and the Shoe Resort, the Crazy Flamingo, CJ’s on the Bay and the local American Cancer Society office.
