I was so saddened to read this morning that Marcy Scott has been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Before moving on to become the current Marketing and PR Director at Atlanta Motor Speedway, she worked for Scott Wimmer at Bill Davis Racing, and she always has been so friendly, and such a joy to talk with!
A benefit will be held in her honor on August 8th and the organizers are seeking donations for the event.In addition to her daily responsibilities, Ms. Scott meticulously organizes media operations for two NASCAR races each season.
“Think Pink” is an event planned for Saturday, August 8th at Opera in Midtown Atlanta from 7:00pm-10:00pm. They will have a raffle, a “mini” fashion show for the best pink outfits, pink cocktails and pink hors d’oeuvres.The biggest portion of the fundraising efforts will be the silent auction.
They are currently seeking donations in that regard. For example, signed memorabilia would be a great auction item. The deadline for submitting auction items is Monday, August 3rd, 2009.This would be a great opportunity to give your organization exposure and help to raise money for a very worthy cause. They would like to make it clear that they are first raising money to help Ms. Scott offset her out-of-pocket medical expenses and any amount over and above that she is donating to a cancer-oriented non-profit organization.Please contact them with any questions or concerns you might have or if you would like invitations sent to your organizations.
Contact event organizers Corey Anderson or Michelle Dauble through their event email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
