SHARE greatly appreciates Ivy Mix and Lynnette Marrero and the rest of the Speed Rack team for all of their work raising funds for SHARE this year. We first met Ivy and Lynnette last year when we learned about Speed Rack's fantastic fundraising work on behalf of breast cancer research, education, and prevention. We were so impressed that we honored Speed Rack as an "Outstanding Organization Making a Difference" at our Ninth Annual A Second Helping of Life benefit in 2012.
SHARE is so grateful to be the primary beneficiary of Speed Rack's work this year. Speed Rack has raised $45,000 so far for SHARE!
"We chose to work with SHARE this year as one of our recipients for donations because SHARE is an organization that mirrors our goals. Women helping and supporting women. There are few charities that deal with breast cancer from this point of view. The fact that survivors make themselves available to help other women during such an intense and frightening moment in their lives is amazing," says Lynnette.
Ivy adds, "Lynnette and I chose to work with SHARE because they share our commitment to a female support group. Speed Rack creates a platform for women in the bartending industry and acts as a support to make one's career; I feel that SHARE's commitment to supporting and helping echoes our own mission. We want to make sure women in need get the attention they need. SHARE provides that."
