I am writing you today in regards to the Birmingham Bombshell’s fundraising efforts for the Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation, which is a (501 c 3) headquartered in Birmingham. The Birmingham Bombshells, a group here in Birmingham which hosted the “A picture of Health” gala event last summer and the 2010 Birmingham Bombshells calendar is currently recruiting donations to help with the 2010 gala event and the 2011 calendar. As a nominee bombshell, I am fundraising to be possibly featured in Birmingham Bombshells 2011 calendar, but more importantly, I'm collecting donations for Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation.

Individual donations are also extremely important and every dollar counts to help researchers find effective methods on detecting and treating ovarian cancer! Please donate on the site listed below or by check or cash through me (just contact me).
2011 calendars are also being pre-sold at $20 each. If calendars are purchased on my firstgiving site, 'calendar' must be specified in comment section of firstgiving page.
As an additional part of this fundraising effort, I am giving away a gift basket in a drawing. It will include traditional gift basket items, as well as gift certificates, including a hair and nail care day & one-night stay at THE REDMONT HOTEL, a premier boutique hotel in Birmingham that also hosts the only rooftop bar in all of the city, ABOVE. (http://www.theredmont.com/) For $5, you'll receive one drawing into the drawing, 5 for $20, and 12 for $40. Please just add "drawing" in the comment area during your donation. If you donate $20 or more and add both "drawing” and "calendar," you'll not only be entered into the drawing, but will also pre-order a 2011 calendar and support a great cause in the Birmingham Bombshells and the Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation!

Thank you for reading about my fundraising efforts and please help me and others fight ovarian cancer!

Thanks for adding this! I'm going to pass it along to my SIL, who is a marathon runner. Sounds like just the thing she'd love!

I forgot to mention that I work at the Curves on Southside down by UAB. We are on 18th St. South between 4th & 5th Avenue, right across the street from where Shoney's was...between Ted's to Go and China Master. We will be having refreshments, etc. at our location.

Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything.
