Dear Lynn Sage Supporters,

As we near the end of July, we are preparing for our busy fall season. Some of our favorite events take place during the second half of the year, and we’re grateful for your continued support as we enter our main fundraising period!

Our current Lynn Sage Scholar, Dr. Athanassios Vassilopoulos, is continuing to conduct important research that focuses on the study of the genetic and biochemical connection between sirtuin genes and carcinogenesis as well as tumor cell resistance. We are proud to support such an innovative and genuine doctor and his work to end breast cancer. To read more about Dr. Vassilopoulos’ research, click here.

The Associate Board hosted their third annual Summer Toast on June 5 at The Underground in Chicago. We had an amazing time with almost 300 supporters! We are grateful to our corporate sponsors for helping make the event a huge success: Domu, Goldberg Kohn, LaSalle Network, Mesirow Financial, and Wintrust.

We are always looking for corporate partners to join us in the fight against breast cancer. If you would like more information on how your company can partner with The Lynn Sage Foundation, please let us know. Upcoming opportunities include corporate sponsorship of Chicago’s In Good Taste in October and in-kind donations to the silent auction at CHILL in November! Remember to ask your employer about matching gifts when you make your donation!

Did you know that you don’t have to be local to Chicago to get involved in our campaigns? We have national partners that support our cause by fundraising in October, breast cancer awareness month. An easy way to start is to create your own fundraising page dedicated to The Lynn Sage Foundation and share with your friends. We’re always happy to help come up with ways to raise money for breast cancer researcher in your city!

Please remember to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and sign up for our monthly newsletter to stay up to date about our Scholar’s progress, events and ways you can get involved.

Thank you, as always, for your generous support in the fight against breast cancer. Together we can find a cure.

Warm regards,

Laura & Halee Sage

Last month, we held a reception to honor our newest Lynn Sage Scholar, Dr. Athanassios Vassilopoulos. Dr. Vassilopoulos’ research focuses on the study of the genetic and biochemical connection between sirtuin genes and carcinogenesis as well as tumor cell resistance. The team at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine organized a lovely and informative reception which included a tour of Dr. Vassilopoulos’ lab!

Hi Everyone,

We hope everyone is having a relaxing and fun summer so far!

We had a successful and busy start to our summer with many events surrounding Mother’s Day. Our With Mom 4 Mom fitness events boasted a variety of workouts to raise money for our cause, including crossfit, yoga, pilates, barre, spinning, and much more! We had such a great response to the Mother’s Day fitness classes that we decided to continue the campaign by holding one class per month for the rest of the year. Please save the date for our upcoming fitness classes on August 27 at Rock Solid Fitness and September 13 at Pure Barre River North. Details can be found on our website.

On Friday, May 16, The Lynn Sage Foundation Associate Board hosted their second annual Summer Toast at The Underground. Over 200 young professionals came out for the event which featured a Summer Toast specialty cocktail, appetizers, raffle items, and resident DJ’s. The event raised over $17,000 for local breast cancer researchers!

As summer starts to wind down, we are busy preparing for our Seventh Annual Chicago’s In Good Taste this October! We already have over 60 restaurants committed to raising funds for The Lynn Sage Foundation by promoting special food and drink items throughout the month. If you are interested in learning more about our signature initiative, please visit our campaign page. We are always looking for new restaurant, retail, spa, and corporate partners.

We are also getting ready for CHILL: An International Culinary and Wine Event, which will take place at the Merchandise Mart on November 13. Tickets are already on sale and if purchased early, will also get you access to an exclusive wine tasting event at Disotto Enoteca on September 17 from 5-8pm. Tickets may be purchased by clicking here, and please don’t forget to specify The Lynn Sage Foundation as your charity of choice.
