I am from Dallas TX, I have attended the LRL "Evening of Hope" dinner dance and silent auction in MI for the past two years. Both years have been an absolutely wonderful experience. Most importantly, the people at LRL do a great job of not making people feel uncomfortable while raising money for kids with cancer. LRL is not pushy at all, they show everyone a good time, if you can donate that is great, if you can't they are genuinely happy to have you there for your support, as LRL understands that raising awareness is just as important as raising money. I have met some of the best doctors this country has to offer at this event, their continued support of LRL, to me, shows that the money raised is working. I think LRL does a wonderful job of raising money for Leukemia research, and I will continue to give them as much support as I can for as long as I can. Cancer touches every family in almost every part of the world in one way or another, organizations like LRL need more support. Our doctors need more support. In short, my experiences with LRL have been absolutely wonderful.

LRL is a fantastic, grass-roots organization engaged in raising funds for cancer research being conducted at Children's Hospital of Michigan. I was drawn to this organization for several reasons but one of the most important is that it is run by volunteers. LRL is so lean and efficient that it is able to pass on 90% of every dollar directly to Children's Hospital. From my research it appears that most highly-ranked charities are only left with about 65% of every dollar once administrative and marketing costs are deducted. LRL, on the other hand, if focused on keeping its costs to a bare minimum with the intent of forwarding as much money as possible to fund pediatric cancer research.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting the kids who have survived cancer and who are now engaged with the organization to help find a cure so that other kids don't have to endure a childhood centered around cancer treatments.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring, committed individuals most of whom had one thing in common - they had a child with cancer.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

increase survival rates for kids with cancer; make great strides toward finding a cure for childhood cancers; reduce the suffering experienced by kids with cancer.

Wonderful experience. Eveyone on the team is caring and thoughtful. Nick and Susane Consiglio are the most dedicated couple I have ever worked with on a particular non-profit project. Most folks do not realize nor comprehend the tedious work (outside present jobs and family) that goes into keeping a program going. The annual Silent Auction Dinner is an extraordinary event and humbling experience. Just the effort to ask people to donate is difficult let alone getting it all together from all over lower Michigan. Personally I have seen a variety of cancer in my immediate family including losing a 13 year old brother 45 years ago to bone cancer. Therefore I have seen first hand how cancer research for children is so very important - my brother may have lived and not have suffered so severely had research funds and wonderful dedicated doctors and scientists been able to use this so long ago. We've come a long way and it MUST keep going. Please come on board to keep this train moving.
