Vote “Fore” Jenny Poff!!! | Erie, PA Charity Event Photographer

A few months ago I was contacted by the wonderful Jenny Poff.  Jenny is running for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s “Woman of the Year” and raising money in memory her parents, Butch and Kathy Marofsky, who both unfortunately passed from Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Although my business is fairly new, I try to donate my services to charity about twice a year. After hearing Jenny’s story, how she was directly affected by the loss of both of her parents to blood cancers and how passionate she is about raising money and awareness in their memory, I knew I wanted to participate in this cause.

A couple of weeks ago we did portraits of Jenny for her website and promotional materials associated with her fundraising.  I will also be photographing the “Butch and Kathy Marofsky Golf Memorial” fundraising event that will be held at Whispering Woods golf course here in Erie, PA on May 18th.

By running for “Woman of the Year” every dollar that Jenny raises counts as one vote and all monies raised will be a directed donation to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Patient Services right here in Erie, Pa.

The MWOY (Man and Woman of the Year) campaign kicks off March 20 through the
grand finale on June 1.  There are many FUN and easy ways you can help:

1. Play Golf!  Jenny’s parents were very passionate about golf, and in fact owned and operated  Chapel hills Golf Course in Ashtabula, Ohio.  If you are in Erie (or if you would like to travel here) you can sign up for the tournament.  The tournament has cash prizes, a chinese auction and raffle tickets.  And get this…  There is a “Hole in one prize” of a 2012 328i BMW donated by New Motors!!!

2. Purchase Art!  While doing Jenny’s portraits, I learned that her father Butch Marofsky was also a photographer!  Jenny is offering one of his beautiful pictures that can be purchased as a commemorative print.

3. Become a sponsor! If you are a large business, small business or even just want to make an individual donation, there is a sponsorship opportunity for everyone.

4. Volunteer!  Everyone knows that time = money, and any time you could donate to help Jenny’s cause would be very much appreciated!

5. Donate! Contact Jenny to find out how you can make a donation. No matter how large or small… remember every dollar = 1 vote, and every vote counts!!!

6. Raffle Tickets! Raffle tickets go on sale March 20 thru May 31 and cost 1 for $10, 3 for $30 or 10 for $50 plus a bonus ticket.  The awesome prizes include a 42″ HD TV (sponsored by Marsha Marsh Real Estate Services) and a Titleilst Golf Bag (sponsored by Whispering Woods Golf Club). To order tickets they can email OR myself who will also have raffle tickets to sell by the end of the month.
