More details about Lola’s Celebration of Life:
I am trying to get a “close” headcount on how many people will be coming. Can you please reply to this status or email Erin (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let her know you will be attending.
For those of you who cannot make it AND in lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Lola’s memory to one of her favorite organizations:
Stupid Cancer http://stupidcancer.org/
Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation http://www.nvchildrenscancer.org/
St. Baldrick’s Foundation http://www.stbaldricks.org/
Two last things — Purple is Lola’s favorite color and we’d love it if you could wear purple to her celebration. If you would like to say a few words about Lola (or even sing her a song), please let me know and I will set aside time during the celebration for everyone to do so.
Remember to check with Erin first about the potluck that what we are now calling #EatingLikeLola. The list of her fav foods is in the original post about her celebration.
