This year we will be honoring Kathi Goertzen with the 2013 Inspiration Award at our 3rd Annual Luncheon. We hope you can join us for this special day of awareness and celebration.

The Chris Elliott Fund has several signature events it hosts every year. One of the most exciting is our annual Brains Matter Celebration & Awareness Luncheon where CEF gets to honor those who are inspiring and bringing awareness to brain cancer and brain tumors. We also get to celebrate those who are fighting and have fought this disease.  One of those who will be honored is long time Western Washington news anchor Kathi Goertzen, who lost her battle due to complications from her brain tumor in August of 2012. Her husband and daughters will be accepting CEFs Inspiration Award for her and her family’s vital work to work towards inspiration, hope and a cure through her fight with brain tumors and the Kathi Goertzen Foundation.

Please join us on May 16th at the Bellevue Club from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. where you will enjoy a champagne reception with the CEF team and all those celebrating with us, in addition to an award ceremony and keynote speaker David Heyting who was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2011, having underge treatment with successful results. Jim Dever of King 5 Evening Magazine will be Master of Ceremonies for the afternoon.

For more information about the event, underwriting opportunities, sponsorships and registration please visit the registration page. All proceeds of the event go towards CEF operations including timely patient services and expansion of the Chris Elliott Fund call center.
