Eve Selis Seeks Cancer Walk Sponsors
Singer Eve Selis has sent me plenty of e-mails in the past about her upcoming performances, but I got one from her this week that wasn't about music. This one told why Eve was making a last-minute decision to participate in this Sunday's "Walk for Hope to Cure Breast Cancer," an event I already knew about because my friend Marisa Cullen recently told me she will be doing the walk.
Here's Eve's message (with a picture I shot of her in 2002):
I normally don't use my e-mail list for personal reasons, but this is different. Last week my family found out my 44-year-old sister Gabrielle has breast cancer. Her prognosis is good because they caught it early, but it is still cancer and we are all devastated.Posted at 12:35 PM in San Diego
I found a brochure a few days ago about an event sponsored by the City Of Hope called "Walk for Hope to Cure Breast Cancer." It's a 5K walk that takes place this Sunday, May 16th, at Tecolote Shores Park North in Mission Bay. You can get more details about the event from both City of Hope and SignOnSanDiego.com. I am sending out an e-mail to my fans to see if anyone would like to join us for the walk or sponsor me. It can be as little as $5 or as much as you want. I had a gig Monday night and appealed to everyone there to sponsor me. I received $170!!
I've been buying breast cancer stamps for 5 years now, as I've unfortunately been asked to sing at funerals for two sisters in one family and wanted to do something to make a difference. Now this is very personal and I'm on a crusade... because now breast cancer runs in my family. I have 4 sisters and 12 nieces and this has to stop right here.
If you are interested in helping me make a difference, please e-mail me at email@example.com. You can deposit your donation into my PayPal account using that same firstname.lastname@example.org address, or send a check made out to City Of Hope to:

Thanks for your understanding!! Feel free to forward this e-mail to as many people as you can. Let's make a difference together!!!!
