The sad reality of running a charity is that there are bound to be impostors that falsely claim to be associated with fundraising efforts, for their personal gain. We have our very first fraud alert.
Cancer Gets LOST was created by and is being produced by only 2 people: Jared Wong and Jo Garfein. There are NO volunteers out there soliciting cash on our behalf for the National Brain Tumor Society, nor will there ever be. Unfortunately, the NBTS received a call about someone claiming to be working with us, asking for money on the street. THIS is an impostor. Please let us know if you see this person, and where.
Our organization is raising money for the NBTS in 3 specific ways: via the online auction (each winning bid will be processed individually by the NBTS as a tax-deductible donation), online donations to be made directly to the NBTS during our live streaming charity webcast on 8/25, and cash donations at the door for admission to our fundraising party on 8/25.
