FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

7TH ANNUAL LONG BEACH FIREFIGHTERS AND TOM ATKINSON MEMORIAL EVENT BENEFITING BRAIN CANCER RESEARCH AT UCLA SET FOR JUNE 6TH AT GASLAMP IN LONG BEACH

Fundraising Efforts have raised over $400,000 in the last 6 years

Cindy Atkinson and Cris Zavaleta are two women on a mission.  The “Cranium Crusaders,”  who are an official UCLA support group for brain cancer – have joined forces to raise money to help extend the lives of those diagnosed with this deadly disease, as well as fund brain cancer research at UCLA, in their opinion the most cutting-edge brain cancer institution in the country.

“We have one simple mission – to find a cure – and we’re doing it the only way we know how, by raising money.” said Atkinson and Zavaleta.

The setting for their joint fund raising effort is The Gaslamp in Long Beach at 6251 E Pacific Coast Hwy starting at 5 pm.

Cindy’s husband, Tom, was a contractor and restaurant owner who fought his battle with brain cancer for 13 months, passing away in 2006.

Cris’s husband, Hank, was a Long Beach Fire Captain who fought his battle for eight years, passing away in 2011.

By raising money for a cause so close to their hearts, Atkinson and the Zavaletas hope to spread the word about brain cancer; share survivors’ concerns and fears; and spread hope for a cure.

This years’ event will be a blow out party with dj, dancing, and thousands of dollars in raffle prizes.
