Back in August, Eyeflow CEO Phil Laboon became an internet celebrity when he transformed his canceled wedding ceremony into one of the city’s most successful fundraising events. Now Surgicorps and Laboon are looking to capture the magic of LemonAID one more time.
To end 2014 on a high note, Surgicorps and Laboon have teamed up once more to raffle off the truly one-of-a-kind Tanzanite “Hope” Necklace. As Surgicorps’s “LemonAID” maker, Laboon will be selecting the winning raffle ticket at the Mount Washington Overlook at noon on Tuesday, December 30th.
The aftermath of LemonAID for Surgicorps
Using the donations and money raised at August’s LemonAID event, the Surgicorps team quickly shifted their focus to their next medical mission. The team arrived at the African country of Zambia freshly stocked with new supplies and funding, allowing them to help hundreds of patients receive life-saving medical treatment.
As 2014 comes to a close, Surgicorps will officially celebrate its 20th year of helping individuals from across the globe receive free surgical and medical care.
“Jack and Linda have really gone out of their way year after year to help those in need. Their efforts are truly an inspiration to me, and it’s an honor to be able to help spread awareness of their mission once more,” explains Laboon.
So far, Surgicorps has six trips planned through 2015 with stops throughout South America, Africa, and Asia. You can keep up to date on all of Surgicorps’ medical missions by following them on Twitter or Facebook.
The Tanzanite “Hope” Necklace
The lucky winner will be able to take home the truly exquisite Tanzanite “Hope” Necklace. The necklace showcases a finely-detailed Tanzanite stone given to Jack and his team during a medical mission to Tanzania in 2006.
The sterling silver necklace is a once in a lifetime treasure that truly must be seen to be believed. The necklace features a breathtakingly beautiful 7.5 karat violet-blue oval Tanzanite stone, a beauty that is beyond value and makes for an incredibly unique keepsake.
Surgicorps and Laboon invite you to attend the drawing ceremony at the Monongahela Incline on Mount Washington at 12 p.m., Tuesday. Additionally, Surgicorps is always looking for volunteers and donations to help them on their medical missions.
