CHAMPIONS FOR CHANGE | I’M ASKING YOU TO SUPPORT THE SKIN CANCER FOUNDATION

By | A Note from Shelley

NEW YORK, (April 26, 2021) –  Shelley Tanner, SanovaWorks CEO/President

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Have you or someone close to you been impacted by cancer? These days it’s difficult to imagine anyone who hasn’t been impacted by cancer. A few years ago I was diagnosed with Stage 3 metastatic breast cancer. I am celebrating 6 years cancer-free this year. Every year is a gift and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to be here to support others who have gone through something similar.

I am pleased to invite you to support The Skin Cancer Foundation’s mission and attend the Champions for Change Virtual Gala taking place on Tuesday, May 11 at 6:30pm EDT (the waiting room will open at 6:15pm EDT).

This year to celebrate my birthday I am asking anyone and everyone I know if they have just $5 to spare for skin cancer prevention and awareness. 

Please RSVP and/or donate here: https://give.skincancer.org/

The virtual Gala is free to attend and will be about 45 minutes long. It is a chance for you to learn more about the Foundation’s efforts to save lives and for you to get involved in a cause I am so passionate about.

This year, I am renewing my role on the Gala Committee. The Gala is the Foundation’s largest fundraiser of the year. However, given that this year’s virtual Gala is free, they are relying on the generosity of those of us who can make a donation to sustain their lifesaving programs. Please consider making a gift by visiting my page, linked above. This has been a challenging year for the Foundation and your support would mean so much.

I really hope you can join me on May 11 as I celebrate another year of life and support The Skin Cancer Foundation. Please help me spread the word and invite others to join the Gala. Together we can make a difference.

Sincerely,

Shelley

APRIL IS ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS MONTH AT SANOVAWORKS

By | SanovaWorks

NEW YORK, (April 16, 2021) –  Caroline Barrett, SanovaWorks Vice President of Operations

Environmental Awareness Month

April 22  is Earth Day. The first Earth Day was observed in 1970, and since then the collective awakening to the threat of climate change has increased decade by decade, year by year.

April is Environmental Awareness Month at SanovaWorks and to demonstrate our commitment to Mother Earth and environmental justice we created initiatives that inspire eco-conscious living:

Yearly Corporate Donation

As we do every year, we will make a corporate donation to a non-profit dedicated to environmental protection and/or restoration. We make this a companywide initiative by asking for suggestions from Team Sanova. As you can see, we have supported wonderful organizations dedicated to preserving the environment.

  • In 2016 we partnered with American Forests, as a Sequoia Circle member
  • In 2017 we donated to both the Natural Resources Defense Council and American Forests
  • In 2018 we donated to Ocean Conservancy
  • In 2019 we donated to the Natural Resources Defense Council
  • In 2020 given the pandemic outbreak, we decided to donate instead to initiatives supportive of those most affected by COVID-19, including The Bowery Mission NYC and GetUsPPE
  • What will it be in 2021? [stay tuned for a future blog post announcement!]

Think Green & Get Some Green

We are also holding a friendly competition, Think Green & Get Some Green, where Team members can share their environmentally conscious and energy-saving tips and resolutions. The posts with the most “likes” will win eGiftcards! [check back for some great eco-tips in a future blog post!]

Environmentally Conscious Home Upgrades Stipend

And finally, our newest initiative – in the coming weeks we will be launching a stipend for employees that make environmentally-conscious investments to their home: e.g. installing solar panels, sourcing clean energy for electricity, installing a rainwater collector, installing a composter, etc.  We are excited to see what Team Sanova can do to dramatically reduce their carbon footprint.

With sunny regards,

Caroline

CHAMPIONS FOR CHANGE IS GOING VIRTUAL

By | A Note from Shelley

NEW YORK, (April 7, 2021) –  Shelley Tanner, SanovaWorks CEO/President

Every spring, we gather to support the Skin Cancer Foundation at the Champions for Change Gala. Last year due to COVID-19, the Gala was canceled. That’s why it’s important to attend, support and donate to the Skin Cancer Foundation this year.

The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Champions for Change Gala

The annual Champions for Change Gala is The Skin Cancer Foundation’s signature fundraising event. Proceeds from the Gala support the Foundation’s lifesaving educational campaigns, community programs, and research initiatives.

This year, the Foundation is excited to announce the Gala is going virtual!

Guests can expect a jam-packed event, highlighting the Foundation’s work and the significance of the support of our donors, partners, members, and community, all from the comfort of their homes.

Gala attendees include Skin Cancer Foundation donors, industry and physician allies, celebrity supporters, members of the media, and families impacted by the disease.

“I look forward to the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Annual Gala every year since 2002 when I was a Mohs fellow with my mentor, Dr. Perry Robins. The Gala is a time for dermatologists to come together with colleagues, scientists, members of the beauty and media industries, celebrities, and friends in a collective effort to raise awareness about sun protection and skin cancer awareness. While this year we will be physically distanced, we can come together in spirit to achieve our mission!” Elizabeth K. Hale, M.D.

The Foundation is grateful to host this event in a new format this year and raise funds that help save and improve lives!
