"It's Personal" Dinner and Silent Auction with Kimmy Fasani & Chris Benchetler
It's Personal for Kimmy and Chris.
Silent Auction, Dinner at Mammoth Mountain. Friday, May 3rd, 2013.
We all have a story and we want this night to be about sharing and connecting on an "It's Personal" basis. Chris and I met in 2003 and were married in 2011. It was losing both of our dad's to cancer separately that actually brought us together.
Unfortunately, cancer has been a big part of Chris and my family for the past 14 years. My dad passed away to lung cancer in 1999, my uncle in 2005, and my mom is living with Non-Hodgkins Follicular Lymphoma. Chris's dad passed away in 2003 from lung cancer, and his grandma passed away to lung cancer in 2007.
We want to create a community within our industry for people to share their stories, find comfort, become educated and aware about cancer. Together with B4BC and Mammoth Mountain we are hoping to inspire youth to get involved and stay involved with snowboarding and skiing, while also educating on ways to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
