  • Charity Event: Put a "Lid" on Cancer

  • CharityVideoSnapshotWelcome to the 2017 Region I AAMVA Conference charity event and thank you for joining us in this effort to raise money for the Maine Medical Center Cancer Institute (MMCCI). MMCCI is Maine’s leading provider of oncology services for adults and children, offering a depth and breadth of clinical quality and expertise that is unrivaled in northern New England. From prevention and early detection to state-of-the-art treatment and clinical trials, as well as educational and emotional support, the MMC Cancer Institute is home to the most comprehensive array of award-winning cancer care resources in the region.

    The fight against cancer goes on. Most of us have or know someone through family or friends that have battled this terrible illness. Together we can help put a “lid” on cancer. There are two ways to help. We are asking that each jurisdiction and industry organization consider making a donation for this event as well as bring your best decorated hat (“lid”) that represents you or your state/province/organization.  Below are instructions on how to donate.

    Donation can be made online prior to the conference or at the conference up until the State Banquet on Tuesday evening:
    1. Go to the Maine Medical Center website
    2. Complete the donation form and under “Designation,” select “Cancer Care Fund”

    Decorate your “Lid”

     2017 RI Pattys Hat You are cordially invited to the best “lid” party in Portland Maine! This is a challenge to all attendees to decorate a “lid” better than Patty Morneault’s!  On July 11th wear your “lid” to the  Maine State Banquet.  We are asking each to have one member of your team participate in our “lids” on parade contest.  We are shooting for at least one hat from each  jurisdiction/organization for our parade.  LET’S HAVE FUN!!  We will pick one winner from each of the following three categories for the best decorated “lid”:
     1. Most whimsical
     2. Best cancer themed
     3. Best state/province/organization themed

    Thank you for your donation and participation in our event.  We look forward to raising the bar and having a charity event that not only helps MMCCI but also provides the most self-entertainment possible!
