On Wednesday, November 6, 2013, the Connecticut Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) will host StarWrite, it’s fourth annual author’s luncheon featuring the co-host of ESPN’s Mike and Mike in the Morning, Mike Greenberg. Mr. Greenberg has written three books, Why My Wife Thinks I’m an Idiot, Mike & Mike’s Rules for Sports and Life (co-written with Mike Golic), and his latest release, a novel, All You Could Ask For. The novel is a tender and insightful story of friendship and love, heartbreak and renewal, played out in the lives of three unforgettable women.
“We are so thrilled to have Mike Greenberg as our guest speaker for our fourth annual event,” said Jeannie Montano, Executive Director. “Mike’s most recent work deals with friendship and cancer and all that comes with it. It’s a topic everyone can relate to. To have Mike support our LLS mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families is tremendous.”
LLS hopes to raise over $30,000 during this fun-filled day, which will also include networking, an auction, and book signing. Tickets for StarWrite start at $75 per person. Sponsorships are also available starting at $750. Current sponsors include KO Media, OOH Wilkins America, Serendipity, News8, WEBE/WICC, The Daily Voice, WSHU, and Community Health Charities.
