On Wednesday, September 19th, join us for a golf outing to network in true SPS fashion. In an effort to continually build community within SPS, we will be making this outing an annual event to support a local SPS reader’s cause. This year we will be supporting SPS member Mike Cipriano, whose daughter, Genevieve, recently lost her leg due to a rare form of bone cancer. The outing will be hosted at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont, IL and post-outing refreshments will continue just down the road at 3 Corners Grill & Tap.
This isn’t just any ordinary outing though. Along with supporting a local reader, this event will focus on connections by placing each golfer in a foursome with whom they seek to network. Remember the “I need” and “I know” stickers from previous events? Well, once again we’ll be paring those who need with those who know. Are you an IT professional? Ride with others in your field. Are you a marketer? Hit par with someone who may need your services. Regardless of your background, we’ll partner you with individuals seeking to network and learn the suburban tech scene.
This Year SiliconPrairieSocial is Supporting…
In the Fall of 2011, Genevieve was just starting her junior year of high school. She was in many ways a typical teen with a wide circle of family and friends. In a few short months her and her family’s lives were dramatically altered by a diagnosis of Osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer that primarily affects teens. Genevieve fought through the tests, chemo treatments, and the resulting illness. Ultimately, her doctors determined that her best hope for a healthy future required that her right leg be amputated. The surgery took place on April 23, 2012. Though the journey has been brutally difficult, Genevieve has survived an on July 2nd, she completed her final chemo treatment.
As her recovery progresses, Genevieve is looking forward to going back to school, pursuing her artwork and most of all, walking. The family and friends of the Cipriano family are raising funds for her medical expenses and her prosthesis so that she can walk again without crutches. It is their hope that a new leg will give Genevieve the confidence and the mobility she needs to improve the quality of her life.
