Doug recently passed away due to Metastatic Melanoma and Derek passed from colon cancer. I worked with both of these gentleman at the former APAC CUSTOMER SERVICES in Lincoln, Illinois. While at Doug’s funeral myself and several other former coworkers decided to have a reunion of all former APAC coworkers in Doug and Derek’s memory. During this event we will be having a 50/50 raffle and silent auction with all proceeds going to Simmons Cancer Institute of SIU in Springfield in their name to honor their memory. I am asking if your business would be willing to donate an item (s) that we may use in the silent auction. This event is to be held on Saturday April 9th, 2016 @ Logan Lanes in Lincoln with approximately 150-200 people attending. We hope in partnering with your company that we will be able to provide a generous donation to the Simmons Cancer Institute.

Please send any donated items to:
