The Chris Elliott Fund to Honor the Late Kathi Goertzen, Longtime Western Washington News Anchor, with Inspiration Award at May 16th Brains Matter Auction and Luncheon

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 09, 2013

The Chris Elliott Fund (CEF) announces the 3rd Annual Brains Matter Awareness Auction & Celebration Luncheon on May 16th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Bellevue Club in Bellevue, Washington. Recommended donation per registration is $150. All proceeds go towards supporting vital, free, patient services to brain cancer and brain tumor patients locally and nationally. Doors to the event open at 11:00 a.m. for a champagne reception. The program and announcement of awards start at 12:00 p.m followed by a live auction. This program is presented as part of CEF's education and awareness campaign during May, National Brain Tumor Awareness Month.

This event will feature CEF’s Inspiration Award which will be given to longtime and beloved news anchor Kathi Goertzen, presented to Kathi’s husband and daughters on behalf of Kathi. This year's Inspiration Award is sponsored by Novocure. Long time KOMO news anchor Kathi Goertzen lost her battle due to complications from a recurring meningioma brain tumor in August of 2012. She and her family have created the Kathi Goertzen Foundation with an underlying mission of inspiration, hope and a cure for brain tumors and brain cancer. Kathi's longtime friends and anchor partners, Steve Pool, Dan Lewis and Eric Johnson from KOMO 4 TV news will be at this event as well to honor Kathi.

The Chris Elliott Fund is privileged to present this year's Inspiration Award to Kathi Goertzen’s family says Dellann Elliott, Founder and President of the Chris Elliott Fund, “Kathi is an inspiration to all of us in the brain tumor community in her public fight with this aggressive disease, her positive attitude during her fight to end this disease and to bring awareness to this disease. I still hear Kathi’s voice and laugh today and each time I hear it, her spirit moves me to smile and to continue helping those touched with brain tumors. Kathi has and always will be an inspiration during her lifetime and now, through her legacy.”

This event is made possible through generous support granted by Arbor Pharmaceuticals, LLC. The Chris Elliott Fund sends special thanks to this year’s Inspiration Award sponsor, Novocure, Genentech the event’s Awareness & Education sponsor, and the NuWest Group, this year's Hope Award Sponsor. This event was also made possible through generous support from Bonneville Seattle—KIRO, KTTH, and ESPN-Seattle—and Universal Avionics.
