Event proceeds after expenses will go to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation.
In Memory of Bonnie Fleming.
Changing Lives Fundraiser
To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Caitlin Fortuna and I am a resident of Salem, MA with my architect husband,
Darguin Fortuna, and my three beautiful children. Unfortunately, in August of 2018, I lost my
mother to a rare and aggressive form of cancer, cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer).
Therefore, my siblings and I have decided to host an annual fundraiser in order to raise
awareness, raise funds for a cure, and in memory of our mother, Bonnie Fleming.
The event will be held on Friday, February 15, 2019 from 6:00 – 10:00 PM at the Salem
Waterfront Hotel in Salem, MA. There will be food, an open cash bar, fun and dancing with DJ
Nick, and a silent auction. Event proceeds after expenses will go the Cholangiocarcinoma
Foundation (a 501(c)(3) public charity, with a Platinum Guidestar rating from which over
$2.4 million has been raised from donations since the organization’s founding).
How can you help?
