Welcome to Our Light The Night Walk Team Fundraising Page

Join us Tuesday, October 13th for a fundraiser!

From Fire on the Mountain:

We recently had a meeting at FOTM where we discussed plans to host a benefit night this fall.  As we decided which cause to support, we recalled a letter we received recently from a longtime customer. 

In this letter, Seth Vore told us how he has been in remission from stage 4 Lymphoma for 18 months.  His 40th Birthday is this October and he requested to use our party room at Fremont to gather family and friends to raise money for LLS whose chemo drugs that saved his life.  He said, "What better way to do that than FOTM wings and beer?" 

We were moved by Seth's story/cause which is also very close to our hearts at FOTM.  Therefore, we have decided to donate 25% of our proceeds from 5 p.m. - close at each of our 3 restaurants on the evening of Tuesday October 13th to leukemia and lymphoma research.  Please join us and help us make this a benefit night for the ages!

 

Captain Seth Vore is the founder, owner, and captain of Portland Boat Tours. However, he would be the first to tell you that for all his accomplishments in his life, winning his battle against lymphoma would outshine them all.

In August 2013, an MRI revealed that Captain Seth had a mass in his spine that was later discovered to be stage 4 lymphoma. After nine months of grueling treatment, Captain Seth’s cancer went into remission, and it has not returned since. The joy of survival could not be better summed up than it is in the journey revealed in Seth's blog: https://portlandboattours.com/CaptainSeth

On October 24, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Oregon chapter will hold the annual Light the Night walk to raise funds for the research that will lead to lifesaving treatments, as well as patient support services. The walk originates at the Oregon Convention Center and crosses the Steel Bridge, continuing south along the waterfront before looping back around. Captain Seth and countless others have benefited from the LLS’ efforts to find a cure for Leukemia and Lymphoma—not someday, but today—and every dollar and every walker at the Light the Night event helps.
