On Friday, May 2, 2014, Fit Nation will hold the second annual - Nathan's Night - a silent auction and fundraiser with a goal of raising $10,000 for the American Cancer Society in honor of the first Fit Nation employee, Nathan George. 
 
Nathan George dedicated his time and energy to educating others about health and fitness as an employee of Fit Nation.  He graduated from Parkway High School in 2006, but left this world too soon in 2010 after a battle with cancer.  Each year, Fit Nation employees participate in the Relay for Life for Team Fit-“Nate”tion in his memory. 
 
This year's fundraiser will be held at Great Raft Brewing. Tickets are $75 person with a discounted ticket for $50 until April 25th.  The evening will include live music by Daniel & the Louisiana Appleseeds, a tour of Great Raft Brewing, beer tastings, cash bar, heavy hors d'oeuvres and a Silent Auction.  Attire for the event is business casual with “Tennis Shoes Optional.”  You must be 21 or over to attend.
 
Anyone can make a donation to the American Cancer Society.  Those persons donating a minimum of $10.00 will be able to honor someone with a TRIBUTE LUMINARY at the event.  Upon making their donation online, they can provide a name they would like honored and that name will be placed on a lit luminary at the event for the evening.
 
During the evening, two participants will cut their hair, which they have been growing out for months, for donation to Pantene Beautiful Lengths Program which makes wigs for cancer patients.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the American Cancer Society.  For more information email nathansnight@yahoo.com.
