Thrown into the cancer world at seven, Eli Williams would spend half his earthly life fending off the deadly disease and contributing to its future cure. We, as Eli's Block Party, are picking up Eli’s flag by raising money for innovative brain cancer research.
What We Do
Our mission is to help close the funding gap between funding received and funding needed for innovative pediatric brain cancer research while giving back to our community through family-fun events.
Why We Do It
We raise money simply because the 4% of government cancer funding is not enough to fight the leading cause of death by disease in children. We do it simply because doctors in the richest country in the world should never say no to treating a child.
Where It Goes
We directly apply the funds we raise to the root of research by putting it in the hand that holds the microscope. We seek out doctors whose innovative research shows promise toward more effective treatments, and whose compassion for the patients and passion for the cause set them apart.
"May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands." - Psalm 90:17
Full-throttle Fundraising in 2022
EBP has the most generous supporters, and knowing that gives us the confidence to set a lofty goal for 2022. We are an all-volunteer 501c3. We fundraise all year, growing our events to benefit our community, then empty our coffers at the end of the year in a single donation to our beneficiary. To join our efforts, make a one-time donation or set up a monthly automatic draw through this website using the Donate link. Any amount, helps us close our circle!
$32,000 Goal in 2022
What You Can Do
EBP offers a variety of opportunities to join the effort of fighting childhood cancer.
Volunteer to work at one of our events or coordinate your own fundraiser for EBP. Also, we often have specialized needs, like for a social media coordinator or sponsor sales support or media outreach.
Host a booth, be a vendor, or participate as a guest at one of our events. We have paid vendor spots and free promotional spots available at our events. Or support us by attending and spreading the word.
Sponsor an event or the organization. We offer several levels of cash sponsorships that help more of what we raise go to our cause and less to event expenses.
