Greetings!

The Kitsap County Medical Society is a 501 c3 not for profit organization and this year marks our 80th Year! The KCMS 2014 Fire and Ice Gala, "007 ~ License to Chill", will be held on September 27th, 2014 at the Kitsap Fairgrounds Pavilion and is expected to be a sell-out event with approximately 500 in attendance. We are asking you to join us to make it a memorable one.

Funds generated from this year's Fire and Ice event will support the charitable work of the KCMS, with a special focus on support with KMHS Foster Children, Harrison Medical Center's Nursing Residency Campaign, nursing scholarships and life-jackets for Kitsap County lake loaner boards. In addition, the KCMS Foundation in partnership with the Haselwood Family YMCA for the past two years have provided healthy lifestyle prescriptions to KCMS Family Medicine physicians for use with their patients most at risk of being overweight. The "Youth Fit" program provides a free 3-month membership to the YMCA where the children & parents will undergo fitness, nutrition and self esteem classes in addition to a custom fitness program created just for them. Measurements of strength & fitness will be monitored throughout the 3-month course. Childhood obesity is an epidemic in our nation with alarming growth & leads to life long health risks such as hypertension, diabetes, cardiac disease & depression. The Medical Society has been raising awareness around this important issue for the past eight years with the Family Fun Run and Fitness Fair. The Youth Fit program represents a focused extension of this ongoing project that will bring the knowledge & tools to families most at risk in our county.

Please join us at Fire & Ice & help us make our community, healthier, stronger & wiser!

Your major sponsorship or the donation of an auction item at this year's event would help tremendously and will have a life-long impact on the lives of Kitsap County families. Thank you for your consideration of support.

Sincerely,

Dr. Melissa Lo,KCMS President
Rebecca Carlson, KCMS Executive Director
