Opportunity to Meet VCs and Fundraiser to Cure Cancer

Dear Chuck,

My name is Tiffany Lan and I am participant in Venture Lab and a PR agent for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society(LLS). I am writing to you to let you know about a great opportunity for the members of Venture Lab to meet with VCs! The Venture Capital Master’s Lunch Series(Round two), an online eBay auction of meetings with area VCs is a fundraising initiative lead by Roger Royse - a candidate for Man/Woman of The Year. 

The LLS reaches millions of people each year and is the leader in scientific research in finding a cure to blood cancers. The first round of the auction raised $46k for LLS and we are hoping Venture Lab can help spread the word -- perhaps a forward of the Ebay site to the members of Venture Lab?

See the EBay site for our second round.

The following are up for bidding in the auction:

Private Meeting with Kittu Kolluri, General Partner, New Enterprise Associates
Private Meeting with Scott Sandell, General Partner, New Enterprise Associates
Lunch with Patrick Chung, Partner, New Enterprise Associates, & Jonathan Heiliger, General Partner, North Bridge Ventures
Lunch with Byron Deeter, Partner, Ethan Kurzweil VP, Bessemer Venture Partners, & Sarah Tavel (former VP at Bessemer, now at Pinterest)
Lunch with Josh Stein, Managing Director, DFJ
