Bee Kind Bee the Difference Bee the Kure
The Women’s Guild “Hive” supports the purpose and activities of Kure It through fundraising, education, and community outreach. Hive members actively go out into the community and work hard to spread knowledge and their passion for supporting cancer research. In addition to creating awareness, members have a great time together and enjoy the company of other women who want to make a difference. Hive members also have the unique opportunity to attend lab tours at some of the country’s top Comprehensive Cancer Centers to learn more about the cutting edge research they are supporting through their time, talents, and treasures.
As you considering joining our guild we request you ask yourself a question:
What would I do to Kure It? To end cancer would you:
-Offer your vacation home as an auction item?
-Teach a class to promote fundraising?
-Give money towards research projects?
-Join our guild to build community and awareness?
Women's Guild + Kure It = Saving Lives
Each of us has a reason we want to “Bee the Kure”. There’s something that draws each of us into our role within the Women’s Guild. Why you choose to join our hive may look a little different for everyone. Most of us just want an end to cancer. Many are looking to connect with a community of like-minded women who are fighting to find that cure. Some are joining us to honor a loved one for whom a cure came just too late. We want to ask you, “What’s your why?”

Personal Strengths to Consider When Joining the Women’s Guild:
Each member of the Women’s Guild brings a unique and vital set of strengths to the hive as a whole. As you join our organization, we ask you to reflect on your own personal strengths and how you can best suit the guild with your service.
Maybe you would like to focus your time/energy on one of the following:
Outreach to the community: networking to increase general awareness of Kure It and the Women’s Guild to your friends, family, colleagues, and the community at large.
Auction/Sponsor Solicitation: seeking attendance at Kure It/Women’s Guild events, procuring auction items, sponsorships, in-kind donations, etc.
