  • How is my information shared?
    We do not have direct access to any of your financial information. We process the payments for tickets using a 3rd party website, Eventbrite. We have used Eventbrite for most of our past events and we have experienced no issues with the platform. We will collect basic information that you provide to identify yourself as a donor / ticket purchaser. As a donor we will send you a thank you email or letter in the mail. You can opt out of all future communications at any time. We do not sell or share any of your information with 3rd parties.
  • What will you do with the money I donate?
    For the first ten years we hosted RSL, all proceeds were donated to The American Heart Association (see link below). Effective August 2022, all proceeds will go to the Veronica Blount Memorial Foundation (VBMF), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. VBMF will continue to make annual contributions to the Veronica Blount Memorial Fund with the American Heart Association (AHA). Our contributions to AHA will assist with scientific studies and other resources needed to combat heart disease and other heart / stroke related health issues. More information about VBMF can be found on our website. AHA Memorial Page:;jsessionid=00000000.app30028a?px=11117524&fr_id=3930&pg=personal&NONCE_TOKEN=26AA7F69D9D774B0957F053FDCC14C4C
