Share Article

NTC will partner with area restaurants to raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society through the Relay for Life Event in Palm Harbor.

All of us at NTC are committed to doing our part to raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer, and we hope that other local businesses will join with us.

As part of its ongoing efforts to give back to the local community, Nationwide Title Clearing (NTC) is actively participating in the American Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life event – and is currently inviting area restaurants to get involved through team sponsorship. Sponsors will have an opportunity to promote their business while helping NTC raise funds for cancer research. The local Relay for Life will be held at Palm Harbor University High School; the event will start at 6 p.m. on April 13, 2012, and continue overnight, ending with a closing ceremony the morning of April 14.

“Cancer has impacted the lives of countless individuals throughout our community. Many people have a friend or family member who has battled cancer, and some have faced it themselves. All of us at NTC are committed to doing our part to raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer, and we hope that other local businesses will join with us,” said Joellen Raiti, Vice President of Marketing at Nationwide Title Clearing. Raiti is also volunteering as Publicity Chair for the Relay for Life Committee, Palm Harbor Chapter.

Headquartered in Palm Harbor, Florida, NTC is recognized as the industry’s leading residential mortgage post-closing services provider. The company has a long history of giving back to the local community through partnerships with various non-profit organizations, including the Homeless Emergency Project (HEP) in Clearwater and Toys for Tots® of Tampa Bay.

NTC is sponsoring a team of 30 walkers for the Palm Harbor Relay for Life. The theme of this year’s event is “Toon Out Cancer”; participants are getting into the spirit by naming their teams after cartoon characters. NTC’s walkers have dubbed themselves the Smurfs, and their slogan is, “Smurfing Cancer Out!” The NTC team has set an ambitious goal of raising $15,000 for the American Cancer Society, and Raiti hopes area restaurants will take advantage of sponsorship opportunities to help them reach that goal.

“There are two things most anyone can appreciate: good food and a good cause,” noted Raiti. “We’d like to invite local restaurants to consider sponsoring our team. Sponsors will not only help us raise funds for the American Cancer Society, but they’ll also gain exposure and create goodwill among area residents. This can help them acquire new customers and encourage return visits from existing patrons.”

NTC is offering three different sponsorship plans for participating restaurants:


With this option, your restaurant would host a one-day “dine for a cause” event and donate a portion of all sales (such as 25% of the day’s checks) to the NTC Relay for Life team. NTC will promote the event and your business, encouraging area residents to dine there in support of a great cause.


Sponsors opting for this plan would donate coupons for a free lunch. You can specify the number of coupons and maximum value, such as $10 in menu items. NTC will raffle off the coupons and donate all proceeds to the American Cancer Society, and will help promote your business through the raffle ticket sales.


The Relay for Life event is a great opportunity to introduce your business to new customers. Restaurants often sell food at Relay for Life booths or campsites as an on-site fundraiser. Sponsors would need to donate food, servers and supplies for the event, with all proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society. We are seeking sponsors to fill three different shifts during the relay event: dinner, midnight snack and breakfast.

All proceeds raised through restaurant sponsorships will be applied toward the NTC team’s $15,000 Relay for Life fundraising goal. Sponsors should be aware that this is a team-level sponsorship, and does not connote corporate sponsorship at the event level.

Businesses interested in NTC team sponsorship opportunities should contact Joellen Raiti at or 727-771-4000, ext. 230. Individual donations are also being accepted through the NTC Relay for Life donation page.

About Relay for Life:
Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event, and is driven by volunteers. Relay for Life began in 1985 when colorectal surgeon Dr. Gordon Klatt decided to raise money for the American Cancer Society in honor of his patients by walking around a track in a 24 hour period. Today, Relay for Life events are held in more than 5,000 communities spanning 21 countries and have raised an estimated over $3 billion. All proceeds go to funding cancer research with the aims of stomping out the disease. In addition to fundraising, the event also raises awareness of the disease and furthers the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, helping them get well, and by finding cures and fighting back.
