On Wednesday, August 22, 2012, SuperSibs! will host an event to kick off the inaugural year of its Sibtember fundraiser. The event will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the second floor of John Barleycorn bar and restaurant in Schaumburg.

Sibtember is a nationwide effort to raise awareness and funds for SuperSibs!—an organization that provides support to the siblings of children with cancer. This grassroots movement involves supporters wearing suspenders during the entire month of September. These participants share their story—and the story of SuperSibs!—with others in hopes of raising pledges for their suspender-donning efforts. Participants are encouraged to have fun with their suspenders by decorating them, adding flair and getting creative with how they fashion these supportive wardrobe accents.
To get more information about the Sibtember kickoff event on August 22, contact Emily Shannon at the contact information listed with this release. Members of the press are encouraged to RSVP prior to the event via telephone or email.

SuperSibs! is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring ongoing comfort, recognition and support to children with brothers and sisters who have cancer. SuperSibs! helps these siblings to redefine the cancer experience to use these life lessons for strength, courage and hope as they move into the future. No longer are these "shadow survivors" forgotten and alone as they battle feelings of fear, insignificance, guilt, helplessness, anger and grief. For more information, visit http://www.supersibs.org.
