Tamara Greet continuously exhibits a strong degree of responsibility to her community through her many ongoing volunteer activities and accomplishments in both the public and private sector by:
Volunteering as the Publicity Chair for the American Cancer Society’s “Relay of Life” event in 2003. This annual activity meets a real community need and concern and leads to a long-term solution in the area of cancer research and education by raising thousands of dollars for researching, treating, and educating the public concerning that disease. The event builds a connection between those afflicted by cancer and those in the community desiring to help find a cure. Tamara also developed a relay team for the 2004 (and future) event(s), creating a partnership and ongoing involvement between the Long Beach Junior Chamber (Jaycees) and the American Cancer Society in Long Beach, California that will continue in the coming years.
