Eli's Birthday Fundraiser

Eli's Birthday Fundraiser was a success! I want to take a moment to thank everyone involved. It was amazing to see how many people truly love Eli.

With the crowdrise page, the silent auction and donations given at the party, we raised over $6,000! Amazing.....All of the funds went to the Cure GM1 Foundation, to be used towards research to cure GM1 Gangliosidosis.

So many friends, family, neighbors, school staff, coworkers, and medical contacts helped with the party and auction. If I try to name each person, I may forget someone. So I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who donated online, by mail, came to the party, helped at the party, donated items or services for the silent auction, purchased items at the silent auction, helped me get the word out and/or donated items/services to use at the party.

 Thank You, Thank You! 

I know that budgets can get tight, so we REALLY appreciate your support and anything you donated or helped with. It was truly a special thing for me to watch and be a part of. It was amazing to see the love that people have for my truly angelic, unassuming, sweet, innocent boy.

Now for some pictures. I will let them do the rest of the explaining. Stephanie Moore took pictures of the kids ahead of time, and her and Candace Read both took pictures during the party. Thank you, Thank you to them and everyone else!!!

If you notice, Evan is not in any pictures, he got scared of some of the face painting and wouldn't calm down, so Janei (my friend) had to take him away from the party. Thank you Janei, Evan was really freaking out!
