To the Editor:
Julia’s Wings Foundation would like to give heartfelt thanks to all of our guests, those who made donations, businesses and sponsors that made our fourth annual Evening of Hope the success it was.
It was our largest turnout to date.
The event was held at the picturesque Quaker Hill Country Club.
Together we joined and united and we stood to make a difference in the lives of children and their families fighting aplastic anemia.
We are so grateful to all of those who were in attendance and to all who so generously donated, as we raised over $33,000.
Special thanks to Gary and his staff at Quaker Hill Country Club, Henry and Katie from Lowell’s catering and Marty and Kayla, who created the amazing ambience through their beautiful acoustic music.
We were so honored to have Dr. Colin Sieff, Julia’s primary hematology/oncology doctor from Boston Children’s Hospital, speak in loving memory of Julia and the importance of the work of Julia’s Wings Foundation. Dr. Sieff shared how this disease has limited resources available at this time and the financial toll treatment places on families.
We continue to receive applications almost on a weekly basis and there is no way JWF would be where we are in just four short years without all of you.
So, from the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank you for your continued support of our mission.
On behalf of Mike, Heather, Lyss, the JWF board and families
