On a lovely summer night, 100 Women Who Care Lower Columbia met and chose the Dino Doozer Foundation as their 3rd, quarterly recipient. To date $12,500 has been raised for the local non profit with additional donations from members who were unable to attend coming in via mail or online! Here is a message from the founder of the foundation: http://www.dinodoozerfoundation.org
This Foundation was started in Aug. of 2008 in Honor of a brave young man named Sherod Don Nichols. He past away Dec. 29, 2009 of NF and a Rare Childhood Cancer associated with NF.
Sherod was one of the bravest kids I’ve ever known. He had such a big heart and his wish was to help those affected by NF and Rare Childhood Cancer.
He wanted to give kids a chance to get away from all the Hospitals and Doctors and forget for just a moment what they are up against.
If you know of a Family who has a child with NF or Cancer please don’t wait, give us a call any time of day or night. As a mother who lost a son I know what it’s like not being able to sleep and just wishing I had someone else to talk to. I also know what it is like to want to get away from it all even for just a few hours.
Throughout the year we host many events not only to help raise funds for families in need but to bring out awareness as well:
* Annual Golf Classic with LCTA & Dino Doozer
*A Masquerade Ball to raise funds for the Foundation
and much much more. Check out our Events page for updates on up and coming Events.
This past year we were able to reach our goal of sending 9 children to Camp New Friends in Virginia.
Without your help & support this wouldn’t have been possible and we are forever grateful!
Please remember you are not alone and we are here to help in any way we can.
