HAWLEY — Nichole Granville announces the Annual Fundraising Event to support Pennies From Heaven Caleb’s Foundation.
The 6th Annual Tricky Tray is set for Sunday, April 26, from noon to 2:30 p.m. at Ehrhardt’s Waterfront Restaurant. More than 100 themed baskets (valued at $100+) for every family member including the pet will be raffled off.
Admission is free, cash bar available, door prizes and desserts will be given out and general tickets will be sold at $5 for 25.
Once again, Caleb’s Wishing Well will be set up so extra pennies and change can be tossed in and to make a wish. Last year’s event raised $42,000 for families in need. To become a monetary event sponsor, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.calebspennies.org for more information.
Caleb’s Pennies From Heaven is rather unique in its concept which is “No parent should have to prioritize a payment or job before the care of their sick child.” The foundation has lived by this motto since May 2010 as they have financially assisted more than 330 families with a critically ill child.
“Our mission has remained the same since day one and that is to support parents in the care of their sick child by relieving the stress of financial burdens at home. We have helped by covering rent and mortgage payments, electric and medical bills, other utility bills and much more,” said Caleb’s mom, Nichole.
Caleb was a little boy with an amazing spirit, infectious laugh and energy for life that was unmatched. In February 2007 at the age of 2, Caleb was granted his angel wings after being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.
“My family and I started this foundation as a way to help others while honoring Caleb’s memory. He inspired us to take the tragedy of losing him and turn it into something positive. Although his life ended much too soon, his legacy lives on through Pennies From Heaven and the families we assist,” said Nichole.
