Party for Life in Memory of Peter Careccia
Friday, March 21, 2014 from 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM (EDT)
New Hyde Park, NY
The Party for Life celebrates the true meaning of life, remembers those we love who have lost their battle and continues the fight with your help. Please join us in our commitment to helping others by donating an auction item. Proceeds from the auction will allow us to do MoRE to provide an opportunity for kids with childhood cancer to just be kids while receiving the medical attention they need from pediatric oncology professionals during a week long camp program in August on the beautiful shore of Shelter Island.
The cost to send one child to camp is $2,500; in 2013, there were 147 kids who had the opportunity to put aside their struggles and just be a kid. We can just begin to imagine just how the donations from the Party for Life contributed to this wonderful program! MoRE Camp Adventure provides an opportunity for patients and siblings to reconnect and share a positive experience together. It provides support and camaraderie to both patients and siblings, while also offering a respite for parents.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Mary Ann Mills: 516.322.4354 / email@example.com or Melissa Firmes: 631.608.3135 / Melissa.firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also learn more about MoRE at www.kidsneedmore.org. Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to hearing from you.
