I wanted to take a minute to give everyone a heads up about an upcoming event. Our friend, Trent has decided to take on a huge project of organizing a fundraiser to benefit two charities.
Some friends of ours have a smiley little boy named Baker. Baker is 4 years old and is living with Menkes disease. You can read about this little hero HERE. Half of the proceeds from the event will benefit the NIH Menkes research, and the other half (in honor of Taysen) will benefit the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation for SMA research.
There will be dinner and an auction and it will be at The Reserve in Lynden. If anybody is able and willing to donate anything, please let me know and I will get you in contact with Trent! It could be a service, item, tickets.. anything really! This is a great opportunity to enjoy a night out and also help out with funding research for SMA and Menkes.
