We offer our sincere gratitude to those who attended our annual Patchwork Benefit on Saturday, April 14.
This year's event was another success for our clinic. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we raised approximately $90,000. Your continuing support enables us to further our clinic's mission and help children grow up to live healthy, happy and productive lives.
A record-breaking crowd of 290 Patchwork guests enjoyed a celebratory evening of food, fellowship, music, auctions and Amish hymns.
The evening began with a special tribute to Frann R. Zverina, who served on our board of directors for seven years. We're grateful to Frann for her generosity, dedication to our mission and unwavering commitment to improving the lives of special children.
After dinner, Dr. Heng Wang, our clinic's medical director, presented a program about our work with patient families who are affected by SAMS Association, a rare condition that puts children at risk for early-onset stroke.
Thanks to all of our many friends who supported our Patchwork Benefit, including Sue Taylor from Burton Floral & Garden, Inc. for the beautiful centerpieces and Pat Preston of Preston Superstore for generously lending a cargo van to move donations back and forth.
We look forward to seeing you all again at our next Patchwork Benefit in April 2019.
We are grateful to the businesses and individuals who supported this year's Patchwork Benefit.
