Special Thanks to John Hughes
A friend of ours and a fellow parent at Ana’s school, John Hughes, raised over $600 for Ana from a recent gig he performed at in Rosendale. He posted this comment on the home page, but I wanted to make sure everyone sees it, so I’m reposting here:
“Hi Jackie and all y’all,
As you heard, we turned my impromptu solo show at Rosendale Cafe’ on Saturday (Sept 9) into a last minute “door proceeds” fundraiser. Very few folks knew about it beforehand, no time for any press either, and it was pretty informal in its presentation that night.
The door take that night would have been around $280; instead, we raised $685 (that includes a $100 pledge coming Friday)! I want to thank all of those generous people for their kindness. Hi and hugs to Ana,
Thanks so much to John for raising so much money on the fly, donating the door to his solo performance, and personally hand delivering it to me on Sunday night. Thanks also to those who gave 2x (or more) the price of admission that night. I really do not have the words to express how thankful we are.
A special thanks also to all of you who have donated to Ana’s Paypal account – we are well on the way to meeting our $9000 deductible thanks to everyone’s generosity.
Finally, thanks to everyone who has given us gift cards, food, cash, a helping hand (laundry, lawn mowing, cat feeding/petting, etc.) And thank you for the much needed hugs.
