A Memoir of a Mother’s Determination and Her Micro Preemie’s Struggle to Beat the Odds
Join me on Friday June 23rd from 4 to 7 pm at Mahopac Golf and Beach Club for some fundraising in the Sun at Morgan’s FunDay!
We are having a BEACH PARTY!
Morgan’s FunDay is sponsored by The Morgan Leary Vaughan Fund and our proceeds go to the doctors and scientists who are researching ways to better treat and prevent Necrotizing Enterocolitis in premature babies.
Necrotizing Enterocolits (NEC) is a devastating disease that can take the lives of up to 50% of the premature babies who develop it. That is unacceptable to us at Morgan’ Fund and we are trying to do everything we can to stop it.
You all know that my daughter Joy was born 17 weeks early in 2012 and we know that she is alive today because of the wonderful care she received a Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital and research like this.
The Morgan Leary Vaughan Fund is named after Morgan- who lost a large portion of his intestines due to developing NEC soon, after his premature birth. Morgan is thriving today because of this research.
So… what are we doing at the beach?
We’ll have lifeguard supervised swimming in beautiful Lake Mahopac, a dinner buffet, desserts, an adult bar, ice cream bar and several fun activities.
Our activities (besides swimming!) include a DJ, games, crafts, face painting, a clown show, balloon animals, and we’ll have raffles galore!!!
Check out some of our raffle items:
Over 30 restaurants from both Putnam and Westchester have donated gift certificates so that we can raffle them off along with many gift baskets.
We also have some amazing auction items- such as 4 Total Experience Bronx Zoo Tickets & 4 Beardsley Zoo tickets, 4 ARMY Football Tickets, a Foursome to Mahopac Golf and Beach Club and more.
And your ticket automatically enters you into the Door Prize raffle for a brand new golf bag- donated by the Pro Shop at Mahopac Golf and Beach Club, and it comes with a 1 Hour Golf Lesson with the Club Pro- Billy Ashford! Plus, each adult gets one FREE DRINK ticket to use at the bar and each child gets a coupon for a FREE MEAL at Chili’s!
I’m honored to present Dr. Boriana Parvez of Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital with this year’s Lily Pedro Award for Excellence for her work in helping to establish the New York Milk Bank. The award is named after Lily Pedro- the sweet little girl who lost her life to NEC.
