$37,000…THAT is the astounding amount Party With A Purpose generated for SMA research! Thanks just doesn’t seem like enough as I am feeling so blessed and grateful to have so many wonderful friends & family who supported our efforts! Thank you to all who made a donation, attended the event, became a corporate sponsor, gave a donation for our raffle or those who went out there and got donations from their friends and family…wow! I believe my cousin said it best when she shared this quote from Margaret Mead…”Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Thank you from my family, FightSMA and all those fighting to beat SMA!
Party With A Purpose 2013 was held at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond, VA, on May 17. Over 140 attendees enjoyed the beautiful evening outdoors, with entertainment provided by DJ Bill “Evryday” Holliday. A highlight of the evening was the raffle, which included 40 amazing prize packages, all donated by area businesses. FightSMA extends heartfelt thanks all those in the Richmond/Hanover County community who continue to support our fight to end spinal muscular atrophy.
