We are planning the 4th Annual Maeci & Gracie “Give Back” Softball Tournament to raise funds so that we can “GIVE BACK” a wish to another child. The date that we have decided to hold the tournament is May 17, 2014 at the Avon, Indiana Softball Park and we would be grateful if you considered sponsoring this event.
Maeci and Gracie had a busy 2013! They granted their 9th wish, were chosen as “shopping buddies” to a child whose wish they granted, were inducted into the Indiana Red Cross Hall of Fame, presented awards during the 2013 Riley Annual Luncheon and were on WZPL during the Make-A-Wish Request-A-Thon for the 3rd year in a row. We continue to pray for busy years ahead!
Here’s a little background to explain why we feel strongly about “Giving Back”:
Maeci and Gracie met in May 2010 during chemo at Riley Children’s Hospital. Maeci, now 14, was diagnosed in April 2010 with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and is now in remission. Gracie, now 6, was diagnosed in February 2010 with Oligoastrocytoma, a brain tumor and is currently stable. Since then they have become best friends, more like sisters. We were blessed to meet each other and our families have grown close. We were also blessed by the Make-A-Wish Foundation® to travel to Walt Disney World® together in November 2010. Maeci’s wish was granted and Gracie decided that she wanted to join Maeci. So, the Indiana Regional Make-A-Wish Foundation® made it happen! We had a wonderful time and we want to “Give Back” and help grant the wish of another very deserving child. We have been able to grant 9 wishes and we want to continue granting wishes!
