There is an amazing family that has children at the school I work at. One of their children has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Instead of letting this chronic illness wear them down, the family has gone on a very proactive journey. They created a non-profit called John Owen’s Great Adventure, Inc. to raise funds for organizations in order to fund research for cures for neuromuscular illnesses, and to raise more awareness. If you’re a local Clevelander, one of their biggest fundraisers is a picnic with lots of raffles, auctions, a texas hold em’ tournament, live music and other fun events.
I’m sending these goodies off as prizes, so if you want to win them go give some money to the cause!
There are a lot of amazing items being raffled or auctioned off including VIP concert tickets, a laptop, artwork, sports memorabilia, and more!The raffle list is simply staggering!
The picnic takes place on Friday July 29, 2011 from 5-11 p.m. at German Central, 7863 York Road, Parma Ohio It would make a great way to spend one of your Summer evenings, and wouldn’t it be even better to know your entertainment money will go to such a great cause!
