An Evening with Eric LeGrand 2015!
Thank you again for making our 3rd Annual An Evening with Eric LeGrand another enormous success! Newroads Financial Group was, once again, extremely pleased with the outpouring of support we received for Team LeGrand and Eric’s mission to raise awareness for a spinal cord injury cure. Eric’s inspiring speech left us all with even more hope that a cure is coming and he will be ready for it! Hearing from Eric’s therapist Buffy about the amazing tenacity and effort put into his recovery every single day is a testament to his positive attitude and the commitment of a wonderfully supportive team! And this year we had additional special guests in attendance, Mikey Nichols and his mom, Christine. Mikey and Eric have formed a special bond since Mikey’s accident and the funds raised will undoubtedly fund future research that could benefit both Eric and Mikey.
Eric’s team, the Reeve Foundation’s team and the Newroads team make an amazing Team together! As a result of your support of our joint efforts, we will be presenting Team LeGrand with a little over $40,000! Our goal was to reach the $100,000 mark for a combined total of our last three years and with your help, we’ve gone above and beyond our goal once again. Every year we have been able to exceed our own expectations with your generous support and we are so grateful! The last three years have brought in over $105,000 in donations to find a cure for spinal cord injuries.
As always, The Reeve Foundation was wonderfully helpful and supportive. We were honored to have nine members of their team in attendance including President and CEO, Peter Wilderotter. Their assistance was invaluable and seen as a confirmation that we are doing our part, and as Peter said, to put them out of business by finding a cure.
For those who were unable to attend please watch this brief video about the amazing research and results taking place in the search for a cure. http://vimeo.com/107874293
We want to send a very special thank you to all of you who attended, all who were unable to attend but generously sent in donations, those who forwarded our invitation to friends or colleagues you felt may have been interested or sent special notes of encouragement for us to pass along to Eric. An event of this nature requires a lot of time, phone calls, detailed planning and commitment to our goal. We are so grateful to have received so many encouraging well wishes for a successful evening.
Newroads Financial Group is proud to form lifelong relationships with our clients. It was very humbling to see so many of you in attendance. Additionally, there were many guests in attendance that we had not met previously. We tried to spend as much time as possible with each of you, but if we did not have a chance to speak with you, we hope that you felt welcomed and enjoyed yourselves. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our work and the “Newroads experience,” we would welcome the opportunity to speak with you – please call or e-mail us.
