An Evening with Eric LeGrand 2018!
Dear Valued Clients, Friends and Family,
We can’t bELieve it is already time again for Newroads Financial Group to proudly present An Evening with Eric LeGrand. This year’s event will be held Thursday night 10.25.18!
Eric LeGrand continues to inspire the world as a dedicated fighter in the battle for spinal cord initiatives and spinal cord injury cure. Please join us as Eric brings his message of courage, perseverance and strength. This year’s event will include some new and exciting additions we know you will love, whether you’re joining us for the 1st time or the 6th! Details are still being finalized and we’ll send updates once they are all set.
Newroads Financial Group started An Evening with Eric LeGrand in 2013 originally thinking it would be a one-time initiative to help raise funds and awareness. As Eric’s goal of raising over $1,000,000 has been met and we are extraordinarily proud to have helped raised over $200,000 in the last 5 years with this event. We know we can help Team LeGrand keep right on going toward a cure– with your help!
Our entire team has become more involved with The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and we are eager to make 2018 our best year yet! The live auction will once again be hosted by Chris Carlin and we have great things planned. Our auction list is shaping up to be amazing with a broad array of items for everyone!
As always, Newroads Financial Group is funding all costs associated with this event and 100% of your donations will go directly to finding a cure for SCI (Spinal Cord Injury). Our goal is to keep the evening intimate and seats are going to be limited. This event will sell out early and we have already had a great response from supporters who attended previously. Please RSVP at your earliest convenience! We truly hope to see you and your guests at this worthwhile fundraising event.
If you cannot attend, we hope you will strongly consider any donation your budget may allow to support the cure for SCI. If you have any items, experiences or packages you would like to donate for auction, please let us know! As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office. You can register (or make a donation) at https://give.reeve.org/event/an-evening-with-eric-legrand. Eric’s foundation, “Team LeGrand” was established in 2013 as a subsidiary of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. All proceeds raised go toward research to find a cure for paralysis and improving the quality of life for people with a spinal cord injury.
Also be certain to like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/AnEveningWithEricLeGrand where we will be providing additional updates on auction items and on our website https://www.newroadsfinancial.com/team-legrand for the evening’s details.

All Our Best,

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.

All of us at Newroads enjoyed every minute of planning and hosting this event! We are very proud of our team’s efforts and cannot wait to begin planning next year’s event! We have our sights set on even loftier goals and hope to see all of you there!
