Our 2nd Annual An Evening with Eric LeGrand was an enormous success!
Newroads Financial Group was, once again, extremely pleased with the outpouring of support we received for Team LeGrand and their mission to raise awareness for a spinal cord injury cure. Karen’s beautiful speech gave an insight as to where Eric’s positive attitude, strength and personable nature come from. Their devotion to each other is a testament to F.A.M.I.L.Y. (Forget About Me I Love You). Eric’s inspiring speech left us all with even more hope that a cure is coming and he will be ready for it!
As a result of everyone’s support and our teams’ efforts we will be presenting Team LeGrand with a little over $40,000! We were certainly hoping to exceed our efforts from last year of just under $25,000 and with everyone’s generosity, we smashed that number! We continue to be asked for information about making additional donations and are hopeful this number will continue to climb.
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 Wilder otter. Their assistance was invaluable and seen as a confirmation that we are doing our part. 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.
