FUND RAISER: Uno Chicago Grill 10/13/11

Hello,

My name is Theresa from Uno Chicago Grill.  My friends, Michelle and Ernesto were in a serious car accident.  He was lucky to not sustained any outward injuries but Michelle was not so fortunate.  She has been in the hospital since July 31st.  They were coming around a corner a and hit a pole which ejected Michelle from the car. 

 
Michelle was rushed to the hospital with two broken bones in her neck and a broken pallet.  Fortunately, her teeth were not knocked out.  Surgery was done on her neck to repair the broken bones and a wire was placed to hold her teeth in place, hopefully she will not lose them; once her pallet heals, the doctors will know better.  

We are planning a fund raiser to help Michelle with the many medical bills resulting from this accident.   She does have insurance but many things are not covered.   She is a single mom with two children, ages 13 and 6.  The fund raiser is planned for October 13th at:

 
Uno’s Chicago Grill

Legg Calve Perthes Disease: Benefit for Jim Burke

Jim BurkeOn May 14, 2011 the family and friends of Jim Burke, from West Mayfair, will be hosting a fundraiser in hopes to raise money to help ease some of the financial burdens and costs during Jim’s battle of a rare degenerative bone disease called Legg Calve Perthes Disease. He is a 16 year old sophomore who attends Father Judge High School.

Jim was diagnosed with this rare disease when he was five, and since then he was underwent some extensive operations, but finally in 2005 he was given the clear and reassured he could be as active as he wanted and that he would not encounter any problems till much later in life. With that being said he joined the track team for Resurrection of Our Lord in 8th grade. He placed 1st in the city for the Philadelphia and 8th in the state for the Penn Relays along with other high placements in other relays. Jim is a Varsity wrestler for Judge; he works at it year round. He loved attending wrestling camps to improve himself, because he wanted to be the best. Jim received “Best Novice Wrestler” his freshman year and despite everything he has been through Jim has grown into an amazing young man who works hard at everything and gives his all to anything he puts his mind to. He is an Honor Student and has ranked 88 in a class of 278.

Presently the doctor told him that he can no longer wrestle or do his daily routine. Jim needs to undergo a major operation to restructure and rebuild his hip. He is no longer allowed to bear weight and must use crutches or a wheelchair to get around, and attends physical therapy three times a week. After his surgery it will take Jim three months before he can walk again and nine months before he will be rehabilitated. His mother Stephanie recently lost her job due to the economy and this is going to make the emotional struggle over the next year also a financial struggle. Many handicap modifications need to be made to the home.

Fundraiser: Dash for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness

Gift of Life Dash for Organ Donor AwarenessWould you like to help raise awareness & money for the Gift of Life Donor Program?

TEAM TARA is participating in honor of Tara O’Brien who was an organ donor after being killed by a drunk driver in 1996.

TARA’S STORY:  (In brief) Tara was born on November 24, 1971 to Joe and Fran O’Brien. She grew up in the Wissinoming section of Philadelphia with her parents and a younger brother, Joe. She attended Saint Bartholomew Grade School and Little Flower High School. She attended some college classes at Community College of Philadelphia and was last employed at the Naval Depot on Oxford Avenue. Tara had spunk and spark. She loved being a mom to her two girls Colleen and Theresa.

Tara enjoyed watching the Flyers play. She went out during the playoffs to catch a game at Chickie and Petes on Robbins Avenue and had dinner with her boyfriend. They left when the game was going into overtime to catch the rest at home which was less than 5 minutes away.

That was April 18, 1996. In an unfortunate turn of events, she was the only one in her car when she was struck at the intersection of Harbison and Charles Streets by a van driven by a drunk driver. After a week long stay in Intensive care, her severe injuries took her life on April 26, 1996.

She is survived by her two daughters who were 2 and 4 years old at the time, her parents, her grandmother, her brother, her niece and nephew (both born since she passed away), and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. The family and friends of Tara are participating in the Dash and raising money for the Gift of Life through individual sponsors and their own participation.

TEAM TARA is a way to keep Tara’s memory alive for all of us. Tara’s spunk and spark lives and reigns in the veins of her two awesome daughters! Each year we can utilize this great event to stop and reminisce about her specifically. Last years turn out was tremendous. Please join our team or support us if you can’t be there.

We hope to celebrate her memory further at a post-race/walk event where additional monies will be raised for this great cause, a cause that gives families like ours a chance to celebrate Tara’s heroic efforts even at the time of her death to help save others.

We ask if you could please support us and our goal by making a small donation to support this wonderful program. Please Visit TEAM TARA’S PAGE if you can help in any way or to learn more about Donor Awareness and the Gift of Life.

POST RACE EVENT:
1PM Sunday 4/17/11 at Chickie and Pete’s on the Roosevelt Boulevard
You pay for a bracelet.  Portions go directly to Gift of Life donor program and buffet and drinks.
Pricing details to follow.  Please join us!
