A very successful fundraiser for Preston Scibek…

4 10 2010

last month at Four Seasons Sports Complex in Hampstead, MD.

An aggressive goal was set to raise $5000 for Preston.  Many people came out and donated and not only was the goal reached, but exceeded to $6800!!

Last year, during Thanksgiving week, 10 year-old Preston Scibek, of Hampstead, MD found out he had cancer. He has been very strong and brave as he’s battled it this past year. It’s a very rare cancer, but they’ve had a great team of doctors that have been working hard to cure him. They’ve been through tremendous challenges to fight this unfair disease. Preston is currently in Boston with his beautiful mom, Shareen, undergoing 6 weeks of Proton radiation. Even though his dad, Scott, and his brother Grant, are home in Hampstead, the family has worked hard at being an amazing team.
I love this boy and his family and hope that you will take a moment to check out Preston’s story.  Please click here to visit his CaringBridge site to read his story.

I would like to thank Four Season Sports Complex for reaching out the way they do for their community.  Thank you and all of the generous people that helped raise money for this beautiful family.

Pam Long Photography donated a gift certificate for a free photo session and wall portrait.  I was hoping that Preston could be the one that would reach in the bag and pull out the winner.  He and his mom had to leave for Boston while the fundraising event was still being held so Preston wasn’t able to pick the winning entry.  Then we thought that Grant, Preston’s brother, could pick the winner….but he was at a friend’s house the day I met Scott to draw the winner.  So…….I had both of my daughter’s with me when I met with Scott.  Of course, to keep it fair to them, we had BOTH of them pick a winner.  2 winners instead of 1, a nice bonus!!
