A Fundraiser close to my heart

Tomorrow the locals MOMS Club of Brentwood will be hosting a Bunco night fundraiser at Deer Ridge Golf Course for my student Shayne Hanson. He is the sweetest 6-year- old you'll ever want to meet. He also has the cutest dimples you've ever seen!

Shayne was born prematurely with paralyzed vocal cords and struggled to breathe for the first 6 months of his life. He has lived with a feeding tube practically his entire life and flies back and forth to Childrens' Hospital of Cincinnati where specialists have tried to correct his airway.

The fundraiser's goal is to help pay for Shayne's family's staggering medical bills that have accumulated over the years.

If you're local to the area, please try to attend or send a donation if possible. The Bunco night starts at 7pm. Tickets are $25 with a no-host bar, appetizers, raffle and silent auction. All proceeds benefit the family.

For more information contact Alyssa Madden at 925-628-7949. Hope to see you there!
