Macy’s Miracle 6th Annual Fundraiser

Macy’s Miracle 6th Annual Fundraiser was held on May 22nd, 2011

We raised $20,126!

We cannot thank you all enough for your support of Macy’s Miracle Foundation and our fight to cure Juvenile Dermatomyositis! Over the past three years raising money in our economy has been increasing difficult. However, you have made it possible for us to raise an amazing amount of money and we have now surpassed $200, 000.00 raised by Macy’s Miracle Foundation to support JDM research at Children’s Memorial Hospital, in Chicago Illinois!

Our army of volunteers worked all day Saturday, in order to prepare for the big event! Thanks to Jackie, Carisa, Janet, Kim, Betsy, and Carmen for sacrificing their time to help make our auction items the best Manatee County has ever seen! And special thanks to Andy Minor for his tireless pursuit of our corporate donors and the brilliant PR campaign.

The grand finale came at 4:00 when the $10,000.00 cash prize Raffle ticket was pulled. Congratulations to Larry Tierney of Tampa, Florida!!! Larry had winning raffle ticket # 1164. We were able to deliver Larry’s check to him on May 27th 2011. Thanks to him and all of you that bought raffle tickets, Macy’s Miracle Foundation delivered a check for $20,126 to support Dr. Pachman’s JDM research team at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago, IL.

We cannot say thank enough to all of you that contributed items for our auctions and raffles. Thanks to each of you, we had a full day of awesome prizes for one and all to win! Our appreciation to all of you that purchased these items, as well as, those that bought the $10,000.00 raffle tickets!

Special thanks to Woody’s River Roo! We are grateful to the Woodring family, for welcoming us each year and allowing us to share their beautiful view of the river to be the back drop for our fundraiser.
Our 6th Annual Event, held at Woody’s River Roo in Ellenton Florida, raised $20,126.00 that has been donated to Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago IL. This donation is used for the sole purpose of research towards a cure for Juvenile Dermatomyositis.

Macy’s Miracle Foundation is looking forward to our 7th Annual Event on May 19th 2012! We hope that you will continue to support our efforts to find a cure for JDM!

God Bless You All!
Rachel, John, Macy and all of the Macy’s Miracle Volunteers
