Is there an event you'd like for us to attend? Want to host an event with us? Contact us!
On March 28th, our Co-Founder and husband received news that no parent should ever have to hear: "Your child has cancer." Their 10 year old son, Bennett, was diagnosed with a fairly rare form of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma called Nodular Lymphocyte-Predomanant Hodgkin Lymphoma (only 8 cases diagnosed in the US each year!). The family lived in Ridgefield, CT but just moved to NH this year so, as a surprise, LGAR would like for kids of all age groups to create cards to send to Bennett.
We have organized a card making workshop at Serene Escape Spa on Saturday, April 27th from 2-4pm. Paper, markers, stickers, etc., will all be provided, as well as nut-free snacks for the kids. All ages can attend! You don't have to be from RIdgefield, CT to participate. If you're unable to attend, the kids can create cards at home and, once completed, the cards can be dropped off at Serene Escape Spa in Ridgefield, CT during business hours (sereneescapespa.com/contact). Daniela Raciti, Director of Marketing and Operations, will then pick them up and mail them to Bennett.
In case you are not near Ridgefield, CT and would like to participate, feel free to mail the cards to:
PO Box 1175, Ridgefield, CT 06877
If you'd like to send Bennett or his family anything additional, you are more than welcome to bring it to the workshop, leave it at the spa for Daniela to send, or you can mail it to our PO Box. Feel free to reach out to Daniela with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
