The Extraordinary Give is Lancaster County's Largest Day of Giving. For the past five years, in just 120 hours of giving, the Extraordinary Give has raised $22.5 million for more than 500 organizations! This year, on November 17, 2017, every dollar donated will be stretched by at least a HALF MILLION DOLLARS in stretch pool and prizes from the Lancaster County Community Foundation and Sponsors. Mark your calendars to donate and help us go the EXTRA mile.
We cannot thank Dr. Satish A. Shah, Director of Medical Oncology at Gettysburg Cancer Center, enough for his commitment to be an Angel of Faith Sponsor at $5,000. All money will be used to help families in Adams County that are being treated at the Gettysburg Cancer Center who, because of cancer, cannot work and therefore cannot pay their bills. Dr. Shah spoke eloquently at our walk on October 14th and we are looking forward to continuing our partnership long into the future.
Vickie's Angel Foundation would like to thank Valerie Stewart and Bob Hauer at Community Aid for their generous grant donation of $5,000! Wow, that will help many families. We are also appreciative of the free Community Aid shopping cards that are provided to our foundation each quarter for families in need. We are making a difference.
The 10th annual Tom's Ride was a success this year, even as Tom Conway continued to fight his battle with cancer in hospice. It is with a heavy heart, that this year Vickie's Angel Foundation lost a true friend in that Tom became an angel on ???
Tom had a tremendous enjoyment of biking, and proposed an idea of a bike ride to benefit Vickie's Angels. His idea "to ride for a cause", to date, has raised over ??? to help other local families in need.
Our hearts go out to Billie and Jessie Conway, and will always remember the generous and kind nature of Tom.
Vickie's Angels was the proud recipient of $2,000 from the Greater Harrisburg Association of Realtors Foundation, which financially supports non-profit charitable organizations with a housing and shelter related focus. Thank you for helping us to help others.
A big thank you to Redland Cheerleaders for once again supporting Vickie's Angel Foundation through their Pink Out game, raffles and donations. Brooke Minnich, above with the pink bow, is a freshman cheerleader at Redland and is pictured alongside her sister Sarah. Mickey is very proud that his granddaughters are carrying the Vickie's Angel Foundation mission into the future.
A big thank you to the West Shore Rotary Club for their $1,000 donation! Every dollar will go to local families in need.
Andrews Patel continues their support of Vickie's Angel Foundation, by most recently allowing their Hematology Department to arrange a dress down day, with all donations collected for VAF. Andrews Patel donations total over $20,000 each YEAR... and we do not know what we would do without them. You are the best!
