Maxie's Birthday Benefit - October 20, 2013 - Golden Road Brewing

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Please join us on Sunday, October 20, 2013 from 10:30 am - 2 pm at Golden Road Brewing for Maxie's Birthday Benefit supporting Maxie's First Candle Fund.  It will be a really fun day and a special way to raise important funds for SIDS research and awareness in honor of Maxie's third birthday. 

Golden Road is an awesome place that Ted and I love (and if you've been there, I am sure you love it too).  They have a great lawn area for kids to play and delicious food and they brew their own tasty beer.  We are so lucky that they are opening their doors for us, giving us everything at cost and donating Chloe's - their private event space

Event Day:
10:30 am - 12 pm - Supervised kids activities (with sitter services donated by urbansitter.com) on the side lawn - face painting, arts and crafts, games and more!
10:30 am - 2 pm - Silent Auction, food and pitchers of beer inside.
Also - Toy Drive for children in need!

How you can help:
There are four ways to help us honor Maxie's memory on his third birthday.

1) COME TO OUR EVENT!!  Mark your calendars now!  Plan on bringing your whole family!

2) Bring an unwrapped toy, still in its packaging to the event.  We will be distributing toys to patients at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.  You can learn more about their toy program by clicking HERE.

3) Contribute to our silent auction.  We already have an awesome list of items but we need more.  Think about who you know who might be willing to contribute great items including (but not limited to):
  • Vacation homes, timeshares, hotel stays, airline miles
  • Dining experiences
  • Wine packages
  • Kids classes and activities
  • Concert, Theater, Movie tickets
  • Apparel, accessories, jewelry
  • Collectors Items
  • Unique experiences
Contact Abby at teddyabby at gmail dot com to contribute!
4) Consider sponsoring the event!  This is a big one.  Remember, your contribution to First Candle is tax deductible and it can be a nice PR opportunity for your business.  The more we raise in sponsorships, the more event money can go straight to First Candle.  A list of sponsorship opportunities is at the bottom of this post.

Thank you so much for helping us to honor Maxie's spirit.  This is SO important to us.  It helps us to continue to parent him, even though he isn't physically with us anymore.   It occupies our minds during a time that is especially difficult for us, and helps to lift the burden a bit.
