February 19, 2005 and April 22, 2005 Kennedy Family Holds 2 Successful Fundraisers in Indiana

 

The family of 16-month-old Sarah Kennedy held a benefit dance and silent auction at the American Legion in Tell City, Ind., on Feb. 19, raising $3,000 - WOW! And Sarah's grandfather Chris Kempf organized a golf-scramble at Eagle Valley Golf Course in Indiana on April 22nd. 124 golfers enjoyed a beautiful day out on the course, and raised $4,000 for PRF. "For our first year, we were truly blessed and many commented it was the best scramble they had ever played in", said Chris. "Even the brief rain could not dampen the enthusiasm for what everyone was doing. It was truly an honor for us to put on this event. I am humbled to have been able to do this for the foundation and for Sarah. We have already begun discussing next year's event, and we hope to double the turnout by making it an all day event. We will continue collecting money in our donut shops for progeria as well. Thank you for all you do." And thank YOU, Chris, and everyone who made these events a success!
