Today is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving that celebrates philanthropy and encourages people globally to do good. BennettStrong would like to thank you for the significant role you all play in fulfilling our foundation’s mission and helping support families with medically complex children, especially those in the N/ICU.
Over the past four years, BennettStrong has been able to make an immediate impact on the lives of families in the N/ICU. As families of medically complex children, we’ve come to embrace our uniqueness. We have a voice that gives a different perspective, sheds light on the lesser known, and creates a sense of wonderment of the ordinary we tend to take for granted. Last year, our goal was to support patients and families during the pandemic, while maintaining our own sense of sanity. We spent a lot of downtime on Zoom calls and emails working diligently to ensure our focus stayed on N/ICU families, children with special needs and quality education for students with disabilities.
This year, we have BIG goals – bigger than we ever imagined possible. We’ve got a million dreams for the world we’re going to make for our patients and families. We’ll be making a huge announcement at the gala in February, outlining our next big project and what you can do to help. If you’ve been to our event before, you know it’s full of music, food, laughs, tears, inspiration and amazing raffles and surprises!
This Giving Tuesday, consider purchasing tickets to our annual gala which is set for Saturday, Feb. 26, 2022 at The Warrington in Warrington, Pa. This year’s event we added a special VIP Ticket which will give you full access to our ‘VIP Guest’, Jesus Trejo, who is one of the fastest rising names in the stand-up comedy scene. Trejo will perform his comedy act during an ‘extra’ hour at the gala. VIP tickets are limited so don’t delay! For more information visit bennettstrong.org or click here to purchase tickets. General tickets are available as well and are unlimited.
