Since the last newsletter, LDSF families have hosted events across the US, helping to build awareness and raise funds for research. We raised more than $10,000 from the following events: Connor Wilson's 5th birthday (West Virginia), Pass the Boot for Loeys-Dietz organized by Tina Gee (Georgia), Dining for Loeys-Dietz organized by the Padilla family (Illinois), Abby's Amazing Race organized by the Kemmer family (Arkansas), Pots for a Purpose organized by the Kasper family (Illinois), and a potluck in honor of Nicole Reiner hosted by her aunt, Stacey Levine (Florida).
We are grateful to the Kasper family for hosting the 2nd Annual "LDS Families from Around the World"
holiday tree trimming event at the Brookfield zoo last weekend. If you are in the Chicagoland area, please stop by.
Our special thanks to the family of Barbara Ann Quade for designating the LDSF to receive donations in her memory.
If you have an idea for an event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd be happy to work with you on it!
