what Leprechauns do to help make a difference
We’d like to thank everyone who helped make the 6th Annual Tee’d Off: For the Kids Golf Outing held on Saturday, August 20th at Bob-O-Link on Center Road in Avon, Ohio, possible.
And we mean everyone. Whether you came and played and enjoyed the contests, prizes, food and drink or helped with donations, sponsored a hole or helped keep the whole thing running smoothly, you all have our sincerest gratitude.
And a very special thank you to Katie Wilson, for once again organizing a great event and allowing The Leprechaun Foundation to be the recipient of the proceeds from her 6th Annual Tee'd Off: For the Kids Golf Outing. We can't say thank you enough for the wonderful job you and the event coordinators did. Bravo.
Last year the Leprechauns were the recipients of the proceeds from Katie Wilson’s 5th Annual Tee’d Off: For the Kids Golf Outing. She did an amazing job! And through her efforts and that of the volunteers she enlisted to help, raised enough money for us to grant many wishes.
A Masquerade Ball themed birthday party was held for Joann on her 18th birthday in November 2015. The party was held at Eastlake community center with 75 people including friends and family attending. Joann has been in a wheelchair due to amputation of her leg as a result of liver disease. She has had 2 liver transplants and unfortunately is now near death.
We purchased an iPad for a 16-year-old drive by shooting victim that has been in MetroHealth Medical Center for a month and will be there for many more bowel surgeries,
We purchased a new bed, desk, lamp and other items for a 15-year-old girls bedroom. She is on her second round of chemotherapy and has lost her hair because if it. Her mom said some boys at school pulled off her wig; she thinks some girls put them up to it, so she doesn’t want to go to school. We gave mom money to take her shopping for a new wig.
We sent 41 different kids to Cavs games. They had great times and most had a chance to meet the players.
We paid for parties at MetroHealth System and gave $2000 to the sickle cell gang at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. The money was used to do their August backpack, book bag and school supply event. We picked up the project because they lost their funding and had cookies for them as well. We’re going to do it again this year.
