Dawson & Carter’s Story

In the two weeks leading up to Dawson’s diagnosis, we had no idea what was going on. All of the symptoms were innocuous. Dawson had been drinking a lot of water. We had written it off to being winter time. We were all drinking water due to the dry air in the house. He was moody. Well he was a three year old… Click here to continue reading Dawson and Carter’s Story…

Successful Fundraiser

The Fundraiser for Evie took place Friday, March 9, 2018. The event was a huge success and it’s because of the many individuals and businesses who pulled resources together to make it possible. $7,000 raised in one evening between ticket sales and silent auction items.

Big thanks to The Westin Richmond for hosting! Rachel Leyco not only had an amazing show, but she also helped with all the announcements throughout the evening!

Tricia & Lauren helped us pull together items for the silent auction; they also made sure we were getting the word out on social media. They were the first two we approached about having the event and were immediately on board to come together and make it happen!

The Westin Richmond was so AMAZING to work with. They provided an amazing venue and staff, they coordinated and prepared the food, provided the DJ, photo booth and more.

Dr. Sarah Wilmer with Manakin Sabot Dentistry and Tammy from the Green Kitchen approached us just a week or so before the event to offer resources for food. The contributions they made ensured we had enough food since we had more than exceeded our goal for ticket sales.

Many thanks to everyone else who chipped in by attending, volunteering, and donating items and services to the auction. We love RVA and this event was the perfect example of just how amazing our community truly is!

Many have asked for the go fund me page.

Thank you again for being a part of this event it meant so much to us at Knight Magee Insurance to see our clients, friends and other local businesses rally together to support The Poland’s.

 


Baby Evie Fundraiser Update

Category : Community , Fundraising , General , KMI

This week we got a glimpse of the evening’s menu and again The Westin Richmond has gone ABOVE and BEYOND!  When the Westin agreed to donate space for the event I think we all thought it was just that, a venue… but boy were we wrong… they are also providing food (Dr. Sarah Wilmer DDS has also made a generous monetary donation toward the cost of food), a cash bar, a DJ, a videographer who has created a video detailing Evie’s story, a photo booth, staff, and ongoing support to help iron out all the fine details.

In addition to The Westin Richmond, close family friends Tricia Norris and Lauren White have helped with organizing the silent auction. Together we’ve secured services and/or items from over 34 local RVA businesses.

And we can’t forget Rachel Leyco… 

Rachel will be performing at the event. Rachel, a Richmond Native, has been in the Richmond music scene for over a decade, she is a singer and songwriter, and in my opinion one of the most talented performers in RVA!

When we discussed organizing a fundraiser for the Poland’s I don’t think we realized its true potential and here we are less than a week away with almost 98 tickets sold. I’m in awe and I can’t thank everyone enough for the support. When the community comes together for a cause it’s powerful. We all have something to contribute and together we’re making a difference.
