The Lovin’ Every Day Foundation’s inaugural benefit on September 21st, 2019 was a big success! We couldn’t have made this happen without all of you, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you to those of you who bought tickets to come, those that bought tickets and couldn’t come, and those that made donations. You all helped in making our first event a success.
A big shout out to the Reid Barn, Johnson-Lambe Co., Signs of Significance, Core Physique, Aesthetic Specialty Centre, Grit and Grace, Provenance Rehab, Kristie Divinski, Stacy Gardella, Damien Shine, Margaret Townsend, Joy Mobley, Gordie Warren, Gordon Warren, and Allison Fillmore from the PGA Tour. All of you were so gracious in helping us with our planning, organizing and success.
Dr. Robert Campbell, MD and Richard Lamphier, RN from Project S.A.V.E were phenomenal speakers in helping our guests understand sudden cardiac arrest and the need for CPR/AED training and quick response times in our communities.
We concluded the evening with some great entertainment from a wonderful band, Mud Tire Mafia. They had our guests engaged and dancing and we were grateful to have such talented musicians join us on this memorable evening.
We are so proud of the work that has been done during our inaugural year as an organization. We are eager to all that is to come in the following year and beyond. In 2019, we have been able to provide AEDs (automated external defibrillators) to families in need, bring much needed awareness around cardiac conditions to the community, provide funds for cardiac research to the Mayo Clinic and SADS (Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome), provide funds to Project S.A.V.E and provide the resources available to families/sports organizations to ensure CPR/AED training.
In 2020, we will continue to provide AEDs to families in need, bring awareness to cardiac conditions and provide funding for research. Our ongoing work will bring us out into the community more in 2020 and beyond. We are now able to provide CPR/AED training directly from our foundation from our very own trained instructor, Anne LeMoyne. Our goal is to create a community of first responders. Not only adults but children too. We will target schools, sports teams, church groups, girl scout and boy scout troops and babysitters. Prevention is key and knowing how to respond in an emergency saves lives. Research suggests that students as young as 9 years old will retain these life saving skills.
We will be announcing the date for our second annual Lovin’ Every Day Foundation benefit in the near future. Keep an eye out! In the meantime, we hope you are excited to be on this journey with us. We value and appreciate all your contributions and friendships! Go forward and love every day.
Anne and Kevin
