A Night of Hope for Gavin – Aug. 20, 2010

Gavin’s major fundraiser, “A Night of Hope for Gavin” was truly a success which took place on Friday, August 20th, 2010 at the Hensley’s Flying Elephant Pub & Grill located in Carlsbad, California. We were so overwhelmed and overjoyed with all the positive energy and support from all the people gathered at who were all there to support Gavin. It was amazing to see lots of beautiful signs with Gavin’s picture on it and all the many people wearing “Hope for Gavin” T-shirts and bracelets. The crowd was in silence with tears and emotion as they saw an 8 minute video made which captured a glimpse of what Tay Sachs Disease is and how we care for Gavin on a daily basis. The crowd was also moved by the pictures of Gavin and Bella and our family, that was photographed by my cousin’s husband, . Thank you to ALL for your support!

from Illinois, Jannelle’s cousin, sponsored a “ ” to support Gavin and The Cure Tay-Sachs Foundation. Pls. view some of the cards that were created from all over the world. This project raised $1100 – not bad for a quick project. Thank you to everybody who participated in our Christmas Card Drive for Gavin – to all those who donated their handmade cards, to all those who bought them, and to all those who made a monetary donation.

Social Awareness

In the weeks prior to the”Night of Hope” event, friends and family made it a point to help bring awareness to this deadly disease. This was done by changing profile pictures and posting links all over their walls with Gavin’s picture. As much as there has been monetary support, educating the public one step at a time has grown slowly but surely. Most have never heard about the disease until now. News articles have been posted on various local news websites. Gavin is the first Filipino documented case of Tay-Sachs in San Diego.

Hearts for Hope Candy Bracelet Fundraiser

The CCMA (The Children’s Conservatory for Music Arts) based in San Marcos, CA is pleased to present “Hearts for Hope” Candy Bracelets that are on sale for $1 a piece. All proceeds will go towards Gavin’s care and cause.
