How would you like to win a unique 1/1000 NY Giants football signed by not one, not two, but the entire 2010 team? Or how about an overnight stay at the Great Wolf Lodge valued at $500? Now you can.
McMullen’s Restaurant on Market Street in Scranton, PA will be hosting A Miracle for Ava Event this Sunday, August 14th from 2-5 pm.
Ava is a four-year-old girl who experienced a seizure last November, followed by a major stroke which led to a coma. She was immediately air-lifted to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia where she remained for nearly three long months. Fortunately, Ava woke from her coma but the doctors told her family that she had a Difuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an inoperable brain tumor located in the middle of the brain stem.
In order to help Ava and her family, MaryBeth and Bridget Barrett, daughters of Road Scholar Transport owner Jim Barrett, assembled a committee to create an event in which all proceeds would be donated towards travel and medical expenses for Ava and her parents.
The event will include appetizers, soft drinks, draft beer, music, and your chance of winning great raffle baskets including:
-ZOOM Whitening from Hazzori Dental ($750 value)
-Toy Watch Donated by Boccardo’s ($250 value)
-IPod Nano ($170 value)
-Autographed Bat and Ball Signed by the Entire Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Team
-Douney & Bourke Beach Bag
-Gift Cards to Restaurants, Food Stores, etc.
-Family Fun Night
-And Much More!!!
Raffle tickets for the NY Giants Autographed Football, D & B Bag, and Toy Watch cost $5 per chance with all other raffles costing $5 for 3 tickets or 10 for $15.
Also at the event, Road Scholar Transport will be debuting a new addition to its awareness program…“A Miracle for Ava & a Cure for Brain Tumors” trailer. Displaying bright Spring colors, this trailer features young Ava innocently sitting in the grass staring at a butterfly that landed on her finger.
Tickets for the event cost $20 per person (children 10 & under are free) which can be purchased at the door or bought in advance by contacting Marybeth at email@example.com or Bridget at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 800-542-2301.
You can also make a monetary donation to Ava’s family at any PennStar bank under “Friends of Ava Gioe,” or through their website at http://miracleforava.info/.
