"Dream On" Kathy Seastedt Memorial Fund 2012
It’s almost that time of the year where the Flying Flamingos will head out on Thanksgiving morning to run the annual 8K Turkey Trot in Buffalo, NY. The Flamingos are not only known for their pink feathers and funky flare but most importantly for their FUNraising abilities! The Flamingos have chosen to raise money for a very important cause-The "Dream On" Kathy Seastedt Memorial Fund. Because of last year’s success, The Flamingo's have adopted this essential cause yet again! This fund was created by The Resource Center and the TRC Foundation and is used to provide urgent or supplemental assistance to people with disabilities in Chautauqua County. The "Dream On" Fund helps to provide services and supports that enable persons with disabilities to become independent, productive, participating members of society.
In the last year 65 people were assisted through this fund. Many more qualified for the services but unfortunately the monies ran out before all could be served. Because this fund is so beneficial and in such high demand we need YOUR help! Our goal is to be able to reach everyone's need in the upcoming year! The volume and testimonies of the "Dream On" Fund success stories are inspiring to us all. Our goal is to have no one in need left behind. Donations have helped individuals purchase items to transition to independent living, buy clothing for new employment opportunities and pay for emergency medical care- to name only a few, but all of which have made positive changes in someone's life, and the difference in “independence.”
The Flamingos have chosen to support the Dream On Fund as it assists a deserving population right here in Chautauqua County. It also holds a special place close to our hearts as Kathy Seastedt was one of our flamingo's sister and by helping this population we are also honoring Kathy's life's work, which was dedicating her time to these individuals. Please help the Flamingos not only celebrate Kathy's memory but most importantly continue to help improve the lives of the clientele she served! Your generosity will not go unnoticed as your contribution will touch someone’s' life in a meaningful way.
Online donation is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support our fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
