From: Jennifer Becker and Leon Bell, Bill and Laurie Becker
Our most sincere thank you to everyone who came out to support the “Hope for Aria” benefit held at the Black Horse on July 28. Your participation and generosity made it a huge success. Because of your charitable giving, we are much closer to reaching our financial goal for Aria’s therapy at Europeds, a nationally recognized, hospital based center that specializes in intensive physical therapy for children who have cerebral palsy.
Very special thanks to Bill and Lois Kozlowski, owners of the Black Horse, who graciously hosted the benefit and continually guided us with helpful suggestions and encouragement. They, along with Chef Andre went out of their way to help us put it all together.
Thank you to all the committee members who so willingly gave their precious time, energy and talent. Our hearts are full of love and gratitude for each and every one of you!
Additionally, many thanks to our generous donors - the businesses, the individuals who sold tickets, provided silent auction items, or made monetary donations. You all gave from your heart and we are so very grateful for everything you did.
We are blessed to have such amazing family and friends and to live in such a supportive and caring community.
Our “Hope for Aria” is that this beautiful child with the brightest smile will be given the chance to reach her greatest potential.
If you were not able to attend the benefit but would like to give to the “Hope for Aria” Foundation, please send your donation to: Hope for Aria Bell Foundation, Merchants Bank, 102 East 3rd Street, Winona, Minn., 55987.
