An Evening to Benefit "The Brain Candy Project"
Minneapolis, MN THE NEED IS REAL. Tonight, and every night, there are parents sleeping on hospital chairs and even floors, worried and hoping for the best for their children, who are fighting brain cancer and brain trauma. They have little time or energy to deal with the day-to-day things most families needlaundry, day care, pets, mealslet alone big picture activities like financial planning, nutrition, understanding cancer research or even hospital parking costs.
The Brain Candy Project (www.braincandyproject.org) is a non-profit organization that helps the parents of children who are critically ill with brain cancer or trauma by addressing their day-to-day needs of living in the hospital in the early days/weeks of their child's diagnosis. The organization's motto is "holding parents so parents can hold their children." Henry and Cameron Allen founded the Brain Candy Project last year. Cameron, 13, has a rare, stage 3 form of brain cancer; Henry is his father and also a cancer survivor.
Susan and Christine Anderson, local businesswomen and fundraisers, have put together a special evening to support the Brain Candy Projectand to have a lot of fun, with special appearances by Gary Louris of the Jayhawks, the band Kangaroo and several surprise guests, plus a Hollywood-studded silent auction, including:
Tickets, available at Ticketmaster are $75 including light appetizers and a complementary beverage.
The Andersons have helped other charities, but this extra special event is particularly close to their hearts: Henry and Cameron Allen are family friends whom Susan and Christine have watched as they began their difficult journey two years ago. Like the Andersons and the Allens, this event is classy, but easy-going and casual. As Christine describes it, "a black tie event disguised in a pair of jeans and nice top."
Susan and Christine are asking for your help to make this event successful for Cameron's dream, Henry's vision, and all the families who will be served by The Brain Candy Project.
