We are so blessed. So very, very blessed. Thank you to Nichele Portrait Studio for photographing our Wings For Angel fundraising event benefiting the Hugginz By Angel Foundation. Our deepest gratitude goes out to you.
The Best Western Plus Barclay Hotel gave us the most phenomenal gift. They donated the banquet rooms and the meals. This means that all monies raised through ticket sales was able to go straight to the Hugginz By Angel Foundation. Lauren Spencer-Smith and Morgan Buxton were absolutely breathtaking as they sang to the crowd at the HUgginz WIngs for ANgel Event.
Our event co-emcees Les Doiron and Kendall Hanson were awesome!!! They helped to make the evening such a fun one. Our DJ Scott McFarlane had the dance floor rocking. Curtis Hargrove even performed Let It Go from the Frozen soundtrack!!! Miss Angel stayed late and closed down the dance floor. It was honestly the first day we have seen Angel sustain this much energy and be able to make it through more than one dance or even stay up past 8pm. We feel this is a true sign that she is finally on the path to healing.
The Wings For Angel event has been in the works for 6 long months. There is no adequate way to describe how grateful we are for the event organizers Tara Sloboda and Karrine. The hours spent in organizing this night have been immense.
Charlene H was absolutely incredible in organizing the silent and live auction items. It was incredible to see how many items were generously donated for auction tonight. There are so many touching moments and photographsthat we want to share in the days ahead.
We will be asking you to keep this amazing young man in your thoughts and prayers as her runs 58 marathons in 49 days, all to tell #Ellen Angel’s story. When Curtis runs to Burbank California he will be carrying 2 love filled #Hugginz blankets with him. One is a #catlovers blanket sewn just for Ellen, and the other is a #sesamestreet blanket for Ellen to fill with her love and personally give to a critically ill child in her own community. Curtis has been a miracle in our lives.
We will worry greatly about his safety as endures grueling runs day after day. And the pain he will encure. There is a reason Curtis and Angel are the best of friends. And there is a reason we call them a #dynamicduo. We truly blessed. Amen. – Nurse Mom #HugginzByAngel #WrappingSickKidsInAWarmHug
