Do you like trivia? How about pizza and beer? And the chance for a $500 grand prize? Well, The Stella B. Foundation is holding a trivia night fundraiser at the American Legion Post at 533 Amherst St. (next to Wegmans) on Saturday, June 30th.
The Stella B. Foundation works to assist local families who have children suffering life-threatening or long term illnesses. The foundation was started four years ago following the death of our daughter Stella. She lost a 3 week battle with a cancerous tumor and a coinciding infection. Our family was left devastated. We struggled, and still struggle with this loss. As a result of our time at Women's and Children's Hospital of Buffalo we witnessed firsthand the struggles many families experienced while caring for their child during hospital care.
The Stella B. Foundation's goal is to help offset some of the financial pressures a family may encounter during their time of crisis. While we are not able to provide complete financial support, we hope to help alleviate some of the burden, allowing parents to spend as much time as possible with their child. Every sick child needs their family by their side during their fight. We believe finances should not impede the family's ability to be there. The Stella B. Foundation is committed to helping make the option to hold their child's hand an easier one.
In the last three years The Stella B. Foundation has helped a number of local families with rent or mortgage, utility bills, money for groceries and travel arrangements for an out-of-town specialist among many other things. We've seen the impact that our assistance has had on a number of the families. And this impact is what keeps us going.
The event starts at 6 pm, trivia starts at 7pm. Admission includes, pizza, draft beer and soda. There will also be a cash bar. All welcome in teams from 1 to 6 players. The cost is $15 per person or $65 for a team of 6. The winning team wins $500! Visit www.stellabfoundation.org
