Our good friends the Rottinghaus family held a garage sale to raise awareness and money for SMA research. They talked to a lot of people and helped educate them about the disease. Their neighbors donated items and the girls and their friends had a lemonade stand.
They came over on Sunday to present the “BIG” checks that they had. They made up large checks for their presentation. They were very secretive about how much they had raised so I raised the bar to probably $300 for the two day event. The girls, Sydney and Kaley, did the presentation to us as Dylan ran around the house. The first “check” they presented was for the lemonade stand. It was made out in the amount of $90.15. For a lemonade stand!!! We couldn’t believe it. The second check they presented was for the garage sale portion and was made out for $836.75. A total of $926.90. Simply overwhelming. This money will go toward the Climb4SMA campaign which is for SMA research.
I feel extremely blessed to know such amazing people. The Rottinghaus family has been there for us every step of the way. They have done such amazing things for us. I can not say thank you enough. I don’t know how to say thank you loud enough. BUT Thank you!
