Last year I lost someone close to me. A baby who’s loss is still felt by me and everyone who was involved with her life and death. We can all “imagine” what it would be like to possibly lose our child but one cannot quite connect to the feeling until the moment is upon you. That moment is here for a local Astoria mom and she needs our help.
The newly organized Astoria Moms Task Force for Mothers in Need which was established by Robin Pelitaris in October is organizing a fundraiser for this local mom. The Wenners are a local Astoria Family whose two year old boy, Eli, has been battling Leukemia for the last several months. The event will feature a buffet with cash bar, raffle prizes and professional photo opp for you and your family to celebrate Mother’s Day this year. Music for Aardvarks is donating their time and will be performing for the kids!!! Click here to sign up and attend the fundraiser.
If you are unable to attend but would like to donate to the family, you may do so by visiting Eli’s Chip-In Page.
About the Task Force:
The Astoria Task Force is a community dedicated to supporting and nurturing women who are in need due to a family crisis, the arrival of a new baby, or any unforeseen circumstances that may hinder their ability to thrive as a parent and individual. You do not need to be a mother or a woman in order to be a Task Force member. All you need is the desire to help! find out more here. They have provided home cooked meals and support to over a dozen moms in the Astoria, NY area since then. They are always seeking individuals who wish to donate their time and/or services and who are committed to the group’s cause.
