BENEFITING: TOMORROWS HOPE

EVENT: Hope Fest 2017

THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends,  

     Almost 19 years ago my father, Jerry Kelley, lost his short battle with cancer.  I actually can’t believe I just typed “19 years.”  Sometimes it seems like yesterday, and other times feels like an eternity since I have seen my dad’s face or heard his voice.  I miss him every day and wish he were here to talk to.  So many things have happened over the years and I wish he had been here to see or give advice.  Looking back at wedding pictures seem the hardest.  I didn’t have him by my side walking me down the aisle to give me away.  We never danced that night while everyone watched our father/dance.  I don’t have a single picture of him holding a grandchild or playing and laughing with them.

     13 years ago I decided I needed to do something positive to help other people who are going through similar experiences and have their own disheartening stories.   I have helped raise almost $25,000 for an organization called “Tomorrow’s Hope.”   I have a team in honor of my dad called, “Jerry’s Journeyers,” and the Jefferson Veterinary Clinic has been generous enough to help sponsor part of the team every year.  The last several years I have reached out to many of you in hopes that I could reach my goals of raising money in his memory.  I can’t stress how grateful I have been for the extreme generosity that everyone has shown to me and my family in support for this event.

   For anyone who may not know,  Tomorrow’s Hope is an organization that has been around for 20 years and has granted more than $3.9 million to our health care community.  The reason that I chose Tomorrow’s Hope is because the money from the organization stays mostly local instead of national and most of the money goes directly to the recipients with very little going to administration like so many other fundraisers.  Each recipient of the money sends quarterly reports back to the organization that document exactly how the funds are being used.  You also have the option to choose which organization you want to contribute to if desired.  Some examples of the recipients for this event are:

     oChildren’s hospitals of both Madison and Milwaukee

     oFort Healthcare, Fort Atkinson o Watertown Area Cares Clinic/UW Health partners/Watertown Regional Medical Center

     oRainbow Hospice Care, Jefferson County o Rock River Free Clinic o UW Paul P. Carbone Cancer Center, Madison

     oAlzheimer’s Association of Southeastern Wisconsin


 Total amount of money raised from our team over the last 12 years:

 • 2005 - $909.75

 • 2006 - $1,315.00

 • 2007 - $1,545.75

 • 2008 - $1,200.00

 • 2009 - $1,037.00

 • 2010 - $1,105.00

 • 2011 - $1,535.00

 • 2012 - $1,480.00

 • 2013-  $4,055.00

 • 2014-  $3,260.00

 • 2015 - $3,279.00

 • 2016 - $4,170.00

 Total = $24,891.50    

I would also be more than happy to pick up your donation.    You also can of course donate on this link as well.
