On June 26, 2014, the PPC Family Fund Board members were guest bartenders at Marcelita's Restaurant in Hudson. It was a great way to connect with the community, raise funds, and create excitement for the 2nd Annual Friends and FUNds cocktail party.
October 19, 2013 was the first of many events that the PPC Family Fund Board members will host. The Family & FUNds Cocktail Party was very succesful due to the hard work of the committee and generosity from the guests. Dr. Sarah Freibert (The director of the Haslinger Family Pediatric Palliative Care Center at Akron Children's Hospital) educated the guests about palliative care, while Yvonne Hays gave an inside look on what palliative care means to her daughter, Carson, and their family.
The PPC Family Fund Board Members support fund-raising events for Children's Miracle Network. On June 22, 2014, the PPC group greeted guests of the walk and carnival, and enjoyed their time with other passionate supporters.
