Team Wildflower and The Rodman Ride for Kids 2013

 

What a Day! We’re happy to report that Team Wildflower successfully rode in the Rodman Ride for Kids this past September. Our riders were thrilled to wake up to clear blue skies on the morning of the ride. At the starting line in Foxboro, the excitement was palpable as we joined 2,000 other riders to participate in the largest single-day fundraiser benefitting at-risk kids in the nation. It was an amazing day for our Team and our Wildflower families.

Our riders, along with our sponsor Group One Partners, The Salah Foundation, The Bailey Family Foundation and over 250 individual donors, not only met our ride fundraising goal ... they surpassed it! That means all our fundraising dollars will receive a 10% match from the Rodman Ride!
 
Thank you riders, donors and volunteers for supporting Wildflower in our efforts to help children who have lost a parent.

Edwin McCain Concert: What a Night—Thank You!

Spectacular! That is how we billed it and that is exactly what it was.

From the moment people entered the door, the look and feel of the beautiful space at Studios@3 Adams, the delicious food at both venues, the intimacy of TCAN and the gorgeous Winston’s flowers, the stage was set. And from there it was just more than we ever could have expected!

The night truly was magical. The spirited conversations among good friends and strangers, the buzz in the room, the moment Kayla and Edwin took the stage and broke out into song together, the ease and presence of Jeff Baron, our great emcee, Debbie Whitehill’s fabulous talk about what we do, the moving Wildflower film….what a way to open the night.

And then the concert. Edwin was the perfect choice. He sang for us from his heart and soul. He charmed the audience with his incredible voice, his engaging stories, his connection to our mission with his memories of camp and his honesty as a human being…could it have been any better? It just all played beautifully.

And all of you made it happen. How can I thank you enough? To all of our sponsors, to those of you who have worked for months attending to every single event detail, to those working behind the scenes the night of the event and of course, to our guests. Even to those of you who did not work directly on this concert, but who kept our work with our families moving along while we put this all together. For those who cheered us on and offered us your expertise. To TCAN staff, for all their help, guidance and hard work. It is just amazing what the Wildflower community and the help of new friends have made happen!!

I thank you!

Your generosity has ensured that Wildflower will continue to grow and serve the families that we care so much about. The event brought in over $40,000. But its success will not only be measured through the revenue, but through the engagement of the community in our vision, the many offers of help in the future and the potential for new partnerships and new volunteers. We look forward to including you in this wonderful effort to help families rebuild their lives after the loss of a parent.

What an accomplishment. Spectacular, don’t you think?

Cheers and my very best regards,

Cyndi
