Saturday Night Update:
What an amazing outpouring of support.
We have surpassed our initial goals but we're going to leave this open and see how much we can raise. Remember, we're going to add another $20,000 from the Belmar Mayors Ball to this number and then split the total between the two families. Please continue to share via Facebook and Twitter.
Thank you everyone, thank you.
Belmar lost one angel Thursday night and another clings to life at the hospital. Both girls attend Belmar Elementary School.
This is a close-knit school in a small town, so the feeling of loss is impactful and meaningful.
Please pray for the families involved, the girl who passed away and the little girl still fighting for her life in the hospital.
We have a Mayors Ball every year in Belmar. We've been raising money for our Belmar Youth Club. We're going to expand our mission this year and fund an effort to raise money for the girls families. Today we are setting aside $20,000 of the 2017 Mayors Ball fundraising to date for these two families. They face enormous financial challenges. Join us by donating anything you can through the Belmar Mayors Ball and together we can support these families in the financial challenges they face. If we raise another $20,000 we will have $40,000 to split between the two families.
Belmar is a great town, together let's help the families of these Belmar Angels.
