Support Liam Doherty and family
Any amount will help and will be appreciated. In addition to $$ please Liam and family in your thoughts and prayers.
We had a huge turnout through the day and as a result of the kindness of all of you we will be able to give Kate and the girls in the region of $22,000 and that is after contributing $500 to the Alder Center for the Caring and donating a small sponsorship to Race for Jaime and Spankys Golf tournaments. Race for Jaime is donating all profits to Kate and the girls and Spankys are splitting all their profits between Kate and the girls and St. Judes.
In addition, when the final accounting is done and monies collected Neds will make donations to the American Lung Association and St. Judes.
What an amazing reflection of the decency of humanity and of the person Liam is.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
PS Here is the FB post I made thanking those who made this day happen:
Thanks to everyone who supported the fundraiser, who donated, provided items for the raffle/auction, spent their hard earned money on drinks and food and who just enjoyed listening to music and telling stories about Liam.
Thanks to all the musicians who gave their time freely and to Neds staff who provided such great service.
Thanks to Liam Doherty's three beautiful girls Clare, Bridget and Abby and their cousin who sold millions of raffle tickets and helped with the till.
Thanks to Gordon Masterson for working so hard with me to put this on.
Thanks to Graham Davies and Karen Davies and Gordon Masterson for donating the profits to the fund for the girls.
Be assured that every $$ collected will be handed over to benefit the family.
Thanks to Kate and the Doherty's for making my family a part of theirs, it's been an honor. We are there for you any time you need us.
Miss you and love you forever Liam Doherty! I know you were smiling last night! ❤️️
As Liam would say "the craic will be mighty" In other words it will be an awesome day!
We will have Irish music from 1 to 5 and a band later in the evening. We will have a raffle for prizes and a silent auction. All proceeds will benefit Liam's girls, the Adler Center for Caring and the American Cancer Society.
Please try to make it and please let me know if you can get prizes for the raffle or auction: golf foursomes, restaurant or hotel certificates, anything you can think of. Email me if you can donate or get something! firstname.lastname@example.org
'twill be a grand day and we will have great craic!
See you there!
The wake/visitation will be held from 5 to 8 on Thursday at Leesburg Funeral home 158 Catoctin Circle NE, Leesburg VA and a Holy Mass will be celebrated on Saturday at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Purcellville at 11.30 followed by a celebration of his life in the Parish Hall.
Please say a prayer or send good thoughts for his soul and for Kate, his three beautiful girls, Clare, Bridget and Abby and his family in Ireland and here.
The generosity and kindness you have shown is remarkable and truly appreciated.
With broken hearts!
