If you'll be between Detroit and Flint, Michigan in late June and would like to help a charitable cause AND pick up some Guy Fieri swag, have I got the deal for you!
Young Paiden Goddeeris just turned 5 years old! At 8 months, he developed signs of severe autism, complicated by renal artery stenosis (wiki). The Goddeeris' have found a helpful oxygen therapy, but their medical insurance does not cover alternative medicine.
Friends and family of Paiden are holding a fund raising event on June 26, 2010 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The event will include an all you can eat pasta/pizza meal, raffles, games, entertainment, bake sales, 5 stand and more.
Funds will be used to cover Paiden's treatments not covered under his insurance: Pure Oxygen Therapy at the Oxford Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Center and the possibility of a helper dog via 4 Paws For Ability.
The fundraiser lunch will be $5 per child 10 and under, $10 per adult, or $30 per family of 6 or more. Cash or check only please.
Lori and Guy Fieri have donated autographed merchandise for auction or raffle.
