From all of us involved with the 2015 David Wilson Pass The Gift Fundraiser, thank you for making this year a huge success. We had a great time for a great cause and had a lot of fun. In the coming days, we will be publishing photos adding more personal stories from our recipients and their families. Thank you again for all your support!
The goal of the David Wilson Pass The Gift Rollin’& Rockin’ Fundraiser is to provide much needed funds for the Wilson family and other recipients in crises due to neurologic deficit. ALS continues to bring new challenges to David’s body and quality of life. Losing your ability to walk, speak, or function with pain or weakness makes your world smaller. When a friend offers their hand, that world begins to expand. When LOTS of friends reach out, it opens wide. The true gift David received was the realization that others need the same love and support. Due to the unbelievable response in 2010, David made a promise to his friends and the community to pay that gift forward for many years to come.
With the proceeds from our past events, we have been able to help the following people! Alan Biggerstaff, Hannah Conley, Tanner Deaton, Dana Hare, Gail Langston, Ashley McIntyre, Roger Padgett, Bethany Preston’s family, Art Mauney and Brian Dukes.
For this year’s event we have expanded our focus to include bringing awareness to Multiple Sclerosis. (MS). The Rollin’ & Rockin’ “Pass the Gift” Fundraiser’s beneficiary will be Danita Hamrick. Danita is a daughter, wife, mother, educator, friend, a Multiple Sclerosis navigator, and so much more. She was born in Chicago, Illinois and moved to Shelby, NC with her family in 1979. She graduated from Shelby High School and Gardner-Webb University with a BS in Early Childhood Education. She later received a MA in School Administration from UNCC. She accomplished her educational goals while marrying her husband, Scott and becoming a mother to her son, Dayne and her daughter, Laurabeth. She would take one class a week for five years to finish her MA. She spent most of her career at Washington Elementary as a teacher and then as an Assistant Principal. Danita has suffered with MS since she was diagnosed in 1999.
Any support you can offer us will be greatly appreciated!
