Morrow Memorial Preschool is holding a fundraising event on January 9 to raise funds for a little boy at the school who is fighting cancer at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
The “Love for Lucas – Snowball Dance” event will take place at The Woodland from 12-3 p.m. on Jan. 9, and will include a live kids rock band and fun activities; lunch will be provided by the Village Trattoria. Lucas and his family are Maplewood residents.
Tickets can be purchased at LoveForLucas.eventbrite.com; donations can also be made on the website. All proceeds go to “Lucas’ Get Better Fund” through GoFundMe.
Already, the community response has been tremendous. Said Jennifer Roszell, who is helping to organize and promote the Jan. 9 “Love for Lucas” event: “We’ve had such wonderful support from the community, and donations are being made every day!”
