An OT Plea
For those of you who don’t frequent my TTC journey on my other blog, let me fill you in a bit. I was diagnosed with Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome a while back, which is a form of infertility. I have an amazing Reproductive Endocrinologist in Orlando named Dr. Trolice. He formed a 501(c)(3) a few years ago with a major focus of erasing the stigma behind infertility and offering hope for couples needing help becoming a family. This non-profit dream of his is called “Fertile Dreams.”
Each year Fertile Dreams gives away several $10,000 grants to assist couples with IVF and soon, for adoption also. The award is based on financial need and recipients are chosen by a special grant committee. Amazingly, Fertile Dreams has already seen babies from this miracle grant and is hoping to change more and more lives each year.
Here’s where you come in.
This year, we are hosting an event called “Fertile Dreams on the Greens” at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida. Our special (and WAY awesome) guest is LPGA Pro & World Golf Hall of Famer, Annika Sorenstam. The event is taking place Mother’s Day weekend on Friday, May 7th.
Some of you may be saying, “Well, I don’t live in Orlando, let alone Florida…so what gives!?!” We are in need of sponsors to make this event a complete success. Sponsorships for the event start at just $350 and go all the way up to $10,000 for a Title Sponsorship. Imagine being able to say you gave the gift of life to a deserving couple. Awesome. If sponsorship isn’t really your thing, please…consider donating an item to our silent auction. These things can be custom paintings, a week at your timeshare or vacation property, website design, new and unworn high end shoes or purses, custom-made jewelry, gift baskets, rare bottles of wine, pottery, sculptures, tickets to concerts, VIP experiences, sports events, etc., celebrity autographed items, etc.
I challenge you to please pass this blog entry onto everyone you know. We all know someone who has something to give, whether financially or in the form of a great auction item. Feel free to copy and paste it into your blog or mention it with a link. I would be forever grateful.
