NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The Love for Lucas Fundraiser, hosted by New Providence High School student, Alli Lamhing, is currently looking for sponsors, volunteers and donations. The event will be held on June 1 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the William Paca Club in New Providence to benefit Lucas Reiling, a 7-year-old boy from New Providence who has been battling and receiving treatment for brain tumors for the past five years.
All funds raised will go directly to the Reiling family, who wish to add a handicap accessible addition to their home. Attendees will be able to make their own ice cream sundaes while they enjoy music by Club Souren and other surprise entertainment throughout the day.
The Facebook page for the fundraiser can be accessed here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/278069425691731/
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of the event, a donation with a minimum of $25 is requested. Please make checks payable to Heartworks Foundation with "Lucas Reiling" in the memo and mail to the address below. Please include a business card which will be on handouts that will be provided to all attendees, as well as incorporated in a slideshow at the event.
