PENNIES FROM HEAVEN Caleb’s Foundation, announce their Annual Fundraising Event


Sunday April 28th 2013

Nichole Granville announces the Annual Fundraising Event to support PENNIES FROM HEAVEN Caleb’s Foundation. The 4th Annual Tricky Tray is set for Sunday April 28th, from 12-2:30pm at Ehrhardt’s Waterfront Restaurant. Over 90 themed baskets (valued at $100+) for every family member including the pet will be raffled off. Admission is free, cash bar available, door prizes & desserts will be given out and general tickets will be sold at $5 for 25. Once again, Caleb’s Wishing Well will be set up so bring your extra pennies and change, toss them in and make a wish. Last year’s event raised an incredible $42,000 for families in need! If you would like to become an event sponsor, please email calebspennies18@gmail.com or visit www.calebspennies.org for more information.

CALEB’S PENNIES FROM HEAVEN is not your typical foundation. It is rather unique in its concept which is “No parent should have to prioritize a payment or job before the care of their sick child.” The foundation has lived by this motto since May 2010 as they have financially assisted more than 200 families with a critically ill child. “Our mission has remained the same since day one and that is to support parents in the care of their sick child by relieving the stress of financial burdens at home. We have helped by covering rent and mortgage payments, electric and medical bills, other utility bills and much more” said Caleb’s mom, Nichole.

Caleb was a little boy with an amazing spirit, infectious laugh and energy for life that was unmatched. In February 2007 at the age of 2, Caleb was granted his angel wings after being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. “My family and I started this foundation as a way to help others while honoring Caleb’s memory. He inspired us to take the tragedy of losing him and turn it into something positive. Although his life ended much too soon, his legacy lives on through PENNIES FROM HEAVEN and the families we have financially assisted.” said Nichole.

PENNIES FROM HEAVEN Caleb’s Foundation was started in loving memory of Caleb, a 2 year old boy with an amazing spirit, infectious laugh and energy for life that was unmatched. He found delight in simple things, such as his mommy’s guitar, his stuffed animal Mr. Bear and empty Gatorade bottles. He truly brought joy to everyone he met. On February 25th 2007, Caleb was granted his angel wings after being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. He was only 2 years old. Although his life ended much too soon, his legacy lives on through the Foundation his mother started in his memory.

Due to outside support and volunteers, 98% of all donation money is able to go directly to families in need like Riley’s family. Riley is a 3 year old with complex congenital heart disease. He was listed for a heart and lung transplant and continues to wait. He has had 3 “dry runs” since being listed but all three times the organs could not be used. (Gas bill paid) Alex is a 17 year old who was injured in a car accident after her prom. She sustained a severe traumatic brain injury, laceration of her spleen and remained in the hospital for more than 4 months. (Electric bill paid) Faith is a 6 year old diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder. She had a tracheotomy placed at birth and has had over 15 surgeries to monitor and correct her airway. (Mortgage bill paid) Ronald is a 1 year old who was born at just 25 weeks after his mother was beaten by his father. The beating also resulted in his twin sister’s death. Ronald remained in the hospital for the first year of his life. (Rent bill paid)

These are just a few of the families who have been financially assisted by Caleb’s Pennies. Last year’s Tricky Tray event raised the most money to date, an incredible $42,000! With your help, hopefully more money will be raised this year and given back to families who need it most.
