We have a very special fundraiser for the adorable 3 year old, Sadie Hulsey. She is the granddaughter of our own, Wilmywood crew member, Kirk Smith.
Sadie was diagnosed with (JMML) Juvenile Leukemia at just 17 months old, which is as devastating emotionally as it is financially.
We are coming together as a film community to support one of our own. So, please join us Saturday, June 28th at Courts and Sports (3525 Lancelot Ln) beginning at 6pm. We will have live music from The Polar Bear Blues Band and admission is free.
There are a ton of raffle prizes including: an original oil painting by Wilmington artist Doug Campbell, several B&W signed etchings by Christopher Alexander.
Autographed Sleepy Hollow and Under the Dome merchandise (shirts, baseball caps, posters) signed by our favorite Wilmywood stars including Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie and many others. Raffle tickets are 1 FOR $5 OR 5 FOR $20.
And the biggun!! We will be auctioning off a MEET N GREET with Tom Mison. Yep! Ichabod Crane himself. And guess who the auctioneer will be? The one and only EP/Director of Sleepy Hollow, Ken Olin!!
The monies raised on this night will be used to assist Sadie’s family in off setting expenses incurred with the treatment of Juvenile Leukemia, which has included a bone marrow transplant. Sadie has weekly treatments and check up appointments in Chapel Hill, the doctors want her to be close by as her condition can change rapidly, so out of necessity Sadie, her mother, and sister live in an apartment in Chapel Hill (which has its own costs of food, rent, and utilities) while the family still maintains a separate home in Wilmington. Sadie’s father travels every weekend to and from Chapel Hill to be with her, so there is the high cost of fuel as well. All the above, plus medical expenses have put a strain on this young family’s finances. With your support we can make this journey a whole lot easier for their family.
Courts and Sports as part of their F.I.L.M. Industry Night, will be giving all people involved in the film industry a discount on food and drink. Showing their unwavering support for the people in film industry and their families, in addition to sponsoring the event, they have also graciously offered to donate 10% of their net proceeds from the night to Sadie’s family!
Your “Favorite Food GURU” Reva and Executive Chef Andrew will be pouring the cocktails along with your “Hairstylist Extraordinaire” JoJo.
Cornhole, VOLLEYPong, Volleyball, and Bocce ball will be your activities for the evening. So come eat, drink, be merry, buy raffle tickets, and save a child’s life.
Lets all help the family take their focus off of the finances and focus on what is really important…this little girl Sadie the joy that she brings to this world.
