Giving Back

Last year was a Christmas season unlike any other for my Family. Chris, Taimi and I spent most of the holiday season at the hospital wondering if the new and sweet addition to our family would survive birth, we also wondered what our lives would be like after Zuzu was born. After a year of over 500 hours at hospitals and medical clinics and 2 open heart surgeries our daughter is here and has been growing for 10 months. Through all those months of uncertainty the miracles that kept us going usually involved family, friends, loved ones, answered prayers, medical miracles, support and hope of every kind from all over the world, literally.

What my family and I have come to believe is it's not what happens to you in life, cause things will happen. it's how you handle it... and it's what you do because of it.  As a result we decided how we want to respond, we want to pay it forward and this is one way that we are doing just that.This Saturday December 7 we are holding a charity Christmas party. 

Since Zuzu like all kids emanates pure love, charity and hope we decided to name it after her, 
Zuzu's North Pole Adventure and you're all invited!

We are donating all of the proceeds to families with special needs kids. Some of the proceeds will be used for sub for Santa  Much of the proceeds will go to local families who are swimming in medical bills and are having a hard time catching a breath. 100% of all proceeds will be given away to these families based on the seriousness of their needs. We have partnered with the United Angels Foundation to identify families with the greatest needs. All expenses for the event are covered or have been donated. So that not a single dollar will be wasted.

The event is in the Alterra gym in Provo at Alterra Gymnasium – 

Please join with us in this special and fun Christmas event that will lift heavy hearts, and bring peace and hope to many local families this Christmas season.

Santa will be there with many of his elves. 
Tea with Mrs. Clause.
 Christmas Bouncy houses and obstacle courses.
 Local food vendors.
 and so much more.
It's going to be a lot of fun! 

Please come and show your support.
With much appreciation and love,
Ashley, Chris, Taimi and little Zuzu and Event Founders
