Finley Fest was a HUGE success! Please mark your calendars for our 2nd Annual Finley Fest - September 24th, 2022 at Cork & Kerry on Western Ave. in Chicago!
Finley passed away on September 11, 2020. She was such a beautiful soul. As a family, we decided a traditional funeral was not what we wanted. A "Celebration of Life" sounded much better. Finley was supposed to turn three years old on September 27, 2020. We figured her birthday was the best day to celebrate her life. Family and friends came to her "blue birthday party" and celebrated together. She would have loved it!
After we celebrated that day we wanted to make it an annual tradition to remember her. We thought a toy drive would be a great way to celebrate her birthday every year. From the very beginning of Finley's journey we were blessed with so many giving people. The outreach of support was overwhelming! We knew we wanted to "pay it forward" some day... this is how the Finley Forever Foundation was started.
Finley Fest will be in honor of Finley's birthday and we will hold it annually. This first event will be to establish funds for our foundation. Long term goals are to host multiple events throughout the year! We will use the funds to assist families battling cancer financially and emotionally. We are connecting with Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, IL. We recently held an online toy drive where the items went directly to the oncology floor. We will also be giving all stem cell transplant patients a gift when they come in for their transplants.
We have applied for our 501(C)3 status and it is pending.
Thank you for your interest in our foundation. We look forward to meeting you at Finley Fest 2022!
We love our supporters!!
