Tonight, from 8-close, just one month after cancer survivor and “Chive Charities” recipient Melissa Smith was awarded $50,000, changing her life for the better, Annapolis MD “Chivers” are coming together to host a “pay it forward” fundraiser for a local child born with spina bifida at Fado Annapolis. With guest bartenders, The Chive sponsored silent auction, DJ, drink specials including KCCO Black Lager, and a $5 donation cover, a full on take-over at Fadó Irish pub ensures that “Chivers” and regular guests alike will have an epic night out!
All donations on Friday night will benefit little Addy, born with spina bifida. Learn more about Addy and her family at “Hope for Sweet Addy.” If you can’t make the event but want to donate: http://www.gofundme.com/4y52q4
For all intents and purposes, cancer survivor and “Chive Charities” recipient, Melissa Smith is the event host Friday night as she chose little Addy as the recipient of “pay it forward.” Melissa survived Hodgkins Lymphoma twice only to be diagnosed with a rare disorder called Transverse Myelitis which left her paralyzed from the waist down. It was Melissa’s story that kicked off this event Friday night and is newsworthy still. Check it out. It’s worth the read: http://chivecharities.org/fund-stories/melissa-smith
So, get thee to Fado tonight!
