BELLEAIR BLUFFS – The Thorn Collection of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate knows that when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!
Martha Thorn and her team were joined by many children at their 3rd annual lemonade stand fundraising event for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation at The Thorn Collection office Sept. 13th. The event was attended by Congressman David Jolly’s wife Laura, Clearwater Mayor Cretekos and Belleair Mayor Katica as well as the Largo Fire Department and a special guest Hulk Hogan. Together they raised more than $15,000 at the two-hour event! “Cancer strikes 43 children a day, 1 in 285 children. Yet only 4% of the Federal Government Cancer Research funding goes toward Pediatric Cancer. Therefore, this foundation is critical to funding research for Pediatric Cancer.” Thorn said. “We are delighted to present over $15,000 to them this year.”
Lots of refreshing lemonade was served and the Pediatric Cancer Foundation received a heart-felt financial boost. The Tampa-based Pediatric Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising money to fund research to eliminate childhood cancer.
