Stars and Stripes Festival May 26-28, 2012
The town of Chesapeake Beach hosted a three-day Memorial Day Festival "Chesapeake Stars and Stripes Festival". The intention was to involve the youth of community in efforts to educate them on what Memorial Day is all about. A wide range of family friendly activities and venues were held throughout the weekend.
The Northeast Community Center, Chesapeake Beach Maryland, was the center of activity for military and civilian non-profit organizations with a focus on aide to our military families. Fifty non-profit organizations attended the event in support of our military and in tribute to our Fallen Hero's.
Sandy Walker-Samler, Founder of Windows of Strength, Limited, explained we must not forget that military personnel and families are not exempt of the need for organ transplants and also assistance with non-medical out-of-pocket costs throughout the transplant process.
The Mother/Daughter Tea and Fashion Show is not only a fundraising event for Windows of Strength, Limited, but also a way to honor and memorialize all the special Mom's in our lives. So not matter what special Mom that is in your life, I hope the event created priceless memories that will last a lifetime!
Attendees were awarded prizes for the following creative hats:
Hattitude (best handmade)
Proceeds from the show benefit patients at the University of Maryland Transplant Center.
We hope to see everyone again next year.
Windows of Strength, Limited has been established to provide financial assistance with non-medical costs not covered through insurance, government programs or other funding to post surgery organ transplant recipients and their caregivers.
