Join us on Tuesday April 24th for Our Paws Your Cause Bingo to benefit Meadow Louise "Lulu"'s medical care. Lulu was born at only 23 weeks and spent the first 119 days of her life fighting at UVA's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Lulu's family needs community support to pay for their extensive medical costs to support Lulu's ongoing medical needs.
Bingo cards are sold in packs of 3 for $5 and raffle tickets are sold 2 for $3 or 4 for $5. Only cash is accepted for bingo cards and raffle tickets but cards may be used for food and beverage purchases. All proceeds from the bingo cards and raffle tickets will go back to Lulu's family for medical costs. The event is held in our covered pavilion, rain or shine! We will hold 10 rounds of bingo with door prizes given and a 50/50 raffle.
A message from the mother, Jamie Newman Ryder:
On November 24, 2017 at 1:15am the Ryder family welcomed sweet Meadow Louise "LuLu" to the world. Lu was born at only 23 weeks gestation in the back of an ambulance on the way to Augusta Health. She weighed only 1lb 5oz but came out kicking and crying. She was transported to UVA's neonatal intensive care unit where she spent the first 119 days of her life, fighting every single day to do all the things a baby needs to do. We were able to witness God perfecting this little miracle right in front of our eyes. And are so very blessed to live in an area where 23 weekers are considered viable, as that is not the case in every state. On March 22nd, just four days after her due date, at only 4lbs 11ozs LuLu was discharged a very happy, mostly healthy little peanut. She is thriving at home with her mom, Jamie, dad, CG, and big brothers, Tripp and Baxter.
