Family and Friends,
the end of June, we will be participating in the Ride for Roswell in honor of a
dear friend and loved one of our community, Ernest Oliverio, to support
cutting-edge cancer research and lifesaving treatments at Roswell Park Cancer
Institute. Ernie has been courageously battling an aggressive form of cancer for
almost 2 years. He is a loving
husband, father, and friend to many, and he and his family have made an
indelible mark on our community in so many ways.
His wife Nicki has committed herself to caring for others through her
nursing profession at St. Mary’s Hospital in Lewiston, as well as spiritually
educating our youth through her service for many, many years as a religious
education teacher at St. Stephen’s Parish on Grand Island.
In addition to the Ride, we will be hosting a fundraiser on
March 28th, 2009 at the Sandy Beach Yacht Club.
This event will include a Chinese Auction/Basket Raffle, Silent Auction,
and 50/50 Cash Raffle with 100% of the money raised
going directly to Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
We are seeking your help with donations of merchandise, gift
certificates, or services for the auctions and raffles.
participation in our fundraiser provides a unique opportunity for everyone who
has a family member, friend, or colleague who has faced cancer – the chance to
do something to directly help in their fight against it. In that spirit, we’ve
chosen to Ride under the team name “Ollie’s Warriors”, and ask that you
