The 2nd Annual RedStrong blood drive will be held at Our Lady of the Lake Church on Saturday, November 26th from 8:30-4:30. Last years drive was an amazing success thanks to Lauren Sciacca, a former field hockey player of my Mom’s. She is an incredible, miracle woman who puts her heart and soul into everything. Recently, she has found herself battling for her life, and RedStrong would like to help. Please come to support our friend Lauren and so many others in dyer need of blood. Save the date to donate and save a life because you just NEVER know! We also ask for you to just Pray. You can visit Lauren’s Love Fund to help her with medical costs.
A Mass for Richie will be held at Our Lady of the Lake on Saturday the 15th at 5:00pm
The 7th annual Porter Family Memorial Golf tournament was held on June 29, 2016 at Bay Point golf course in Onset, MA.. Rick, Jonathan, and Nate won the tournament with a little help from above shooting -12. Maura is Richie’s Bentley golf coach Mickey’s best friend as well as the team ‘Mom’. Joe and Maura are also two of Richie’s biggest fans! Proceeds from the tournament went to Dana Farber in Richie Powers name. Thank you to all this years participants.
A big thank you to the RedStrong softball team for honoring Richie every time they play. This softball team meant so much to him. It allowed him to be “normal” when he played. It allowed him to be with his buddies which was always important to him. Playing allowed him to compete, something he so very much loved. He played all the time despite how he felt. I can see him shaking his head in modesty smiling at me when I brag about the homerun he hit, or the fact that he seemed to always get on base. He NEVER gave up. In their last game, he didn’t get out of bed all day but somehow went to the game to support and maybe get a chance to pinch hit. They struggled hitting that game, but started to rally in the last inning. Richie came in to pinch hit and drove in two runs. In that moment tears filled up in my eyes. I was so incredibly proud and simply amazed. ‘Young Money’ fell short that night, but they remember and are determined to win it this year as #RedStrong. They are wearing black arm bands that say 9 RED. Good luck this season- may you have ‘Angels In The Outfield’
Mark your calendars! Saturday July 30!!
So many ways you can be involved! Hope to see you all there!
