Maeci & Gracie's Give Back a Wish 1st Annual Softball Tournament

Hi all! Long time no speak. Just wanted to update my blog on our latest project. We are now Wish Granters! We met a family, The Bennett's (Chris, Stephanie & Gracie) at the hospital during Maeci's chemo treatments who ended up going on our Wish trip with us last November. We had an fabulous time! I have never experienced a vacation like that EVER! The girls were spoiled rotten (which they totally deserved) and we, the parents even got special treatment. In our minds, was also well deserved.


Make-a-Wish is an amazing organization that grants the wishes of children with life threatening diseases.  Our families have decided that God put us together for many reasons but the main reason is to GIVE BACK and to give hope and inspiration to others who are fighting. 

We had our first fundraiser on May 6th and it was a huge success.  We sponsored a 4 yr old little girl, Charla, with heart failure. We ended up with 24 teams!  We also had a Silent Auction with loads of great items! We GRANTED CHARLA'S WISH with the help of many giving people!

We are now working on granting Wish #2.

Granting a wish is an experience that we will never forget and we want to continue doing.  We thank God for giving us this opportunity and for blessing us with new friends.

Hi all! Our family and The Bennetts are hosting the "Maeci & Gracie's Give Back a Wish 1st Annual Softball Tournament on May 14, 2011. We were blessed with having our daughters wishes granted and we were able to travel to Disney World together! Make-a-Wish is an amazing organization and we want to grant the wish of another very deserving child with a life threatening disease. We would love for you to help us make this happen! I know alot of you do not live here in Indiana BUT there are other ways to help besides playing in the tournament or even attending.

1. "Wish" necklaces for sale.
2. You can make a donation at any Huntington Bank to the "Maeci & Gracie Give Back A Wish" account.
3. Pray that we are able to raise $6000 which is what it takes to grant one wish.
Please check out our website. You can read Maeci's and Gracie's stories, see the necklaces and read about our fund-raiser.


Thank you all so so much for reading, browsing our site and most of all for praying for our girls!

Maeci & Gracie Give Back

Hi all! I'm sitting here in the middle of an ice storm and my long lost blog popped into my head. And I have a new website to promote and what better place to promote it!  http://www.maeciandgracie.com/  So, here I am hoping my long lost followers will see this and run over to see what I've been up too.  It's been a crazy Summer and Fall! 
Some of you know, some of you don't, that Maeci was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in April 2010. We met Gracie during chemo treatments. Please take a moment and read their stories. We would really appreciate it.

Hope all you are doing fabulous and are having a great start to 2011!
