Merry & Bright Trivia Gala Night helps Foundation raise $2 million in 2020

December 19, 2020

We, at Cure Sanfilippo Foundation, are nearly speechless. $2 million in 2020 raised for research!

Thank you to everyone who supported the Foundation’s mission this year, especially partner families and supporters. Really incredible.

And you ended the year with a bang…$134,000 raised at last night’s Merry & Bright Trivia Gala Night! And that took the us over $2 million contributed to Cure Sanfilippo Foundation in 2020.

Thank you for all who attended & contributed. We were honored to share the Mission Moments segments with you last night (& will be sharing on social media here in the coming days). Sanfilippo is always a difficult topic. The videos provided by these partner families take such courage.

I’m so proud to know these great families living through the same very tough circumstance, yet still looking to make a difference. Their local friends and supporters far & wide truly raise their spirits.

I think Mom Lisa Rixer said it best during the final segment: “You make us stronger. You help us carry the weight of this disease. You keep our hope alive.”

Raising $2 million in 2020 was our goal at the beginning of the year, but seemed so far away and nearly impossible in March.

But time and again this year, you showed up for the children.

As we get ready to contract for two more large research grants before the end of year, these dollars will help continue to move these projects forward.

Our humble and sincere thanks. It is heartwarming to know people like you.

Have a wonderful, peaceful, and healthy Holiday and New Year! We’ll see you in 2021.
Glenn, Cara & the Cure Sanfilippo Foundation team
