Family Sanctioned Events / Fundraisers
Home Remodel Project
2109 Hoyt St, Lakewood
The community has come together to plan & execute a fantastic remodel of the Watchmans' home. An addition is being lovingly built onto their existing home so that Andre will have an accessible place to continue his healing & progress once he leaves Craig Hospital. You can help by coming to work, bringing food/drinks for the work crews, or just showing up to lend your moral support & witness the amazing things that are happening there.
For more information, contact Cindy Main: firstname.lastname@example.org or watch for updates on Facebook & Twitter. Gift cards to Lowes/Home Depot will be gratefully accepted at the job site on Saturdays or you may mail them to Cindy at 2498 Hoyt St, Lakewood, CO 80215.

Please join us for a brainstorming/planning meeting where we can discuss ideas for fundraising & how to best support Andre and his family. If you have an idea, some enthusiasm, some free time, some contacts or some skills, please join us!
Rides are available. Send a message to: email@example.com or post on www.facebook.com/andresbridge & we'll make arrangements.
At this time, we are not inviting the media to attend these events. This is for planning & sharing ideas only and we'd rather not have the distraction of cameras & interviews. Thank you.
