It almost doesn’t feel real that the First Annual Wylder Nation Foundation Event is only a few weeks away. July 12th is right around the corner!!
As we are knee deep in preparation we are excited for what the night has in store. This is going to be the start of something great for kiddos like Wylder, I can just feel it.
HUGE shout out to our sponsors for the event!
When Wylder passed I thought the idea of his future was gone too. First day of school, baseball, best friends, wedding … everything. But truth is, his future is just different now. It is in part this foundation, helping others, and so much more. It is the idea that his life created change for the good for others. It is a community of people (like you) that surround us and continue to grow and believe in all things Wylder. With the outlook and prayer that one day a baby WILL get his or her “traditional” future because of Wylder and Wylder Nation. His future is forever.
We are excited to meet those of you that have gotten tickets that have followed this blog for years, those friends we have not seen in a long time, those we love so much … and everyone in between. To have you all in one room, for one cause … well, my cup runith over. We are excited to show our ideas and perspective of how the course of a diagnosed child’s medical journey can be different with your support. And we thank you. Thank you ALL for your support from near and far, and for believing in all things Wylder. We have said it before, and we will say it again, none of this would be possible without YOU! Thank you.
I just HAVE to share that Chelsea and Eileen will be there too!! Trek and Quinn’s momma’s. Sarah (Jacob’s momma) desperately wanted to come too, but is in the wheel house with baby #3’s due date right around the corner. We feel so blessed that this extended family of ours will be there in support. We share an incomprehensible commonality, and it just becomes more clear that we will all continue to support one another forever and always. And Chels is bringing baby girl Vesper, eek! Can’t wait to squeeze her. Koa’s got a date now.
If you haven’t got your tickets, you can get them at the link below. They are $125 each and that includes dinner, drinks, live entertainment and so much more. We are excited to announce we are filling up so don’t wait to get your tics.
A few questions have come up about the attire for the evening. It is formal but not black tie. Suites and cocktail dresses are perfect.
There may be a few hiccups being our FIRST annual event, but we are hopeful you will see how much love is being poured into this. I believe that children battling NPA and other storage disease will be impacted for the good in the very near future. They will know there are people fighting for them, searching, and supporting. Journeys for these children and their families will change and become easier as we search for options, treatments and more individualized care!
As we work late into the evenings in preparation we feel you Wylder James. We wish we had you in our arms, but we will persevere in your honor. We pray this will be a successful evening that will be the start of something bigger for other “Littles” because of YOU. We love you and we miss you. See you in our dreams, and in the lights at the event. xoxo
