Simply Delicious Pie Raffle for 22q Awareness
Simply Delicious Pies supports Cleveland Clinic Children’s because of the great work they do in supporting and helping kids and their families, because of the research they conduct to prevent and cure diseases, and in honor of our own heart warrior-our niece, Aubrey.
Aubrey was born with a condition called 22q deletion syndrome. This condition manifests itself in many ways-one of the most prominent symptoms is the appearance of congenital heart defects (CHDs). Her parents-our sister, Kate, and our brother-in-law, Andy-were not aware that she had this condition prior to her birth. They certainly did not expect that at just 3 months old, their daughter would require open heart surgery to patch the hole.
In fact, more than 50% of all children born with congenital heart defect will require at least one invasive surgery in their lifetime. Aubrey is our heart champion, but she is one in 100 kids born with a heart defect. We are very thankful that she is now a thriving, healthy, beautiful 4 year old little girl.
In honor of Aubrey, and for all the families with experiences similar to ours, we ask that you consider donating $22 dollars, or whatever you can, to benefit the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Every dollar of your donation* will also serve as an entry into our raffle for your choice of a year of free pie (to be distributed as one 8-inch item per month for 12 months), or one pie shipped at no cost to you (contiguous 48 state only) and will be specifically marked for pediatric cardiology.
Your support today will help allow a skilled team of medical professionals using state-of-the art technology and programs to help infants and adolescents.
Please join us in supporting one of the best children’s hospitals in the country. On behalf of Aubrey and all the children & families affected by congenital heart defects, thank you!
**Prize: one year of free pie, to be distributed as one 8-inch item per month for twelve months. Alternate prize: one pie shipped at no cost to winner. Online donations will have entries generated for them. No purchase necessary to win; in-store entry available. Contact for more details.
