All He Heard Was Music

Dawn Tucker

Like many new mothers I cried the day my son was born, but they were tears filled with sadness and fear. I knew there was a fifty-fifty chance my son would be afflicted with a genetic anomaly. Afflicted...why that word?

Sunday, July 11 @ Ceasar Creek State Park, Waynesville

By the time you finish reading this, two people will have been diagnosed with a blood cancer; Leukemia, Lymphoma or Myeloma. What’s worse, someone will have lost their courageous battle with one of these horrible diseases. We can’t let that happen anymore. The difference between finding a cure and having to watch more people be diagnosed with a blood cancer could be just one more dollar away. What if you found the dollar that changed everything? What if we could tell everyone diagnosed with a blood cancer that they don’t have anything to worry about because we found the cure? You can help find the dollar by going here and donating to our cause.

Every year, thousands of supporters rally together to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. In America, over 30,000 men, women, adults, and children live with the debilitating disease. Since the 1950s, great strides have been made in finding a cure and major advancements in medicine have more than doubled the median age of those living with the chronic lung disease.

As we head into a new year, we thought we should include a few words about fundraising and donations. The Miracle League is a 501C3 organization and is very dependent on donations for its operation. Although the League Director and Assistant Director receive modest compensation for their involvement, the vast majority of the people helping out before, during, and after the season are volunteers. Less than half of the League’s annual expenses are covered by player registration fees, so the League is heavily reliant on donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations.
If you would like to make a donation, you can send a check to the Central Ohio Miracle League, PO Box 1303, Dublin, OH 43017. If you know of an individual, company, or charitable organization that could assist the League, please contact us at

April 11th through the 29th five local financial institutions are joining forces for the first annual Bank to Bank Food and Funds Drive, benefiting the Freestore Foodbank. This collaboration between PNC Bank, KeyBank, U.S. Bank, Kemba Credit Union, and Fifth Third Bank has one purpose: to fight hunger in our community. Food or monetary donations may be made at bank locations, or monetary donations can be taken online.
Harvest for Hunger, one of the nation's largest annual food and funds drives, has reached a new record of $2.7 million. However, more help is needed as an increasing number of people are turning to shelters and food pantries for assistance during tough times. This campaign will help provide this critical help to those in Northeast and North Central Ohio.
The Annual Mid-Ohio Foodbank Golf Classic takes place on Monday, August 22, 2011, at the Medallion Club in Westerville. The event includes a luncheon, golf on a beautiful course, and an awards dinner.
This annual event benefits programs like Second Servings, the Foodbank’s prepared food recovery program, and Produce Express, a fresh produce delivery program. Every year, dedicated volunteers recruit golfers and prize donors and coordinate the outing. This outing is the Foodbank’s only special event fundraiser.
If you sign up by April 30th, the early bird price is only $2,000 for a foursome or $500 for an individual. After April 30th, the price will be $2,200 for a foursome and $550 for individuals. It definitely pays to sign up early. Your participation helps feed Ohioans in need. Registration includes golf, lunch, dinner, premiums, and on-course beverages.
