April 28th, 2012, 6:30-10:30 pm

St. Luke Parish, Long Valley NJ

Come out for a night of food, drinks, entertainment and … try your chance at winning great prizes!

This fund raising dinner event is for the benefit of Glenn Lightner, a 13 year old Long Valley Middle School student, who has been fighting anaplastic ependymoma Grade III brain cancer since 2007.   Glenn and his family are currently in Belgium for an alternative treatment option estimated at over $100,000. Insurance will not be covering his therapy, leaving his parents to fully bear the extraordinary financial costs.

Please join us on Saturday, April 28th, 2012, from 6:30-10:30, at St. Luke Parish.    We will be holding a dinner event, “Rally in the Valley for Glenn Lightner.” This event will include dinner, drinks (beer, wine, and soda), entertainment, a tricky tray and silent auction.  The Long Valley Junior Women’s Club  is supporting this event and is running the silent auction.   Cost is $50.00 per person with all proceeds going directly to the Lightner family.   Tickets are being presold only. This event is for ages 21 and older.

This event is being co-sponsored by the Smile Forever Foundation, a local 501(C) (3) not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing financial assistance to local families impacted due to cancer or other terminal illnesses. Since it’s founding in 2004 by the family of Long Valley residents Steven and Michele Triant, the Smile Forever Foundation has raised over $850,000, providing financial assistance to over 250 local families stricken with cancer or other illnesses. The Smile Forever Foundation, which is based in and focuses on Northern New Jersey families, relies on volunteers, donations and sponsor support for various fundraising events such as dinners & walks.
