A Day In the Country

A Day In The Country was a private fundraising event. With 2 live bands and Bret Michaels on stage the 180+ guests had a wonderful time.

Hosted by Dillons Aunt and Uncle, Mark and Dawn Pietroske participants had a chance to win prizes through silent auctions and bucket raffles. Food and drinks were abundant all day.

We were able to chat with Bret and he waved us up on stage to join him in entertaining the crowd.  The pictures say it all. He also invited us into his camper to chat and is most genuine in all of his efforts to help others. Through Bret Michaels’ Life Rocks charitable foundation & his generosity, George and I will be able to help ALOT MORE PEOPLE.

We set up our display booth and raised anaphylaxis awareness and educated people on how to administer an epinephrine auto injector (epi pen).  We also informed folks that we now hold training and certification classes FOR FREE. Benefit participants got to see Dillons 2 motocross bikes and his snowmobile and view several photographs that really portrayed his loving and outgoing personality.

Definitely a day we will never forget.

Special thanks to Mark and Dawn Pietroske, Cindy Johnson and Kevin Willert, the bands Groove Epidemic, Fine Line, Bret Michaels and the countless amount of volunteers that worked tirelessly to help Mark and Dawn pull this event off.  George and I are extremely grateful for everything and everyone that aided in any way.  We are excited to be able to help so many unfortunate people, continue to sponsor scholarships and educate people with the ‘Do it For Dillon’ curriculum on anaphylaxis recognition and epi pen administration.

We may not be able to do it all;

We may not be able to do it everywhere;
