December 2011
Rich Kennedy
Dear Angel Fund Family,
As the year comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support for The Angel Fund. As an Angel Fund family member, you have been an inspiration to me and to the Angel Fund Board.

To those who have organized events for The Angel Fund  and put in tireless hours of planning, we are truly indebted to you. To those who have attended our many events throughout the year, we thank you for taking the time to show your support, and to those who send in contributions, large or small, it means so much to us. Without all of you, we would not have been able to give Dr. Brown and his research team over $1,000,000 in the past two years.

Those living with ALS and those who have passed are our true heroes. These are the people we are fighting for.

There have been significant strides in ALS research, but we are not there yet. I ask for your support again next year so we can continue our fight against this dreadful disease. Our mission continues and you can help us unlock the key to this disease - the cure for ALS. 


From our family to yours, have a wonderful holiday.

Warm regards,

Rich Kennedy

H.O.P.E for ALS  

For five years, artist Lainey Hunter has worked with Angel Fund Family children to create beautiful works of art with reverse glass paintings. The object of the project is to Help Our Parents Erase ALS.


H.O.P.E. for ALS enables these children to express themselves on paintings they create on the glass. Lainey instructs the children on the art of reverse painting on glass, and the result is beautiful pieces of art that express the child's love for their relative living with ALS or in memory of someone who has lost his or her battle with this disease. These original windows are an important part of the silent auction each year at The Angel Fund Annual Gala.


The children can feel proud of their work and, at the same time, achieve a sense of accomplishment knowing that they have helped raise much-needed funds that will be used to help find a cure for the disease.


The Angel Fund is now offering these beautiful works of art as prints for all to treasure. The prints will be part of the online store that is being created for The Angel Fund website. If you would like to purchase a print today, please contact us and we will provide you with more details. The online store will be available after the new year.
