Annual Gala Unsung Heroes
The Angel Fund presents its annual Angel Awards at the annual Gala to recognize those who have gone above and beyond without expecting any recognition or accolades.
This year, a 2011 Angel Award was presented to Dawn Mercier for her assistance in the success of the Sharon Timlin Memorial Road Race as the head of fundraising for the race.

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.
