High Fives

Whenever our young friend Tanner thought people did something really awesome, he'd give them a high five. So, in his memory, we'd like to give Tanner's High Fives to some truly amazing people:


* Thank you to Tanner's Babci (the Polish name for Grandma) and Pop-Pop for donating their credit card points to us

* Welcome Andrew Eichele and thanks for joining us at The Lexiebean Foundation. Andrew is helping us coordinate this year's golf outing.

* Cathy & Jen from Salon Danielle Loren, located at 102 Woodbury Road in Hicksville, NY 11801, 516-938-2822. For the second year in a row, Cathy and Jen are collecting donations at their salon for The Lexiebean Foundation. Please stop by and show your support!

* Anthony Falabella is donating $15.00 from his birthday money in memory of his sister, Lexie. Happy Birthday, Anthony, and thank you!

KidsHelpingKidsKids Helping Kids Spotlight


This month, we wanted to shine a spotlight on a child who knew Lexie and was so inspired by her that she decided to help other kids just like her.


"My daughter, Jillian, made her First Holy Communion with Lexie. Lexie touched Jillian so much that when we heard she passed away, my daughter started growing her hair to donate to Locks of Love in Lexie's memory. Jillian said, "Alexia looked like a princess on her Communion, so I want to help another child look like one." Please let us know how we can get the word out there about The Lexiebean Foundation. Please let us help!"

Helping kids and their families is what we're all about, and we like to think that every time we do it, Lexie is somewhere, smiling.

Dear Friends,


The trees are beginning to bud, the daffodils and crocuses are blooming, and the hint of warm weather is in the air. It's April! We've got so many things to be excited about this month (no fooling!) that we can't wait to share them with you.


Our 2nd Annual Wish Upon A Star Gala is right around the corner! On April 20th, 2012, we'll be gathering at Leonard's of Great Neck for a wonderful night full of cocktails, dancing, and much more. We'll have over 40 raffles, including a Day at the Spa, Game Systems for the kids, Movie Night for the whole family, tickets to a Yankee, Met, or Islander game, and much more.

Our live auction will feature a weekend in the city with a limousine ride to and from the hotel, a Broadway play and dinner for two at one of Gordon Ramsey's world famous restaurants. You could also win a fabulous North Shore fishing excursion or a new roof for your home--up to 1500 square feet!

You also wouldn't want to miss our 50/50 raffle, wine pull, top shelf spirits, a complete sit down dinner, dancing and more! This is a fabulous night out, and one that we would feel honored to have you share with us.

Please come celebrate the life of one little girl, Lexie, who inspired us to make things better for children suffering from pediatric cancer and their families. Visit our website at www.lexiebeanfoundation.org or call LeaAnn at 516-852-8227 and get your tickets now.


Some of the other events that we're planning include another 5K Walk/Run fundraiser, a carnival, and a golf outing. Check out the sidebar for more details, and keep checking back at our website for the latest event updates.


We are blessed to work with some pretty awesome people. Read about some families who have found very creative ways to help us in Tanner's High Fives.
