Thank you for fighting for Finley
Saying thank you to the Connellsville community that has helped with recent fundraisers for Finley’s Fighters is not enough — but we want to say thank you anyway.
The community has come together to host various fundraisers. Connellsville Area High School’s National Honor Society recently hosted a spaghetti dinner. Beth Shreve, the society sponsor, said the event raised about $1,200 — that is after expenses are deducted.
Finley’s Fighters also benefitted by $100 on a casino tour trip card, $128 on the 50/50 drawing, $700 from the basket raffles, $36 on Finley’s Fighters wrist bands, $114 in Finley’s Fighters T-shirts and about $345 in donations from the community.
That total comes in at $2,623 in profit. All that in only three hours in our little town of Connellsville.
We continue to be amazed and humbled by the kindness, caring and generosity of our community. They have fallen in love with Finley and made her their child — they have nothing but concern and hope for her future. These acts of donations and prayers are going to help us save or restore Finley’s sight.
Again, thank you, Connellsville.
Finley’s Fighters was organized for Finley Pletcher, who was diagnosed with a rare genetic eye disorder called Lebers Congenital Amaurosis (LCA) in 2009 .
