I’ve always considered it an honor to represent my clients. Through almost 20 years of assisting people with the process of buying and selling homes, I have helped numerous people and friends and I am graciously allowed into or further into their lives. Last year, I had the pleasure of representing The Dodd family with selling their home and buying a new one. During the process, their son Grayson was diagnosed with leukemia. Grayson was a huge fan of the Power Rangers and fought like a hero. During his fight with leukemia, The Foundation For Strength provided a treasured memory and took him to Toy’s R Us where volunteers showed up in Power Ranger costumes to take him on a shopping spree, allowing him to buy all the toys he wanted with his heroes. It was an epic and incredible day for him and his family. Tragically, shortly thereafter, Grayson lost his fight with childhood leukemia.
To try and help pay back The Foundation For Strength for the precious memory of that special day, The Dodd Family started to raise donations in Grayson’s memory. Dubbing it, “Fill Grayson’s Stocking.” Last year, we assisted in collected donations at our office, and the outpouring of support was overwhelming. People that weren’t even clients, but just happened to see our Facebook post brought donations. It was incredible, and it was humbling.
This year, the Dodds are holding a fundraiser for the Foundation for Strength and we are supporting it again. The fundraiser called “Superheroes With Wings” will be at Buffalo Wild Wings in Westland, this Saturday, August 5th, starting at 11 AM and continuing throughout the day. 30% of all purchases will be donated to The Foundation For Strength. There will be raffle baskets, live music and tent drink specials. There will be superheroes visiting during lunch, a fowling tournament from 3:30pm-5:30pm, music from the Crampton Brothers at 6pm and the Killer Flamingos hit the stage at 8pm!
To help raise money for this awesome cause, we will be donating a 55” 4K TV, a stainless steel wine/beverage cooler, and an Elemental bluetooth speaker boombox to be raffled off with all the proceeds benefiting The Foundation For Strength. Please come out, buy a raffle ticket, and help celebrate the memory of an amazing little superhero with wings.
