  • Ciara’s One Year Memorial and 13th Birthday Celebration

    3pm-6pm, January 13, 2018
    The Edge Fitness Clubs Trumbull, Monroe Turnpike Trumbull

    Help us raise $13,000 in honor of Ciara’s 13th birthday on January 13, 2018!

    We had no idea that we would lose Ciara only 3 days after her 12th birthday. It was a magical weekend for all of us – filled with love and so much of Ciara’s infectious giggles. It is hard to believe that almost a year has passed since I have been able to hold her and hear her sweet voice. This Holiday season has been incredibly challenging and there are more difficult times to come as we approach her birthday and the one-year anniversary of her passing. But my brave daughter taught me many things, including perseverance and the importance of celebrating life each and every day.

    On January 13th we will be celebrating Ciara’s 13th birthday and honoring her one-year memorial. All are invited to join us at the family friendly gathering which includes live music, light dinner, cash bar and Lantern Lighting at 5:45pm. You can also bring or make a Memory Rock at the event for our Memorial Garden. There will be a Silent Auction with 13 super cool items. Make a donation to Ciara’s Light Foundation at the door and be entered into a drawing for an overnight stay at Kalahari Resorts in the Poconos.

    Please RSVP here if you can join us. If not, please consider making a donation here.
