Garage Sale - Sept 15 PDF Print E-mail
Garage Sale Fund Raiser
The garage sale was a fabulous success!
10 butterflies were sold at the garage sale.
Last minute prior to the garage sale, I thought about a raffle and
went door to door to businesses and had a raffle table at the sale. I
was able to get donated a pandora braclet w/ charm from Frank Adams,
20 movie passes from Crossgates, Chuck E Cheese party certificate,
bowling certificate from Town and Country, pottery place certificate,
sub way sub platter, free snowshoe rental from EMS, gift card from
Little Book House, 24 cut pizza from Pizza Gram, 2 signed limited
edition lacross sticks (Paul Gates) (who is in the hall of
fame),cut/color from Poima Salon. The drawing will be at the 29th
event.I am looking for more things to raffle off and if anyone has any
ideas, please let me know.

In addition to sales at garage sale of over $3300 and growing due to
ongoing raffle and left over things that I am posting on craigs
list/ebay...there were offers from Peggys Cleaning Service for any
housecleaning that Lori may feel comfortable with (no charge) for
unlimited duration.. A manager from a pharmacy near St. Peters offered
anything that she may need (I have his name and number for her).

The sale was amazing and people were so generous but I did notice that
a lot did not know of the Rodino's. We passed out flyers to spread the
word and how to donate. Hope this helps!
Thank you,

Helping Hands Car Show Supports the Rodino Family PDF Print E-mail

A car show on Saturday 7/14 at Crossgates Mall, benefited the Rodino family of Guilderland. The family has already lost their 8-year-old daughter to Huntington's disease, and now three other family members are struggling with the disease.

Organizers say they try to hold a few events a year to help the Rodino's in any way they can.

"Every once and a while we try to get a bunch of folks together to raise money for the family so we're doing what we can do," said organizer, Steve Wacksman. The event raised $510.00 for the local family.

Saturday's event featured trophies, music, a fifty/fifty raffle, and goody bags to the first 50 cars.

County Waste Helps the Rodino Family PDF Print E-mail

The Rodino’s were hit with a double blow this past year, with both son Anthony and daughter Gianna diagnosed with Huntington’s disease that took the life of their sister Rachel and has disabled their father Rick.  In an effort to ease community fundraising burdens and help the family, neighbors have gone to the monthly businesses that the Rodino’s are struggling to pay, and asked for a year of reduced fees as the family decided how to proceed.

County Waste immediately stepped up to the plate by offering a free year of rubbish removal for the family. The company normally does not do this but district manager Rich Gelowitz said the story pulled at his heart strings.
