Boondock Walker a Proud Sponsor of Prayers from Maria Signature Events

Posted by: Mark Nead

Prayers From Maria Sunflower Soiree The Prayers from Maria Children’s Glioma Cancer Foundation Foundation hosted two extraordinary events this past weekend to raise awareness and funding for global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for the deadliest childhood brain tumors known as gliomas. Boondock Walker, for the second year, was honored to be among the Connoisseur Sponsors of these events.

The weekend kicked off Friday evening with the Sunflower Soiree, the signature VIP event, at Sunset Point in Rocky River overlooking a breathtaking view of Lake Erie. Guests enjoyed savory fare from Cleveland’s own Rocco Whalen & Friends. The event was complemented on Saturday evening by the Annual Sunflower Wine Festival, that showcased nationally renowned wineries and craft brews.

Our good friends, Ed and Megan McNamara, suffered the devastating loss of lost their precious daughter, Maria, to this disease in 2007. They are working diligently to make a difference by raising public awareness and bringing hope to children and their families who live with this disease. To date, the Foundation has awarded close to half a million dollars in grants to desperately needed research.

Because Prayers from Maria – Children’s Glioma Cancer Foundation is a non-profit organization, they rely heavily on the support of Volunteers. Help is always needed in marketing, fundraising and events.
