Day of Givingdollar

This was the first year that Reflections Of Grace was fortunate enough to participate in the Day of Giving, sponsored by the Pittsburgh Foundation and the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County. For every donation that our supporters made, we received a portion of the matching funds, allowing each contribution to make an even bigger impact. Many thanks for everyone’s incredible generosity, which enabled us to receive $4,438.45! We are ever so grateful for your kindness as we strive to march forward in the fight against pediatric brain cancer.


A huge thank you to all of the golfers, volunteers, hole sponsors, table sponsors, and gift-in-kind donors that participated in the 4th Annual Golf For Grace. Because of your generosity and support, the 4th Annual Golf For Grace raised $7,000 and attracted 24 foursomes, making the event a continued success! This year's golf outing was held at The Madison Club on September 22, 2012 to raise awareness that September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Gold ribbons -- the official symbol of childhood cancer awareness -- were incorporated throughout the event, along with tee signs displaying pediatric brain cancer statistics.

Max & Erma's Fundraiser

Max Ermas

Thank you to everyone who recognized National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by dining at the Max and Erma's location in Monroeville on September 9, 2012. When our supporters presented the customized Foundation coupon, 20% of the proceeds were donated to Reflections Of Grace. Our event raised $322.52 to benefit the families of children with pediatric brain cancer. The restaurant was definitely overflowing with Reflections Of Grace and we hope that everyone enjoyed their tasty meals! Although we strive to highlight Childhood Cancer Awareness during the month of September, please continue to spread the word all year long. Visit our awareness page for ideas that can make an impact during any month of the calendar.
