If it was not for the help of organizations such as Miracle Travel Works, we would not be able to seek specialized care anywhere other than our local hospital, and our beautiful, intelligent, funny little girl would not be here with us today.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
On Saturday, October 13, local members of Miracle Travel Works are hosting a silent auction event with live music, food and drinks. All proceeds will benefit children nationwide with terminal and chronic illnesses who are required to travel in order to receive the specialized medical care they need.
The festive and philanthropic evening, held at 6581 Pepperell Lane in Cincinnati Ohio, will offer guests a chance to participate in a silent auction with items donated from local merchants like Organized Living and Proforma Albrecht. 100% of proceeds, including those from ticket sales, go directly towards furthering their cause and helping those in need. Tickets are only $25 each. Elite tickets are available for $40 each and include a parting gift. Both options can be purchased online now at http://miracletravelworks.org/Cincy2012.html. Additionally, guests will enjoy live music by local cover band More Cowbell (morecowbellband.com).
Miracle Travel Works has helped more than a dozen families, including the Cotton family in Iowa. Here’s what Stephanie Cotton had to say, “Our daughter was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer at four months old. Her medical treatment has obviously put a very large financial strain on our family throughout the years. If it was not for the help of organizations such as Miracle Travel Works, we would not be able to seek specialized care anywhere other than our local hospital, and our beautiful, intelligent, funny little girl would not be here with us today.”

About Miracle Travel
Miracle Travel Works (miracletravelworks.org) is a small but growing organization of friends and family members, all working and donating time entirely for free. After witnessing firsthand the financial difficulties of medical expenses for children with terminal and chronic illnesses, and the travel involved, Miracle Travel Works was formed to make a bigger contribution to help those families in need of assistance. They believe that every child should get the best available treatment to put them on the path to better health and that parents should have the opportunity to be there with them through it all.
