Moorpark, CA (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
Hazel is a three-year-old girl that was recently diagnosed with Stage-3 Neuroblastoma in late April. Located in the same hometown as Hazel and deeply touched by her story, the Golden Meadows Retrievers breeding kennel is proud to announce a fundraising raffle, where all proceeds will go directly to Hazel's Fund, a program of the Talbert Family Foundation.
Neuroblastoma is a malignant (cancerous) tumor that develops from nerve tissue in the brain. Most commonly occurring in infants and children, when Hazel was recently diagnosed with this catastrophic disease, the owners of the Golden Meadows Retrievers felt compelled to help, in whatever way they could.
“Golden Meadows was truly touched by Hazel's story,” says Barbie Hokie, one of the founders of Golden Meadows Retrievers. “We couldn’t be happier about helping to raise money for her family.”
In all, Golden Meadows Retrievers is assisting Hazel, her family and the Talbert Family Foundation, a philanthropic organization that is dedicated to providing direct financial support to local families suffering from catastrophic illnesses, by selling raffle tickets – the winner of the raffle will win a very special Golden Meadows golden retriever puppy named Ellie May!
Raffle tickets will sell for $50.00 each or there’s a “buy it now” option standing at $10,000. The raffle drawing will be held on June 22, 2013.
