Emmy Gaffey Foundation -Glenbard Parent Series - 50% of all proceeds will go to GPS
GPS has been near and dear to my heart since December of 2013, when my daughter Emmy lost her battle to depression. I am constantly reminded of the wonderul things that Cares/ Glenbard Parent Series is doing for Parents and young adults in our area. They have made a huge difference and with the help of the Emmy Gaffey Foundation, we can continue to raise money every year to change lives. Emmy was a fighter and I'm always reminded of the fact that she is making a difference from heaven. Sometimes its subtle and sometimes its not, as only Emmy could be:) Evrey penny of contributions given to GPS is directly used for the young adults and their families.
