“Fight With Food” Fundraising Campaign in Lake Mills

Paige Brien, a graphic artist from Lake Mills, has begun a “Fight with Food” fundraiser on Gavy’s behalf. She has created and donated posters and stickers to local restaurants owners who want to participate in her program. Customers who eat at participating restaurants will see a sticker on their menu that will ask customers to add one dollar to their meal total. At the end of her campaign, all of these collective dollars will be donated to baby Gavin.

Paige has asked that we recognize the efforts of these special contributors:

  • The Lake Mills Golf Course and Saucee’s Restaurant and Mr. Marc Nelson. Mr. Nelson has implemented this campaign throughout his establishment.
  • Russ’s Painting and Mr. Russ Christianson.
  • RONIN, LLC – for supporting the cost of marketing materials.

Paige will continue to update this list as other establishments join her “Fight With Food” campaign for sweet baby Gav. Our warmest thanks Paige. Thank you and to all your wonderful donors for being so generous to our sweet baby Gavin.

If you know a restaurant owner or are a restaurant owner who is interested in participating in this fundraising opportunity for Gavin, please contact Paige Brien at 920-648-6920 or Jane Schwalbach at janeschwalbach@yahoo.com.

Here’s an image of the poster and menu stickers:

Gavin is doing wonderful – Getting ready for Christmas

“You never know how heavy a burden you carry until its lifted off of you” – how true that is. Now that we are home, and Gavin is doing wonderful, wonderful, wonderful we can all live life as it should be lived. Its been such a relief to see him bounce back so quickly and better than he was before. We had a doctors apt today and they thought he looked great! In retrospect, I wonder if it was really colds or backlash to the problems that they operated on that was making him so uncomfortable, maybe a combo who knows. Either way he is just so full of life again. He is cooing and moving and eating like a champ and it couldn’t be more fun to watch his curious little mind at work. He is so interested in everything! Between him and Lauren they get like a million kisses a day! It is so fun to see him and Lauren light up at all the Christmas decorations! Lauren went to sleep last night with a candy cane under her pillow and dreams of Santa coming to her house. I can’t express enough how nice it is to be together again as a family, to have my daughter, son and husband together again, and happy and healthy and out of the hospital. (Bummer that Jay had to go back to work after the holiday weekend!) This is the best holiday gift that I could get! Hope this finds you all enjoying the super nice weather outside and spending it with those you love! I must admit I am looking somewhat forward to a little snow to get more into the spirit, but I am sure I will regret saying that. 🙂 I think Santa is coming to the Mills next week, so I think that Gavs is going to get his first glimpse at the big red man and Lauren will be elated, he comes in on horses, what could make Lauren happier than that?

Thank You Sam!

A lotta smiles were seen walking out of the Country Springs Hotel on November 11th as shrewd seasonal shoppers avoided the black-Friday-slapdash and instead, ‘Shopped for sweet baby Gavin’s Life’. Thank you Samantha Christianasen for warming baby Gav’s upcoming winter nights with your “Shop For Life” Consultant Open House Fundraiser, raising over $1,254.41. We are so grateful!
