Merakey AVS is Off to the Races!
A big thank you to Heather and Paul Siffri for hosting their 6th annual Kentucky Derby Party to benefit Merakey Allegheny Valley School. This year’s event brought the six-year total to more than $70,000!
Heather’s sister is supported by Merakey AVS in the Slippery Rock, PA area. “My sister, Brooke, loves her life at Merakey AVS,” Heather commented. “I am so grateful for the excellent supports she receives, and the compassion and dedication of the staff members. This is one way I can give back to support this organization that means so much to our family.”
With donations contributed by the Siffris’ friends and family members, the Slippery Rock Program Center has expanded their sensory garden, built a walking path, acquired a wheelchair accessible glider, appliances, bikes and much more. Funds from the annual event also support projects at the Merakey AVS home where Brooke lives with her friends.
Hands down, this is one of the best parties of the year!
