Masquerade Ball to Kick of Blessings From the Battle Foundation
Blessings from the Battle, a newly organized 501(c)(3) , presents its 1st annual, black-tie Masquerade Ball on September 15th 2018 from 7pm-11pm at the Clearfield / Curwensville Country Club.
Blessings From the Battle Foundation was formed in honor of Brody Lanich, a 7 year old Clearfield resident who recently completed a two year battle against the rare childhood cancer neuroblastoma. After an exhausting life interruption for the Lanich family, Brody has been declared cancer free. "Most of your normal life gets put on hold while you help your child fight for his life", explains Brody's mother, Kristen Lanich. A year and a half leave from her job as Kindergarten teacher at St. Francis School placed immediate stress on finances.
The community of Clearfield opened their hearts and provided monetary support, meals, help with chores and home repairs and most importantly, prayer for the Lanichs." We were overwhelmed at the love and support we received, and we now want to partner with others to support and bless the many families of Clearfield County who also have children struggling with life threatening diseases", she continues.
So many things overwhelm the family, for example yard work, car repairs, pet care, travel expense, grocery shopping and food prep. Families may also need counseling services, help paying for tutoring as attending school becomes impossible. Some suffer the inability later in life to have children and we would love to help with adoption expenses.
One more area the foundation hopes to support is with pediatric specific supplies and at local hospitals as well as better coordinated protocol between major treatment centers and the local hospital.
" Many businesses have provided support for our Masquerade Ball and we are very excited to share the evening with everyone", Mrs. Lanich exclaims.
The event features dancing with music by the 14th Street Jazz Band, heavy Hors D'oeuvres, 2 complementary drinks, close up magic and Corn Hole, all included in the price of your ticket. Additional entertainment for suggested donation to the foundation includes Caricaturist ($5), Psychic/Palm Reader ($5), Putting Contest ($2), Chinese Lanterns ($2), Sparklers ($1), Chinese Auction ($1), Popcorn ($1). Tickets are on sale now for $30 per ticket.

"We invite individuals and businesses to partner with us to make our vision a reality for families faced with serious medical diagnoses. With donated, as well as raised funds, we can reinvest in the children and families of Clearfield County. This cycle of generosity can only make us stronger!
