Kaitlyn's 4th Birthday Dinner/Dance for SIDS: December 1, 2012
In 2012, about 180 of us revisited Circle D Farm for Kaitlyn's Dinner/Dance for SIDS. We raised a record $10,000 for SIDS Educational Services, the Center for Infant & Child Loss, and a small gift to Sinai Hospital Child Life Center. We could not have done it without an incredibly generous gesture by CICL Advisory Board Member Jonathan Melnick. Jonathan surprised us all with a live auction of a week's stay at his vacation home in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. And he took the generosity a step further by awarding not just one, but three packages to Buzz, Gary, and Tim! Thanks so much to the four of them and all of the other guests for their generosity! We introduced our first ever "Making a Difference" Award in 2012, giving it to Columbia Ski Club for their annual support of Kaitlyn's Dance. The night concluded with one last tribute to Kaitlyn. We released four sky lanterns... a beautiful finish for a beautiful evening.
