The co founders and board of directors sponsored and paid for this event to show our appreciation for all the supporters who attended last year’s fundraiser event at the home of Bob and Cathy Dammeyer. Thanks, Bob and Cathy!
Due to the generosity of all who attended, 33 children received the life enhancing surgeries and other medical treatment they so desperately needed.
We had 2 surprise VIP guests in attendance.
Cielo, a 9 month old girl, had her severe cleft lip repaired by Dr Pablo Salamea.
Jose, a 7 year old boy was born with a malformed jaw which prevents him from chewing properly. He has received 1 surgery and will require 2 or three more to fix his jaw.
Both parents wanted to meet and thank all the people for helping their kids. There was a lot of love and appreciation shared between parents, kids and all the people in attendance. It was a special night!!
There are no words to describe how grateful all of us at HKIE are to all of our supporters and donors for making all of the medical treatments possible for these wonderful kids and their grateful families!
