Last year, with your help we...

- Donated about 230 gifts to over 40 children in our community!  

- Made a significant donation to Cohen Children's Hospital to help fulfill the Christmas wish lists of some of their patients.


- Gifted special "wish list" opportunities to children who wouldn't have been able to afford them otherwise: 6 months of gymnastics classes for a 2nd grade girl, private voice lessons for a talented middle school singer, and keyboard lessons for a 6 year old girl.  


- Provided 2 scholarships to St. Peter's Little Learners program, where Rosie went to school last year - for a 2 year old girl & a 3 year old boy.

"all is bright" night


Our first annual "All is Bright" night was so incredibly powerful. Rosie’s “Angel-versary” was marked by 100's of lights shining brightly in her memory all across the country and helped to bring some much needed peace at a difficult time. 


We will again be distributing luminary bags and tea lights this year and ask that you place one in your window or in front of your home and say a prayer for our sweet Rosie.


We'll be giving these out to all of our "Halo Helpers" contributors, but even if you cannot participate in "Halo Helpers" and would like a bag - please do not hesitate to ask.

If you're dropping off your gift for "Halo Helpers" - there will also be a box of luminary bags for you to take. If you decide to mail your gift or live out of town, we will be sure to send you one in time for our special night!


42 Runners & 45 Spectators came out to participate in our first annual Rosie Strong Tough Mudder.  It was an incredible day for all and we raised over $25k in honor of our Rosie girl
