The Luke Pier Foundation

On yesterday, I had the distinct pleasure to meet the wonderful Pier Family, whose son Luke suffers from Marfan Syndrome, a disorder of connective tissue that can effect the cardiovascular system, skeletal system and the ocular system. It is very important that people with Marfan Syndrome get treatment, if not, heart problems can cause sudden death.

I along with a number of other Charlotte event professionals will be assisting the Luke Pier Foundation with a major fundraising campaign to raise funds for a much needed surgery for Luke Pier. Luke is a handsome 13 year old with a beautiful smile and a great love for playing baseball and we must help him!!!

In October, The Luke Pier Softball Challenge will be the first event of the year. The fundraising goal for this event is $25,000. So, if you are a athlete, wannabe athlete or just want to support a worthy cause please assist us with our fundraising efforts for Luke. If you are interested in putting a team together to play in the softball game or if you'd like to provide a donation, please feel free to contact me via email at info@sjbweddingsandevents. Please keep checking back for more details about the Softball Challenge.
