Keep the spirit of the season alive & well…
Be an Angel of Joy to sick children
& their families this Christmas!
Giving a gift of any amount allows the Aubrey Rose Foundation to relieve the financial burden families with critically ill children carry. The result – a Merrier Christmas with their child and family which is a welcome change to the daily issues they face.
The mission of the Aubrey Rose Foundation is, and always has been, to help families that are caring for medically-fragile children suffering from life-threatening illnesses, while maintaining a focus on family unity.
The Aubrey Rose Foundation gives families a means to lift the weight of life’s complexities during their difficult time by providing emotional and financial support.
Parents (like the one who shared with us the below) and kids (like a different foundation friend above) need our help & we’re blessed to have the support of our donors and volunteers as we do all we can to meet their needs.
“I was very blessed to receive help from Aubrey Rose for my son’s medical bills. I cried when we got the letter, such beautiful words from people that really know and understand how it feels to have a child going through sickness. I am so very grateful for the help we received that my family and I keep Aubrey Rose Foundation in our prayers to continue this beautiful work. Thank you so much and I know God will continue to bless you . My boys loved the stuffed animals they got; it was an unexpected blessing they received and they were so excited. I really can’t find the words to express my gratitude and what I feel in my heart about this experience that I had, I prayed everyday for a way to get the hospital bills covered and I know God sent you all to help us, I am forever grateful!” Erica
On November 11, 2016, the Aubrey Rose Foundation celebrated 15 years of giving back during our 15th Annual “Let’s Dance for the Heart of It!” An Evening in Paris celebration at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.
“What began as a glimmer of an idea has become a bright shining light of hope and help to so many struggling and in need!” (Jerry Hollenkamp, ARF Founder)
A HUGE THANK YOU! to the over 500 Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentuckians joined the foundation’s board and volunteers to celebrate a decade and a half of helping those in need.
Our guests enjoyed a gorgeous venue, delicious dinner and dessert, silent auction, music and dancing commemorating the tireless efforts of the Aubrey Rose Foundation.
We also marked this momentous anniversary by honoring 5 area pediatric care physicians that were of the many nominated by tristate residents for our prestigious “Doctor of the Year” award, with 1 being honored as “Above & Beyond” in pediatric care excellence.
“Physicians like these are crucial to the unbelievable number of critically ill children and their families in need of help– their recognition is very well-deserved!” (Nancy Hollenkamp, ARF founder)
