Nice write-up in the The Washington Times!

The Washington Time's Thom Loverro who writes the sports blog "Lovey Land" shares his thoughts about Jamie Moyer and the DC fundraiser to support Camp Forget-Me-Not/Camp Erin DC! Check it out!


April 14th Washington, DC fundraiser a great success!

On Tuesday, April 14th, The Moyer Foundation teamed up with international law firm Jones Day to raise funds and awareness for Camp Forget-Me-Not/Camp Erin DC. Over 100 guests joined Karen and Jamie Moyer at Jones Day's beautiful roof top terrace facilities. Good food and cocktails were shared among the guests who had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items and one live auction item auctioned off by Jamie Moyer himself! Nearly $25,000 was raised to support the expansion of Camp Erin to DC that will serve over 50 grieving kids and teens in the DC area in 2009! The Moyer Foundation is thrilled to partner with DC's own Wendt Center and their Camp Forget-Me-Not program to continue providing this much needed service to youth grieving the death of a loved one in the DC community.

Many thanks to Jones Day for donating space, food and drink for the event. A heartfelt thanks to Mike Gurdak for his dedication and support in bringing this night together!

Pictures coming soon!
