The tournament, which was put together in less than 3 weeks, was amazing. The community outpouring was overwhelming. We had 80 golfers at the event and many more attend just to be there. Food was donated by our local bar-b-que restaurant as well as so many prizes for a raffle. The day was incredible. There were so many there to not only support us, but to remember Avery. In total we raised over $8,000 for Avery’s Place and hope to have the playground complete by the end of the year.
We live in a small town where to do anything “fun” you normally have to drive to a bigger community. We use to joke about living were we live and how boring it is. But after experiencing what we have over the last 4 months, I love this community. There have been so many people here to support us; I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. We plan to hold a golf tournament every year now in October. I hope to bring more awareness to October being Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.Tomorrow, I will attend my first official “baby loss” event. My husband and I are attending with friends who too are a part of this baby loss community. A community unlike our town, that I still wish I wasn’t a part of but one that I have also found support and love in.
