      Chasin A Dream Foundation Raises $250,000

      For Local Children Battling Life Threatening Illnesses

        COVID delayed the much anticipated annual fundraiser, We Rock As Lions, for Chasin A
      Dream and the community rallied to support the luncheon held on April 4 at the Wyndham Grand
        The event celebrates the bravery of local children battling cancer, cystic fibrosis, heart disease
      and other life threatening illnesses and disabilities. Children, ranging in age from 2-year-old Grace
      Renfrow currently undergoing grueling treatment for stage IV neuroblastoma to 17-year-old Geo
      Marquea battling leukemia, brought tears of joy to guests and cheers could be heard throughout
      the hotel as they rocked the runway.
        The runway event culminated in a jaw dropping performance by 17-year-old Mikayla Beatty
      singing I Am A Warrior (Patty Smyth) with the room erupting in applause as all of the children
      took the stage. We Rock As Lions is 100 percent about celebrating the children and one of the
      things guests look forward to each year.
        Chasin A Dream was founded in 2016 by Lori Griffith after spending the majority of her career
      in healthcare and witnessing firsthand the devastating effects a life threatening diagnosis has on
