Lilly Pulitzer Sip n Shop

August 13, 2016

I want to invite all of my Richmond friends to a great event going on today at the Lilly Pulitzer store in Short Pump.  Enjoy sips & sweets while you shop and support the Ronald McDonald House.  If you haven't been to the RMH on Monument Avenue I urge you to check it out.  They host families while their children undergo long term treatment at MCV/VCU Health.  Various groups provide home cooked meals, activities, and a sense of comfort and normalcy during an otherwise stressful time.  I know there are so many charities out there and you have to find one that pulls at your heart.

This is one of those for me.  While we never experienced any extended stays, Wells underwent multiple cranial surgeries as an infant an hour away from home and Tagg has had his own two 4-5 day hospital stays from illness and asthma here in Richmond.  It feels like ages and ages and getting just a taste of that I can see what a tremendous hardship it is for families with children undergoing long-term care especially when they are away from home.
