A heartfelt message from Cheryl

I need your help!!!!  “Our Laughter in the Rain” is my nonprofit 501-C3 organization that annually provides a very special and unique night of connections, encouragement and hope , for women in the Richmond and tri- cities area, who are going through treatment for cancer.  God has called me to this purpose…He daily sends me women who are desperate for this night…

On Sunday Sept. 25, we will be having our annual gala at the Short Pump Hilton Ballroom.

We have 2 amazing guest speakers, special music and an unbelievable night planned…. Strategically orchestrated to touch and change lives…

We are all living in uncertain financial times …Gas is at an all time high…Interest rates are continuing to climb BUT that does not stop cancer…

These warriors have experienced disappointment and seclusion due to having cancer and especially with the danger of getting Covid…

They have little to no physical and intimate connection with other warriors and they desperately need this night!

I personally have a very difficult time asking for donations because I am always the giver but I cannot give these warriors this incredible night WITHOUT your help!

We do NOT charge our warriors and survivors for this event as many could not afford to come if there was a fee.

I have learned from experience, that when you give and bless someone, it actually blesses you even more than the one who receives your gift…

Last year during Covid, this event maxed out at 375 warriors…This year we are preparing for a minimum of 500 warriors. I am asking EACH one of you, to help sponsor this night that literally changes lives!  Because I believe the scripture that tells us “ The world of the generous gets larger and larger, but the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller .. Proverbs 11:24, I BOLDLY ask you to give a financial donation and help us with this very special night!

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart…Together we can change lives!
