Vote for Hannah's Hope
Hannah's Hope Fund for GAN Vote-Now 2 March 7, 2013                
Greg Floyd of the Capital Region's WRGB, News-6, has selected Hannah's Hope as his charity to support when he participates in the Tri-City ValleyCats baseball team contest to determine who becomes the next media bobblehead giveaway.

We can support Greg's efforts by voting for him during the month-long bracket buster tournament.  The ValleyCats have selected 16 prominent personalities of the Capital Region to participate.  Each participant has selected a charity that they will represent throughout the entire tournament. Fans will vote each week up until Monday, April 8, when the winner will be announced.

The winning media personality is supposed to be immortalized into their very own bobblehead doll, to be given away to the first 1,500 fans through the gates on Monday, August 19.  However, if Greg wins, Hannah will be immortalized as a bobblehead doll to help raise awareness for Hannah's Hope and GAN.  In addition, if Greg wins, Hannah's Hope will receive a $1,500 cash donation and also sponsorship of the giveaway night. The runner up's charity will receive a $1,000 donation and third place $500. Each charity will be recognized during the game.

The dates for the voting rounds are below. Please Vote Now to establish our "seed" for the Round of 16.  When that round finishes, and if Greg is in the Top 8, we advance to the next round until we win!
  • PRELIMINARY ROUND: Thursday, March 7, 10:00 a.m. - Sunday, March 10, 9:00 p.m.

Congratulations Heroes!

We have reached our $450,000 matching grant goal.  A special thank you to Doris Buffett's Sunshine Lady Foundation for her continued support and belief in HHF and our mission.  HHF and all the Families of GAN are eternally grateful to each and every Hero for Hope.

When determining an amount for the match last summer, we were keeping in mind that this was an ALL OR NOTHING match, so we wanted to keep the goal attainable.  We did not expect in our wildest dreams that our supporters world-wide would rally towards our campaign and get us there within just six months.

A dear friend of HHF who wishes to remain anonymous, just made a sizeable donation and challenged us to keep the momentum going.  With your generous efforts to reach the $450,000 goal, the Sunshine Lady Foundation grant and our friend's recent donation, we have raised over $900,000 in 6 months!  So we are accepting our friend's challenge to keep it going, and are shooting for the stars...Please help us to keep the momentum going through April 30, 2013.The cure for GAN is within reach, and your gifts are appreciated now, more than ever!

Contact kelly@hannahshopefund.org to let us know you are a HERO FOR HOPE and for more information on how you can help.
