BERKELEY – Emiliana Rose O’Brien is remembered as a guardian angel who looked out for other kids who were having a hard time, and comforted them.
Stories of her generosity reached her family after she passed away in 2015 at just 13 years old. She had been fighting osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer.
Emiliana never gave up hope throughout the course of her illness. Therefore, her family started Emiliana’s Hope in her memory to bring awareness to childhood cancer and funding for research. Emiliana’s Hope is a 501(c)3 nonprofit run by volunteers “to honor her life and continue her visions and generosity toward others.”
This group has donated thousands to charity, such as the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The next fundraiser for this group is the Golf “Fore” A Cure Fundraiser.
The fundraiser will be on July 19 at Cedar Creek Golf Course, which can be found by following the entrance driveway to Veterans Park all the way to the back. The luncheon will be held at Yesterday’s Restaurant, 938 Atlantic City Boulevard (Route 9).
There are various prizes associated with the day, including Hole-In-One prizes, a silent auction, and a 50/50 raffle.
An individual golfer costs $100 before June 30, and $125 after. It includes golf, cart, breakfast and luncheon.
If you only want to be at the luncheon, that costs $50.
