After a couple of months of summer heat, we get back in touch with all you Dancing Chefs to report on the LELA cause for July 2011. A close friend asked us to support the Angelman Syndrome Foundation (www.angelman.org), which we gladly agreed to. We want to thank all the Dancing Chefs in Cozumel, Cabo and Mazatlan who helped us collect a total of $435USD!
Angelman Syndrome (AS) is a neuro-genetic disorder that occurs in 1 in 15,000 live births. AS is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy or autism. Characteristics of AS include; developmental delay, lack of speech, seizures, and walking and balance disorders. Individuals with Angelman Syndrome will require life-long care.
It fills our hearts with pride that all your bills and coins go to a wonderful cause. The Development Director of the Angelman Syndrome Foundation, Eloise Crabb sent us an email to especially thank you:
”This is just tremendous! Thank you so much for choosing us as your cause to support in July. How wonderful and we are most appreciative to you.
Again, thank you very much.”
The coming days we will open up LELA at our 3 locations, to see what she has collected for August’s cause: the Cabo Humane Society.
