Fourth Annual Shop for Phia (Shopping for a Cause)
Darboy Club, N9695 County Road N, Appleton, WI 54915 Enjoy the fourth annual “Shop for Phia” event and peruse and buy from our many crafters and vendors. The event includes a silent auction and raffles. UW Organ and Tissue will be there to promote organ donation and registering as a donor on Wisconsin’s donor registry! Items will be collected for the Ronald McDonald House, 211 E Grand Ave, Chicago, IL 60611, that has been an amazing resource for the Skrede family.
This “shop for a cause” event was created four years ago to help with the huge medical bills the Skrede family acquired when their youngest daughter Sophia was born with Biliary Atresia, which caused liver failure. On December 30, 2013, Sophia received a liver transplant from a living donor at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.
The proceeds from this year’s event will benefit other families currently facing a similar journey. in addition to UW Organ and Tissue Donation’s “Donor Education Fund.”
