FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
1st ANNUAL “MOLLY GRANTS A WISH” BENEFIT
EXPECTED TO UNITE HUNDREDS OF LOCAL RESIDENTS FOR A GREAT CAUSE
GASTONIA, NC – September 29, 2014 – Southern Belle Marketing, LLC, along with Carolina Speedway, Behind Enemy Lines Paintball, and Broad River Media announced today that they will be hosting the 1st Annual “Molly Grants a Wish” Fundraiser at Behind Enemy Lines Paintball, located at 100 Wolfpack Road, Gastonia, NC from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 18, 2014.
“Molly Grants a Wish” was founded in September 2014 after the tragic accidental death of Molly Elizabeth Justice, who was only 19-months old. Although Molly was so young, her life has impacted so many in such a short amount of time and with her parents making the decision no parent should have to make, they made the decision to give life to other children through Molly and donated her organs. Several children had their wishes granted after receiving their transplants and all of this is because of Molly, along with her loving parents Casey and Amber Justice. In an effort to continue to help others the Justice family, along with family and friends created the “Molly Grants a Wish” Foundation, in which their mission is to increase organ donation education and awareness, as well as help facilitate financial assistance each year to other families and parents who are awaiting organ donations for their children or have recently received a transplant.
Local businesses as well as the community have come together in support of the Justice family and provide financial assistance during this difficult time. “Casey is a local law enforcement officer, and Amber is a labor and delivery nurse. They both give so selflessly everyday through their occupations and we want to give back during this difficult time and show them how much support and love they have from everyone in the community,” said Jennifer Fredell-Saucier, owner of Southern Belle Marketing, LLC.
The staff of Behind Enemy Lines Paintball said they are honored to help the Justice family, and encourage everyone to take part in the fundraiser because it will truly be a day of giving, as well as all-day fun for the entire family. They will be donating ALL proceeds to Casey and Amber Justice.
The event will have all-day paintball games, activities for the kids, raffles, silent auction, shopping for the ladies, various vendors, food provided by Simply Southern Catering, music, and much more!!! “After the event, we are encouraging everyone to head over to the 2nd Annual “King of the Carolinas” at Carolina Speedway, where we will also be collecting donations to support “Molly Grants a Wish” and the Justice Family,” said Clint Elkins, of Carolinas Speedway.
With nearly 100 people already registered to attend the event, we are expecting hundreds to attend in an effort to help this wonderful family, who donated such an incredibly special gift, “The gift of life,” said Fredell-Saucier.
