EVENT DATE: Jun 10, 2017
Hello our favorite people!
Like many of you, we feel so lucky to have the beautiful families, friends and lives that we do. We could not possibly need any more than the support and love you have shown us. In lieu of gifts, please consider donating to one of these four organizations using the blue donate link to the right. These causes are so special to us - read why below.
Please be sure to mention Claire and Brett's wedding in the tribute option so we can keep track of the donations. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
1. Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
As some of you know, Brett was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2003 at the age of 18. He has lived a very fulfilling life with diabetes while hoping for a cure eventually. JDRF has been at the forefront of the important research and technology that will lead to a cure one day, and we have been honored to participate in some of their events. Help make that day a reality for Brett and so many others, both young and old.

2. The Boys and Girls Club of Baltimore
We met in Baltimore in 2013 (RIP Camden Pub) and have fallen in love with this city and its people over the last 4 years. We are proud to call Baltimore home despite some of the injustices we witness here. BGC has always led the way to find a safe and encouraging place for youth to grow. Please help make an impact on those young lives in our beloved city.

3. The Church Health Center of Memphis, TN
Claire, and many in attendence at the wedding, have spent much of their lives in the Memphis, TN area. Much like Balitmore, it is a wonderful and special city that suffers greatly due to poverty and lack of health care. The Church Health Center provides medical, dental, mental and endless forms of other care to the uninsured and undocumented in Memphis. There are so many people that are healthier, happier and alive because of the CHC and its founder, Dr. Scott Morris. CHC's devotion to the health and service of others inspired Claire in medical school and continues to do so.
