Team Poppy will raise money to support end of life expenses for my father, Paul Sehnert, who passed away from prostate cancer June 5, 2011, surrounded by his family, at his home on Lake Hopatcong, NJ.
Paul Sehnert was an amazing father and grandfather. He worked so hard to take care of his family and gave his kids and grandkids so much love and affection. His smile and laugh were one-of-a-kind and infectious. Our family did everything we could to keep Poppy with us as long as we could. This involved sky high medical bills from Sloan Kettering Cancer Hospital. Having the last month with my Dad was the best gift I have ever received. My gift back to him and my Mom would be to help them pay off the insane medical bills that need to be paid.
HOW TO FUNDRAISE AND/OR DONATE TO TEAM POPPY
Typically, Crowdrise is a site used for online fundraising, however, Team Poppy's fundraising donations will be collected offline, through use of a PO Box. Checks/Cash can be mailed and I will add them to a Team Poppy bank account and manually enter the donations on this web page, so everyone can see how much we've collected as a team!
Checks are payable to: Jennifer Sehnert
I opened a separate "fundraising" e-billing bank account where all the donations will be deposited and I can keep track of our total amount raised and post updates to the team!
Donations should be mailed to:
Jennifer Winsor, PO Box 382, Newport, RI 02840
When I manually add offline donations to this web page, I can indicate that donations were raised by a particular team member if a note is attached with your name (i.e., $20 raised by Gordon Winsor).
*NOTE: The bank account is under Sehnert, but the PO Box is under Winsor. Sorry for the confusion!
