Yoga for Maggie

IMG_6902.jpg

Maggie LOVED yoga. She would spend hours stretching her body to learn various yoga moves. The day after Maggie's Mission Angelversary Gala on June 1, 2018, we honored  Maggie's spirit and love of stretching her body by hosting Yoga for Maggie on the Great Lawn of The Montauk Yacht Club. We collected donations to participate in the class and released painted lady butterflies in honor of Maggie immediately following.

Eugene Feis from yogawithgene.com generously donated his time to teach this class. Gene is a Dharma Yoga® Center, NYC, certified teacher and has been practicing yoga for over 25 years. Some of us even tried Acroyoga, a partner based practice that combines yoga and acrobatics. Maggie would often practice this with friends and family.

Maggie's Mission Angelversary Gala

Maggie's Mission Inaugural Angelversary Gala! 

THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR THEIR AMAZING SUPPORT!

Maggie's Mission Angelversary Gala benefiting Maggie's Mission was held on June 1, 2018, on a day to the year Maggie Schmidt lost her battle to Malignant Rhabdoid Tumors. Together, with the help of family, friends and many local businesses, we raised over $130,000! This will help Maggie's Mission finish funding their first research project on MRT at Memorial Sloan Kettering.

Everyone came together despite a little rain and enjoyed a wonderful, magical evening under the big tent on the great lawn of Gurney's Montauk Yacht Club honoring Maggie Schmidt, while fundraising to find cures for rare pediatric cancers and helping local families with expenses after the diagnosis of pediatric cancers.

The event was filled with a sea of people in white, which signified the "Angel"versary theme, while also remembering Maggie, who five years prior had worn white as a bridesmaid in her Uncle and Aunt's wedding party on June 1, 2013 at the same venue.

Thanks to everyone who supported us! Event photos can be found at Christopher Appoldt, password is maggie, all lower case.

Music for Maggie

On what would have been Maggie's 18th birthday, a "Music for Maggie" fundraiser was held at Harborfields Central School District, the biggest fundraiser the High School has ever had. The event raised just over $12,000. From it, two $2,000 scholarships were awarded to graduating musical students to help towards college expenses. Maggie would have been a graduating senior this June, 2018. 

HFamily is committed to helping Maggie's Mission, a non profit started in Maggie's memory and dedicated to raising awareness and funding research to find cures for rare pediatric cancers.

Ms. McGinty, Mrs. Garside and Mr. Taylor from Harborfields School District helped students run this event. Maggie's close friend Kayla Sarcona also helped. Andrew Schild donated his sound and DJ services for the evening.
