For The Love of Julia

For The Love of Julia at St. Pete Opera Company

For the Love of Julia Fundraiser at The St. Petersburg Opera Company in Downtown St. Pete

Julia Cox is a three year old girl fighting a battle no child should ever have to fight. Earlier this year she was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma and has been treated at All Children’s Hospital here in St. Petersburg ever since.

Since her diagnosis, Julia has been through six rounds of chemotherapy, stem cell retrieval, surgery to remove a large tumor, surgery to remove a portion of her small intestines and currently she is on a combination of chemotherapy & antibody therapy

As one might imagine while navigating treatment for Julia and being responsible for the mounting medical costs as well as caring for her siblings, Colin & Madeline, Jason & Stephanie would benefit greatly from a little support from their community. Daily living expenses, vehicle expenses, bills and medical costs as well as time away from work can put a big strain on a family. It is our hope to lift this burden just a little.

Event to include:

*Uncle Gerry Concert with Music & Me!
*Live and Silent Auction
*Face Painting
*Crafts for Kids

Gerry Dignan, best known as Uncle Gerry to the hundres of thousands of children who enjoy his performances on the Music Together, LLC recordings, will offer a 45 minute concert backed by the Music & Me teachers. Gerry and his wife, Denise, joined us three years ago to help raise money for a Sarasota music student with neuroblastoma; beloved Teeja. His joyful musical presence and performance is very special indeed.

Please come sing with us and show your support for Julia and her family. Suggested donation at the door is $25 per family. If you’d like to make an additional donation you can donate online at GiveForward.com on the page For the Love of Julia.
