Thrive Mortgage hosted a gala Friday evening to benefit Maxwell and the night was absolutely incredible. Guests arrived to a #MilestonesForMaxwell red carpet before heading into the beautiful event.
The event was so much fun with so many games! The silent auction featured artwork from Lindsay Jane Ternes Fine Art and unique sports memorabilia. The live auction surprised everyone with irresistible trips to Africa, a year supply of gourmet steaks, a fly-fishing trip and golfing excursions. In total, 6 trips to Africa were sold!
The Colorado Avalanche players were SO supportive of Maxwell! Here is J.T. Compher, Ryan Graves & Tyson Jost holding Maxwell’s sign. Ryan Graves (white shirt) is just shy of 7 feet tall.
One of Maxwell’s biggest supports has been Leah Block from the Bachelor. Leah has been a constant source of support and fun ideas.
Laura Leavy from Thrive Mortgage made all of this happen. Laura selected us to be the recipient of her beautiful event based off of our GoFundMe. She did this all for a stranger…someone she had never met. Laura truly is one of Maxwell’s guardian angels.
The final numbers are still coming in but I will update GoFundMe with the final proceeds amount! Thank you to all of our friends & family that came to support Maxwell.
