Portland, Oregon – On October 15th the Rutledge Foundation and the Day family celebrated the Fourth Annual Sam Day Soiree, Waves of Hope. Friends and family showed their outpouring of love and support in Sam’s memory helping raise more than $155,000 in the fight against Ewing sarcoma.
The night concluded with the celebrated announcement of the formation of The Sam Day Foundation.
“We are touched by the Day family as they courageously begin a new chapter in their life and are excited about the good we can do together to eradicate Ewing’s and other orphan cancers,” said Carolyn Roberts, RF Development Director. “We surround our work environment with photos of Sam and other friends we have lost, reminding us that the battle is not yet won and we must continue to fight until there is a cure.”
