Maggie’s at the Lakewood Country Club
145 Country Club Drive – Lakewood, NJ 08701
Please join us for a fundraiser to benefit Nick Zichella of Howell. Nick was diagnosed at the age of 4 with a disease called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, one of the rarest types, which is prominent in boys. He was able to walk until the age of 9; he is now 19 and has been wheel chair bound for 10 years. He is dependent on everyone around him, as he has no mobility in any of his limbs, something most people take for granted.
As years go by his muscles deteriorate more and more and the disease will eventually work its way to his heart. Nick recently underwent a 19-hour surgery to make his spine straight. He was in the hospital for 4 months, but is finally home. This fundraiser is to raise money to help with Nick’s medical expenses as well as provide for a new hospital bed for him. He is currently sleeping in a recliner, the only place that he is somewhat comfortable.
Please join us July 23rd for music, a vendor fair, gift auction, 50/50 and more!
