RO Foundation presents check to dialysis department at Brooks Memorial Hospital

Special to the OBSERVER

On June 28 the RO Foundation held a fundraiser at Rookies on the Lake. This year, the “Shake on the Lake” Little Black Dress Dance Party attracted over 500 people.

Part of the event, sale of a specialty beverage in a keepsake glass, benefited the dialysis department at Brooks.

“We love to do special things for others in the local area, while keeping with our mission; assisting local patients and families with unexpected travel to treatment centers for long term treatments, in the form of gas, food and lodging”. Russo and Owen said.

The next big fundraiser will be the Patrick K Coughlin Walk/Fun Run and Missing Link’s Community Connection on Sept. 28, in Fredonia. Get a team together and walk/run for a great cause. For more information or to donate visit the RO Foundation’s website at
