Meet Hank Gibbs. A typical elevenyear old from the Sacramento area; He likes to play sports, get good grades, play drums, and visit his favorite amusement park, Funderland. What you may not know about Hank is that he is diagnosed with an incredibly rare and incurable auto immune disease, Parry Romberg Syndrome that will cause half of his face to “waste” away. While there currently is not a cure for this disease there are medical procedures available to help slow the process. Unfortunately these procedures can be quite costly, and burdensome for the Gibbs family. So the “Hope for Hank” fundraiser was established to help the Gibbs family cover the increasing medical costs that they incur due to trying to undo the damage that Parry Romberg Syndrome has caused Hank.
Hope for Hank will take place on Friday, May 10, 2013 at Funderland Amusement Park and will be open to the public. Unlimited riding will be offered for only $5 per person from 5pm until 8pm, and all proceeds will be given to Hank for his upcoming surgery. In addition there will be a silent auction, carnival games, face painting and more during the event.
Again, 100% of all ticket, auction, and face painting sales raised during this event will go toward the Helping Hands for Hank trust fund that will provide Hank Gibbs the opportunity to receive care to treat his rare and progressive auto immune disease. So come visit Funderland on May 10th to have a great time, and help Hank in his battle with Parry Romberg Syndrome.
