To celebrate what would have been Julia Grace Eveland’s
ninth birthday, the Julia’s Grace Foundation will hold a Julia’s-Palooza on
Nov. 16 at the Friendship Fire Co. in Royersford.
“From donating all of her birthday gifts to the oncology clinic, to asking that a school fundraiser for her be directed to help doctors find a cure for childhood cancer, Julia always put others first,” according to a press release from the foundation.
Julia died in September after battling Wilm’s Tumor, a form of childhood kidney cancer, and a day of family fun is planned to honor her memory, and to raise money for her foundation.
A family fun event will run from noon to 3 p.m. with lots of fun-filled kids’ activities and a serving of Julia’s favorite, waffles and ice cream.
A beef and beer will begin at 7 p.m., at a cost of $25 per person. All evening tickets include entrance to the family fun portion of the event.
All proceeds will go to Julia’s Grace Foundation, which was created to “honor Julia’s dreams and wishes.”
“The foundation’s purpose is to raise money to be used to fund childhood cancer research projects, raise awareness of childhood cancer and, most importantly, offer support to children undergoing cancer treatment, and their families,” according to the press release.
