|Support Rick's Raffle|
Ann and Doug Burgin established Rick's Raffle, an annual raffle to benefit the families of Children's Craniofacial Association in memory of their beloved grandson, Rick Dornier. Rick passed away due to Meningitis on Christmas Eve 2009, before his 4th birthday. The family honors Rick's memory while helping other CCA Kids and their families.
Since 'Thomas the Tank Engine' trains were Rick's favorites, the Burgins always select a Thomas-themed raffle prize for the contested. The prize is drawn on Rick's birthday, April 25.
Because they themselves have "been there" and remember the stress involved, it is the Burgin's and Rick's parents choice that funds raised from his memorial raffle be donated to CCA's Patient Financial Assistance fund, which helps families cover expenses when seeking quality medical care for the treatment of their child's craniofacial conditions.
This year, these Thomas toys will be raffled:
THOMAS WOODEN RAILWAY
Grow with Me Play Table

Wooden Railway "Happy Birthday"
