Why is our event named Audrey's Jingle in July one might ask. Well here is a snippet of her story:
Audrey was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma when she was 11 months old. After a strong two year battle with the disease, she went into remission and has remained there for over 10 years now! At our first event, Audrey was asked by Children’s Hospital to stop by the event and check it out. It turned out that she was leaving for the camp we supported at the time the very next day. It was also her first year to attend the camp and she was very excited. Audrey’s smile made all of us who met her, truly realize what a difference we make with our Charity Open Houses. Audrey’s mother told us that the charity we were supporting would be helping over 50 sick children attend camp for a week. After touring the vintage trailers and meeting Santa and Mrs. Claus Audrey left the campground but she left with us a desire to strive to help others as well as the most genuine smile one has ever seen! Audrey now has a vintage Shasta in her possession that she named Jingle and joins us at our Jingle rally each year. She has also become quite the celebrity as she has met and sang with Dolly, got a shout out from Marie Osmond, does local commercials, is an Ambassador for East Tennessee Children's Hospital and 2019 National Champion for The Children's Miracle Network!
