A lovely “Frozen” festival fundraiser for a young burn victim named Charlotte is planned for Saturday, Aug. 3 from 1-6 p.m. at the Damariscotta Baptist Church; call 677-3061 for more information. At this stage, there is word that Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, and another princess are going to visit. The band Rusty Hinges and possibly a few surprise musicians will provide the music.
Money is being raised for Charlotte, who was burned from eyes to her knees at age 2. She has had 33 surgeries and currently is treated at the Shriners burn unit in Boston. The family hopes to raise enough funds to send Charlotte to the World Burn Conference in Anaheim, Calif., where she will qualify as part of the youth burn team for burn survivors to learn skills to deal with their burns, PTSD, anxiety, burn treatments, their peers, and bullying.
It was the suggestion of other burn survivors and her doctors that she attend this training.
The family has to raise funds for airfare, hotel, conference workshops, and boarding her pets.
Anyone interested in donating or attending is asked to please contact Carol at 677-3061.
