Eleven years ago, our friend Todd Gannon passed away from a rare blood disease and esophageal cancer. Todd fought every day since he was diagnosed at the age of 12 to live his life his way. He was not expected to live past the age of 25, he made it to 36 keeping his pride and his sense of humor till the very end. The Tomorrows Children’s Fund was with him every step of the way. Todd was a great friend to many, and we miss him every day.
For the last 9 years Todd’s friends have been keeping his memory alive by doing a fundraiser for the Tomorrows Children’s Fund www.tcfkid.org called Todd’s Night Out. So far with your help, we have raised $171,000!!!!!
Todd was a major Rik Emmett and Triumph fan. Having Rik and Dave play this very emotional, special event means the world to Todd’s family and friends.
This year will be our last Todd’s Night Out. I hope Todd would be happy that we kept his memory alive and raised a lot of money for the Tomorrows Children’s Fund in his name….but I’m sure he’d be happy that we are ending it …he loved attention, but not for his illness. Each year has gotten better and better, we would rather end it on a high note rather than let it slip and fade away. Thank you so much for all of your support through the years.
