We have great news to share! The Kelly Gang (a collection of socially conscious individuals–all with the last name Kelly, including such famous names as Ray, Megyn, Greg, Keith) have raised $65,000 for END SEPSIS, the Legacy of Rory Staunton. We were thrilled in March when the famous Gang selected us as the beneficiary of their 16th Annual Kelly Gang St. Patrick’s Day benefit. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the invitation-only spectacular in-person gala did not take place. However, The Kelly Gang continued to fundraise and this month presented us with $65,000 to advance our mission to end sepsis!
In “normal” times, The Kelly Gang’s in-person event is a spectacular gathering of New York City’s most influential players in media, publishing, and advertising, who come together to raise needed funds for worthwhile causes. Since its inception, The Kelly Gang has raised over $1 million for select charities.
We are sincerely grateful to The Kelly Gang for this donation which will enable us to continue our lifesaving work to end sepsis across the country. Sepsis killed our beautiful son Rory and kills over 270,000 Americans every year. Rory would be so proud of this effort!
