Cool NH Kid Who Was on Ellen is Hosting a Virtual Spaghetti Supper
Remember that spunky and awesome 10-year-old, Elliot Perry from Bedford, New Hampshire?
Just to refresh your memory, Elliot came into this word three months early. He weighed a little over a pound (that's about the size of a water bottle). The diagnosis did not look good for sweet baby Elliot.
The doctors said his chance of survival was only 18% and if he did survive, the chances of him being able to talk or walk were extremely low. Can you imagine how devastating that is to hear as a parent?
Thankfully Elliot is a resilient and amazing little human who prevailed against all odds. Not only is he a perfectly happy and healthy 10-year-old, he also started a project called the 121 club which helps raise money for the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. 121 is the number of days Elliot spent in the hospital which were the first 121 days of his life.
The whole Perry squad was featured on Ellen not too long ago!
The Perry family hosts an annual spaghetti dinner to thank the members of the 121 club and this year is no exception! Except, it will be virtual. If you have donated $121 or more to the 121 club your dinner is on the house!
Elliot's playground campaign has now raised $124k, bringing Elliot's total raised for CHaD well over $200k! Not too shabby for a 10-year-old!
If you wish to attend but don't want spaghetti they will provide you with a link one Elliot's website! For those who want dinner for the Zoom, feel free to pick up your spaghetti take-out from the Derryfield Restaurant at the Derry field in Manchester. ($20 per person)
There will be guest speakers and musical performances from Alli Beaudry, The Scott Spradling Band, and Jimmy Lehoux! Chio and I might even make an appearance! It's sure to be an awesome night. For more info check out the Facebook event here.
