Summit Fundraising Event for Tasha and Sawne

Support word cloud, heart concept

Summit Medicine and Pediatrics is proud to host a fun fundraising event to support Tasha and her son, Sawne, as they prepare to participate in both the USA Special Olympic Games in Seattle, WA in July 2018 and the World Games in Abu Dhabi in March 2019. Please join us and remember to share this event with your friends!

Tasha and Sawne are working very hard to raise the thousands of dollars necessary for travel, accommodation and meal expenses to participate in this extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is the Special Olympics. On Friday, June 15, 2018, we have closed our office to clinical care in order to invite our friends, neighbors, colleagues and patients to stop by starting at 9:00 AM to sample and purchase the most spectacular homemade baked goods, prepared with special attention and dedication by our baker-extraordinaire, Susann. We hope to raise as much as $3000 and ALL proceeds raised at this event will go directly to help offset expenses for Tasha and Sawne.

Please take a moment to watch this special feature video about Sawne published in April 2018: Tasha and Sawne Prepare for the Special Olympics

Among the baked goods at our fundraising event, you may expect to enjoy a wide variety of…

Cookies: Salted Caramel, Biscotti, S’mores, Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter
Bars: Lemon and Peanut Butter & Jelly
Loaves: Banana and Pumpkin
Cakes: Crepes, Red Velvet and Chocolate
Chocolate: Buckeyes, caramels and chocolate-covered pretzels

… and much, MUCH more! So please come early in the day to take advantage of the best selection of baked goods. We will stay open for fundraising until everything is gone!

Happy and Solemn Memorial Day

At Summit Medicine and Pediatrics this weekend, we join the multitude of grateful Americans to honor and remember all the men and women no longer with us who have sacrificed their own lives over the last 240+ years to protect and defend the freedoms and liberties we cherish in our great nation.

God Bless America. 


Amici Forever — Requiem For A Soldier

You never lived to see
What you gave to me
One shining dream of hope and love
Life and liberty
With a host of brave unknown soldiers
For your company, you will live forever
Here in our memory
In fields of sacrifice
Heroes paid the price
Young men who died for old men’s wars
Gone to paradise
We are all one great band of brothers
And one day you’ll see we can live together
When all the world is free
I wish you’d lived to see
All you gave to me
Your shining dream of hope and love
Life and liberty
We are all one great band of brothers
And one day you’ll see – we can live together
When all the world is free


To those who have served our great nation and have passed on, or who remember today with special honor a loved one who has done so, we honor you and humbly say ‘Thank You’.

Happy and Solemn Memorial Weekend.
