The event will benefit the Tom Sustic Fund, established to support a bone marrow transplant. After his death in 2001, the funds were re-purposed as on-going support for families with children with life-altering conditions at UVM Medical Center and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. Dr. Alan Homans, Pediatric Oncologist at UVM Medical Center, and Dr. Fred Holmes, retired Pediatrician in Franklin County, will join others who will speak about the importance of the Fund to families with children receiving treatment and information about sponsoring organizations.
Presented by Young Tradition Vermont and Hotel Vermont and supported by the UVM Children’s Hospital, the Vermont Family Network, the Turrell Fund, The Alchemist, and Eden Cider.
