Haass and Carberry families receive Gift of Hope

Robert Capella and Pastor Randall Wehmeyer present Doug Haass and Doug Carberry with checks from the proceeds of the Gift of Hope fundraiser.

Robert Cappella and Pastor Randall Wehmeyer presented Doug Haass and Doug Carberry with a check last Thursday, “Gift of Hope” collected $10,000 during this event. Joyce Haass and Claudia Carberry were the two beneficiaries for this year’s event. Sadly, Joyce Haass passed away two weeks before the event took place. She was one of the founders of the annual “The Old Iron Trail Ride”, which benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This year the trail ride was held in her memory.
Claudia Carberry had suffered from a stroke and still remains paralyzed in a nursing home. Claudia was very active in her church. She played the organ every Sunday morning and sang in the choir. She also held a position on the church council.
We are going to have one more fundraiser to end our 4th Annual G.O.H. This event will still honor our two beneficiaries, Claudia and the Haass family. G.O.H. will have a golf tournament, Saturday, June the 9th at the Hondo Golf Course. We are in need of hole sponsors at this time. Golfers will have lunch provided to them after the tournament.
Thanks goes out to all that have helped during this journey. We all have to remember life is truly a gift.
The Southwest Blood and Tissue Bank was able to collect 43 pints of blood. One pint of blood saves three lives. It is amazing what can happen when we all work together for the good of the Lord.
A gift of hope continues to be a ray of sunshine after a day’s gloom, in memory of Joyce Haass and Jessie Esch. For information contact Robert Cappella at 210-771-7484 or Marla Cappella at 210-363-2718.
