Newcor had the pleasure of being the 'Drop the Beat' Sponsor at the 10th Annual HOPE Under the Stars.
The HOPE Under the Stars is a gala event that raises funds for research to save Will Herndon, a 15 year old boy battling Juvenile Batten Disease - a fatal brain disease.
On Saturday, October 20th, the community accompanied with 900+ guests rallied together to enjoy dinner, live & silent auctions, and entertainment.
This annual event is highlighted by a personal message from Will's parents, Missy Kemp Herndon & Wayne Herndon, where the evening encompasses a celebration of HOPE for a family that never takes NO for an answer. Since 2009, Will has been fighting a terminal illness, that doctors said had no treatment or cure.
Missy & Wayne, combined with the love and support of an entire community, including Newcor's continued generous support and commnity advocacy, have held dozens of fundraisers to continue to support ground-breaking research at the Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children's Hospital. These researchers have made a medical breakthrough in the treatment of Juvenile Batten Disease.
Year after year Newcor has the pleasure to promote the awareness of this awful disease and all it entails while fighting to Save Will.
