Detroit Free Press Interviews Laura Bonnell

In article titled “Mom’s calendar benefits this deadly disease her two daughters have,” Detroit Free Press writer Bill Laitner talks with Laura Bonnell about the new calendar “Closer Every Day.” Its 24 months show striking photos of 12 people with the lung disease cystic fibrosis, as well as 12 additional glossies of scientists from across the country, a batch of experts who — as in the title of the calendar — are bringing a cure or at least life-saving treatments… “Closer Every Day.”

2014 Celebrity Softball game

 

The rain held out as the 2nd Annual Bonnell Foundation celebrity softball took place at Victory Park in Canton.
It was so much fun and we can’t thank Team Media and Law Enforcement enough.  I have no idea what the final score was!  At one point Law Enforcement was winning, then the media came back strong and we were tied 5-5.  After that — everyone kept calling it  a tie game!  Honestly, I think we all won Saturday.  It was a day full of love, friendship, compassion, selflessness, spirit and simply some amazing people who helped raise over $7,000 for the Bonnell Foundation.  Each person on the team added something special: the largest amount raised, the most enthusiasm as a challenged player, help promoting this on the radio or TV, encouragement, donated mitts and a wonderful display of team spirit.  Ya can’t beat that.

Everyone said they’d play again next year!  SO…see you next year.

A huge thank you to Victory Park staff (Karen, Ann Marie and Drew) and to the Ump who donated his fee right back to the Foundation. Thank you Chuck Gossett. Thanks to State Farm Agent David Arce and Holiday Market for sponsoring the event.

Sincerely,

Laura Bonnell and the entire Board

Bonnell Foundation donations covered paper costs. Yaffe Communications designed the calendar again this year. We can’t thank them enough for their generous donation of time and talent. Printing costs were paid for by the personal donations of Mark and Lillian Schostak.
