Hello All –
We continue to be blessed. Grief can be hard but it also allows you to see love and kindness in the world we would have never seen before.
The tennis tournament in Oklahoma was a great success and there is a chance many larger things will come from it, please have positive vibes coming our way that the long term benefit will grow as much as we wish.
We were also able to donate some funds to some very awesome kids at Easton Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. These are kids that took time to care for Trey and also understand what giving back to the community is all about. They held a fund raiser over Halloween to raise money for Trey’s foundation. They are truly going to be future leaders and inspirations for many other kids and adults. The whole Easton family are amazing people.
Mindy and I are lucky to live in the community we do and have the friends we have. Thanks Wendy Ingraham for everything you do. We got a big check (Literally) at the Castle Pines City Council meeting tonight for Trey’s foundation from the Run Wild Event! Thank you Wendy, Skylar, Vern, Castle Pines and all our friends who roll out and support Mindy and I every day. See picture for just how big the check was!!!!
One thing Mins and I have learned over 2014 is not to be afraid to ask for help! Well, we need some help!!! As many of you know Trey loved to give his toys to friends and other kids! He was born with the power and understanding of giving! Our neighbors Kara and Scott Stegman hit us up and asked what could be done for the foundation to help teach their kiddo the power of giving – what better way than to have a toy drive! We are asking you to please join us and help Children’s Hospital. Feel free to just drop a new toy off or stop in for some cocoa and a cookie and hang out! For those that came this is same club house where we held the reception after Trey’s service. Hope to see you. The event is Weds December 17th, 6-8 PM. It is a the Daniels Gate Clue House located @ 6450 Daniel’s Gate Road, Castle Pines, CO 80108. You can see the brochure below.
We have another event planned on January 9th to raise money for the foundation. Please join us at Blanc Denver for an amazing night remembering Brandi and Jay’s Daughter Emerson and our son Trey. Proceeds will benefit Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep and the Trey McCleery Memorial Fund. NILMDTS provides free photography services and care packages for families grieving the loss of their baby. Trey’s foundation was setup in memory Trey (aka. Budders) McCleery. As we all know Budders was an happy and active kid… We are using this foundation to enrich the lives of children in the community so they can share in the experiences Budders had through his life. To help create happy and fun loving children. Please join us to drink, eat, and dance the night away, while raising money for two very important charities that our very close to our hearts! Tickets can now be purchased by visiting: http://mkt.com/emerson-riley-memorial-event. If you cannot come, please consider visiting the site to make a donation. Donations in honor of Trey can be made by visiting: http://playfortrey.org
Wishing everyone the best this holiday season!

Sending Love Your Way
