Fundraiser supports local teen, cancer research.
When The Lake Club’s Jared Hermann and his 13-year-old son, Weston, drove up to the The Lake Club Grande Clubhouse on Sept. 4, they were overwhelmed by the sea of more than 100 white posters stating the names of people and businesses that made a donation to support pediatric cancer research.
Then the cars began driving through for the event and to make donations.
In total, The Lake Club residents raised more than $51,000 for the V Foundation for Cancer research, a charitable organization that funds grants for cancer research and raises awareness for the cause.
Weston Hermann was diagnosed with a glioma brain tumor in 2014. In May, he found out his tumors had returned.
“The level of love and support our neighborhood has shown is remarkable,” Jared Hermann said.
