Take a Closer Look at Chapel Hill House

GETDOT will assemble once again on July 20th to see old friends, meet new faces, watch baseball . . . and raise money for an important cause.

Chapel Hill House is the beneficiary for our next event. This is an organization providing quiet sanctuary for families grappling with childhood cancer. If you need reasons to dig a little deeper into your pockets and bid a little higher on items . . . read on.

“Our mission continues to be centric to making sure families who visit us get the weekend they deserve.  Considering their hectic schedules that are filled with doctor appointments and treatments, we want to make sure they can relax, enjoy the surroundings and really be able to connect or stay connected with one another,” said Jason Joseph, Chairman of the Chapel Hill House Board of Directors.

The trim margin between operating costs and income leads to every year becoming a new adventure, he said.

“We continue to be blessed with the outreach and assistance of friends and total strangers alike, who without, we wouldn’t exist and be able to provide for Central Ohio families,” Joseph said. “We do have some exiting things happening in terms of the addition of a (not just any) treehouse that we are excited to get off the ground!”

Monies collected at GETDOT’s July event will be spent wholly on Chapel Hill House’s operating costs. There’s no staff to pay. Everything is performed through volunteer labor. That means every red cent goes to comforting families in crisis.

Joseph expressed colossal gratitude to GETDOT and everyone who has made such a remarkable impact.

“We can’t say enough about the support that we’ve received from the GETDOT community over the years.  We were floored the first year that we found out that we were chosen as beneficiary non-profit and we are just as floored now that GETDOT has chosen us as being important enough of an organization to support,” he said.

“It really gives us the momentum and encouragement to keep driving towards making sure every family in the area that has the unfortunate situation of dealing with childhood cancer, the fortunate opportunity to heal with the power of family time at Chapel Hill House,” he continued.

Let’s help give suffering families a home run. We’ll see you at Huntington Park.
