On September 9th 2014 on a rainy Tuesday evening, at The Windermere Town Center, Mayor Gary Bruhn declared that September 13 2014 is The Gift of Life Day.
He read in front of the council the following:
Whereas: Premature births have been increasing progressively and alarmingly over the past two decades; and
Whereas: Even through doctors have made excellent advances in caring for babies born too small and too soon, there is a long way to go in order to prevent preterm births from happening, and
Whereas: 27 Miracles is an organization that is presenting “The Gift of Life”, a fundraising event inspired by Rosie Moore’s own story, who had a premature baby that was born 13 weeks early; and
Whereas: The event seeks to raise funds for equipment supporting Florida Hospital for Children’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit; and
Whereas: This special night celebrates the daily miracles of premature newborns and encourages our community to provide support to those families that are having premature babies, and
Whereas: Organizations such as 27 Miracles work closely with volunteers and partners to raise public awareness of the problems of prematurity and to decrease the rate of preterm births in our region;
Now, therefore, I, Gary Bruhn, Mayor of the Town of Windermere, do hereby proclaim September 13, 2014 as “The Gift of Life Day” in Windermere on behalf our Town Council, residents and staff.
Dated this 9th day of September, 2014
Gary Bruhn, Mayor
