Ron Ernenwein, President & CEO of AA Transportation, presents Danielle Perron, Why Me Event Manager, with a check for $660Wednesday, October 6th, 2010
On Sunday October 3, Thirty One AA Transportation employees and their guests traveled to Foxwoods as part of a fundraising effort to benefit Why Me & Sherry’s House. The trip raised $660 which was donated to Why Me & Sherry’s House in the name of the late Mary Howe. Mary was a driver in Grafton for AA Transportation until she passed away from cancer in 2009. Both Marcia and Cindy drove with Mary in Grafton and were part of the fundraising trip. Plans are underway for another trip to Foxwoods on November 14th. Proceeds from that trip will be donated to Massachusetts Special Olympics.

The Why Me organization was conceived and created by 13-year-old Sherry Shepherd during her four year battle with cancer. She was the very first patient at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center when they first opened their pediatric oncology department. Sherry found many wonderful ways to lift the spirits of her fellow cancer patients as a means to ease their suffering. During her struggle with cancer, she became an inspiration to all who knew her, especially the other children being treated for cancer that she met. In the last months of her life, Sherry became determined to do something that would have a lasting value in the community to help children with cancer. With the help of her dad, she founded the non-profit organization WHY ME, which stands for Worcester Help for Youth, Memories Everlasting.
