Stand With Maceo! Project Gala Fundraiser
Beverly Hills, CA
Share this event:


Next Model Management - with Erika Christensen, Joy Bryant, Kenny Clark, Zachary Scott, Todd Gallagher, and Danny Masterson is hosting an event on Thursday, October 17th, from 7 PM to 10 PM, with performances by Curt Smith (Tears for Fears), Nikka Costa, Tim Wheatley, Josiah Hawley, and Holly Palmer, Maceo's mother and founder of the Stand with Maceo! Project.

The mission of the Stand with Maceo! Project is to raise awareness of innovative treatments for children born with cerebral palsy and other movement disorders, through funding and documenting the journey of Maceo McKay, a four-year-old boy with CP.

"After two years of an innovative therapy, he was recently able to stand for the first time, something we thought Maceo might never do," says Maceo's father and Next Model, Joe McKay. "We are raising funds for Maceo to receive additional treatment from Ramón Cuevas, the creator of the therapy in Santiago, Chile. This will help him get further along the road to independent movement and a chance at a more active life."  This intensive program is designed to help Maceo attain a level of physical strength and coordination in just 2 weeks that may otherwise take years to achieve.  His parents and nurse will also do in-depth training to learn how to perform the therapy technique.

Next is proud to be a part of this project and we need your help.

HELP US TAKE THE NEXT STEP SO MACEO CAN TAKE HIS FIRST STEP!

Total costs for the therapy, travel and housing in Chile are $15,000.  Every dollar is a step in the right direction. No charitable contribution is too small. Any funds raised over this goal will go toward the Stand with Maceo! Project, a fiscally sponsored project which raises awareness of innovative treatments for children with cerebral palsy and other movement disorders.  Our next phase is a documentary film about Maceo's daily life and progress. We aim to educate and motivate caregivers of these special kids by sharing our journey.

Thanks so much for your support!
