Congressional Recognition from US Representative Debbie Lesko
Time & Location
About the Event
Monica Yelin, the Community Liaison for US Representative Debbie Lesko presents TEAM 4 Travis Congressional Recognition for our efforts to raise awareness about Isolated Congenital Asplenia. In addition to raising awareness about this rare disease, we are working to raise funds for medical research and development of a Newborn Screening to identify ICA in babies before it becomes a fatal outcome. Board Members Christine Lizotte Marler, Allison D'Ambrosio Bones and Olivia Bien accepted the award. The Board Members of TEAM 4 Travis express sincere gratitude to Congresswoman Lesko and Ms. Yelin for this honor. We would like to give a special thank you to our friends at The Wigwam Resort. The Wigwam is the host site for TEAM 4 Travis's May 2021 Golf Tournament. Their staff are incredibly kind and huge supporters of our mission. At the last minute, Ms. Yelin advised there was a scheduling conflict with Congresswoman Lesko's Arizona office and asked us to arrange another place to meet. We reached out to our friend Marie Simpson, Wigwam's National Sales Director, to ask if we could sit in the lobby for our meeting (pandemic precautions). Ms. Simpson confirmed they were open and they would be happy to host us. Our sincere thanks to Ms. Simpson and her colleague Mike Riccio, Director of Catering and Convention Services for providing us a beautiful meeting room and gracious hospitality. We were so happy they could join in our meeting.
