The Fourth Annual Making More Miracles in Memory of Miranda Bauer fundraiser will be held on Saturday, April 29. The event, which will feature a trivia night, pasta dinner, silent auction and prizes, will be held at John Michael’s Banquet Hall in Thorold.
The event is a fundraiser in support of childhood cancer research at the Hospital for Sick Children, organized by the family of Miranda Bauer. Funds raised at the Fourth Annual Making More Miracles event will go directly to a research only account that they have set up in Miranda’s memory.
Daughter of Justice Studies professor John Bauer, Miranda died in March 2013 at the age of 17 from an aggressive form of cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma.
“Miranda was 17 years old with a brilliant future in front of her,” said Bauer. “Research is the only way to find an answer so other families do not experience the pain we have felt because of the loss of our girl.”
Bauer noted how his daughter had been very active in fundraising for cancer research. She took part in an advertising campaign run by Sick Kids called ‘Together We Will’ and was featured in an ad campaign around the GTA. She also appeared in the ‘You Got It’ commercial which aired in November of 2012 and again in November of 2013.
“Our girl ran her own fundraiser in 2012, the same night Nik Wallenda walked the Falls, and raised over $10,000 for research herself,” said Bauer. “Miranda also designed logos for t-shirts and travel mugs used for the ‘Sick Kids Rally For Kids With Cancer’ in September of 2012. We still sell them today. To date our fund stands at over $85,000.”
