On November 21st 2021, Alexandria Sarah-Rose was born before the sun even rose that morning. She arrived six weeks early and just one day after her mother’s birthday. After spending nearly two weeks in the NICU, she was welcomed home by her parents and her mother’s parents.
Alexandria’s mother, Nikki, was determined to raise her daughter to appreciate the good in life and not take anything for granted. Since their birthdays are together, she originally decided to find a volunteer project they could assist every year for their birthdays. After Patty Vesh, owner of Catered by Vesh, posted in their community Facebook group, Nikki came up with the idea of holding a fundraiser for Alexandria’s birthday and asked Patty for her support. Within a couple months the support and help for the fundraiser grew to a point where Nikki just knew she needed to turn Birthday Fundraiser into its own nonprofit and become a yearly event.
Alexandria can now help to inspire and encourage others to make a difference in their community by her yearly Birthday Fundraiser.
