Paradise Lawns is proud to support the Lane Thomas Foundation

After losing their precious two-year-old son Lane Thomas Graves in June 2016, Matt and Melissa Graves created the Lane Thomas Foundation as a way to honor Lane and support other families just as they were supported in their time of need.

Lane Thomas FoundationTheir mission

The Lane Thomas Foundation is dedicated to providing financial support for non-medical expenses to families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants at Omaha healthcare facilities.

Through monetary and emotional support, the Lane Thomas Foundation is able to be “A Beacon of Hope, A Light of Love,” and the lighthouse was chosen as the mark of the foundation to exemplify this purpose. Visit the Omaha Community Foundation for more information and search for the “Lane Thomas Foundation” to donate.

Lane’s Light Event

The 1st Annual Lane’s Light Event will be held on November 11 and 12, 2016 at the Hilton Omaha (1001 Case St), and will serve to launch the Lane Thomas Foundation’s mission. On November 11, there will be a private dinner followed by silent and live auctions. During this time,  corporate-sponsored Christmas trees will be on display and for sale. Direct donations can also be made online. On the 12th, the public is invited to a showing of the sponsored trees and wreaths. Families will have the opportunity to take a photo with Santa Claus at this time. Lighthouse ornaments will also be distributed, and a free-will offering will be available.

Paradise Lawns supports our community

As a father myself, I see the Lane Thomas Foundation as a great cause, one that I am happy to support. Paradise Lawns has donated a lighting package to this event. Please visit the Hilton on November 12 and join us in encouraging this foundation’s success.
