honored to be the recipient

of the funds raised from the

13th Annual Stad's Crabfest.

In Loving Memory of

Lauren “ELLE” Richmond

One ELLE of a Foundation

The ELLE Foundation is the only wish granting organization whose primary mission is to grant wishes for children with a recurrence of cancer. Granting final second wishes requires an extraordinary financial commitment, but our Lauren's passion inspires us every day, and our dedication to giving these deserving children a chance to forget, to laugh and to find their 

inner spirit is unwavering.

We are proud to say that we are an all volunteer run 501(c)(3) foundation and 93% of every dollar raised goes directly to granting wishes. Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors we have granted over 46 wishes just in the past 9 years.
