Event: Avril Lavigne’s Birthday Parties
Event Dates: September 2015, 2016, 2017
Amount Raised: $150,000
Avril Lavigne and The Avril Lavigne Foundation have partnered with LymeLight Foundation for the past three years in celebration of Avril’s birthday. Every year Avril asks her fans to give back to others in need. LymeLight’s mission is a cause that’s very important to Avril. She values helping children with Lyme disease get the care they need. Most insurance companies do not cover the treatment of chronic Lyme disease. Families are often left on their own to battle the disease often incurring enormous medical debt or leaving their children untreated. Children receiving a LymeLight grant would not otherwise be able to afford treatment. Avril says her birthday wish is, with the support of her fans, to bring hope and healing to these families.
