BIG NEWS! This video was selected as a national finalist for the Lights. Camera. Help. Film Festival in Austin, Texas. It's the premier national film festival for nonprofits.

We like to say that it's never too late to start Growing Bolder. Two timid third-graders, motivated by a great loss, have proven it's also never too early. Filled with grief but driven by a desire to honor her mother, Victoria Petrucelly and her best friend Jesse Theobald turned a lemonade stand into a life lesson for us all.

    My daughter is a friend and a classmate of Victoria's at The Christ School and we were blessed to be a part of the lemonade stand.  The only way to describe the weekend was "heart warming".  You did a great job with this video.  It was a wonderful way to tell the touching story of why this lemonade stand happened.  We are so proud of Victoria and her friend Jesse!

    What a wonderful tribute to a wonderful women. Angela counted her blessings when she was here with us and she is still counting them now. The out pouring of love and support that angela and her family received when she was fighting cancer (and still receive now) was something that I have never seen before, it was overwhelming. A testament to the level of goodness and caring of a community, an amazing school (The Christ School), to friends and to family...
    "Karma, what comes around goes around, you reap what you sow". Call it what you will, Angela had and has so many blessings because she was a blessing to those of us who had the good fortune to meet her along our journey. 

    Angela was surrounded by love when she died because she surrounded people with love when she lived.

    What a pleasure it was to meet Victoria, Jesse, Reid (dad) and little brother Vincent.  This family and their amazing group of friends have touched my heart.  This video is an amazing tribute.  Thanks to everyone!

    I was so proud to see this video of Victoria, and her friend Jessie! It was inspiring to see what a difference two little girls can make with the simple gesture of selling lemonade in their local neighborhood, to support local efforts to defeat breast cancer.  But what was more inspirational, was to see the level of support and love they received from this community, at a time when many are struggling to keep their jobs and support their own families. As a volunteer with Women Playing For T.I.M.E., my heartfelt thanks to both Victoria and Jessie, for their help and support of MD Anderson/Cancer Center.  I would also like to thank all the good people of our community who showed up to show their love and support for Victoria's family and the Think Pink Lemonade Stand.
    Kind Regards,

    Mary Mahoney, Volunteer, Women Playing For T.I.M.E

    Once again, Marc and his Growing Bolder crew capture the essence of what we are all about and fighting to find a cure for in a video.  Women Playing For T.I.M.E. applauds these little girls in their ability to pull a community together and raise awareness about breast cancer.  Our hope is to be able to stop breast cancer so that the future generation of women will not have to go through what Victoria's mother did.  Thank you Growing Bolder for your beautiful stories.  We'll see you at our next event!
