CAN Spotlight: Payslie’s Pals

Mark Twain once quoted, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” This quote came to life last weekend in Fall River, WI.

This small town with a population of only 1,700 showed up big for Payslie, who lives with Angelman syndrome, and her family, at the 2nd Annual Payslie’s Pals cornhole tournament.

“It is truly inspiring to witness my community coming together to support our event. Their support allows us to continue raising funds to find a cure for AS and help those living with it. They are the backbone of our event and we are grateful for their generosity.” - Jena, mother of Payslie.

Through a cornhole tournament, a variety of activities such as a bake sale, gift basket raffle, silent auction, 50/50 raffle, selling bracelets, etc, the event raised over $14,000!

Thank you for fighting with us as we fight for Payslie and all of the other individuals who live with Angelman syndrome.
