Oktoberfest Planned at Highland Meadows, Windsor, Co,

on Oct. 7th, 2023, Benefiting Angels Unaware and Camp Ray-Ray

This is their fourth year supporting Angels Unaware and here are the reasons why

It's heartwarming to hear about the Oktoberfest event and the efforts of Bill and Colleen Foos to bring their community together while supporting Angels Unaware and Camp Ray-Ray. The story of Angels Unaware is particularly touching, as it highlights the compassion and dedication of Harriet and Kathy, Bill's mother and sister, in the face of adversity. Harriet and Kathy cared for Clarice after her mother Emmy died from AIDS; Clarice who had AIDS died at six years of age.

Angels Unaware's evolution from a support group for families dealing with children living with HIV/AIDS to a full-fledged nonprofit organization run 100% by volunteers providing a free family Camp for HIV impacted children and their families speaks volumes about their commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of those affected by this condition. The organization's mission is to provide support and encouragement for children living with or affected by HIV and has done so for or over thirty-three years which is both noble and important, as it aims to create a safe and caring environment for these children and their families.

Colleen's involvement on the Board of Directors showcases her dedication to the cause as well. Her contribution to the organization involves strategic planning, decision-making, and helping guide the direction of Angels Unaware to achieve its goals.

The tragedy that befell Bill's sister Emmy and her daughter Clarice underscores the real challenges and struggles that families affected by HIV/AIDS can face. It's heart-wrenching to learn about their journey, but it's also inspiring to see how their experience led to the creation of an organization that now brings hope and support to other families in similar situations.

The Oktoberfest event planned by Bill at Highlands Meadows, not only serves as a means of community bonding but also as a platform to raise funds for these deserving causes. By combining a celebration with a charitable purpose, the event can create a positive and memorable experience for all attendees while contributing to the meaningful work of Angels Unaware and Camp Ray-Ray.
