Birthday Dreams was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Laurie Lim. Laurie served as a founding member of the Board and was the Board Secretary from 2009-2011.
Of Laurie, Birthday Dreams co-founder Chris Spahn said, "Laurie was so passionate about our cause. In the early days, Laurie and her daughter Kierra regularly attended the onsite group birthday parties we held at Hope Place (the Union Gospel Mission's women and children's shelter).Laurie loved playing party games with the children, helping with craft projects and face-painting. Laurie's skills helped shape Birthday Dreams by creating our first marketing brochures and our application form, giving us a professional appearance. She helped set the stage for the growth that has skyrocketing over the years. Her impact will continue to be felt for years to come. Laurie was an amazing person with a giant heart and will be deeply missed by many."
