W E L C O M E
My Sister Mary is an all volunteer, non-profit organization which was established to honor the memory of Mary E. (Fallon) Gistis.
We started in 2012 and set a 5-year goal to raise $100,000 for cancer research or to benefit cancer treatment facilities. As of December 31, 2014, we have raised $55,000 for Stand Up 2 Cancer and The Gateway for Cancer Research. Charity event funds raised throughout the year are donated prior to year-end.
Our fundraising events include:
- Selling and exchanging jewelry and houseware products, and the net proceeds donated to the charity
- Raising funds by running in events such as road races
- Annual fundraiser events with gracious donations from local businesses, restaurants and New England-area hotels
- Fundraising at the North River Theater
- Selling Mary Gistis' photographs
- Children's books sales from "The Adventures of Sabrina" book series
There are a number of ways which you can contribute to the group's fundraising efforts. Please view our Events page for a list of upcoming planned activities. Of course, you don't need to attend an event to make a donation, though!
