Barn Dance~SAM’S POSSE is proud to announce that we have partnered with our friends at Bernardo Winery for this year’s Barn Dance! This family friendly event will be on September
In 2012 SAM’S POSSE was formed as a team and participated in a fundraiser benefiting the Make A Wish Foundation. In just four years, The POSSE would raise $100,000.00 in support of Make A Wish, funding numerous wishes and fulfilling the dreams of children with life threatening illnesses.
Sam Burt was born on May 31st, in 1993. He was eight weeks premature, and soon after his birth he was diagnosed with a genetic condition so rare, there were only five documented cases worldwide. He was both intellectually and physically challenged, and in his lifetime Sam would endure more than thirty surgical procedures, and countless hospitalizations. Sam was the friend you would be lucky to have. Kind, compassionate and funny. He loved horseback riding, baseball, puppets, music and books. Sam was always up for an adventure and would embrace a trip to Legoland or the feed store with the same enthusiasm.
Sam and his parents did not let his diagnosis define who he was, or limit his activities. They embraced life together, and took every opportunity to educate the public on the importance of acceptance and inclusion, for people living with disabilities. Through SAM’S POSSE, Sam’s family continues to fiercely advocate for and support organizations with the same goal.
