Meet Eddie Emeric. Eddie loves working with the team for this special cause. He also raises funds throughout the year for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
Although we on the fundraising team wear many hats, Eddie is primarily responsible for all the social media. (Yep, I’m writing my own bio…😂😂😂), Everyone say HI to Eddie!
Cristina spent her childhood as a military brat which provided her the opportunity to see the world differently. She not only spent the last 23 years in the healthcare profession but also spent several years as a recreational cheerleading coach. Coaching made her realize the importance of giving back to our community and how one minute of a person’s time can impact the lives of others. Her biggest blessing in life is being a Mom to two unique individuals. This year Cristina proudly became a grandmother for the first time.
Everyone say HI to Cristina!
