Weekends with the Miners
Most Saturday mornings, the Miner family travels to Dobbs Ferry to spend time with the boys at Rose Cottage. Parents Pam and Lee believe in giving back and teaching Charlie and Julie what it means to help others. So the Miner kids have grown up playing ball with the Rose boys,organizing events on campus, volunteering at CV’s Masquerade Gala, and much more.
The Miners love to spend their time with the boys playing outside, but also feel the boys need a bigger space to play indoors. Last year they advocated for renovating the basement to make it a playroom.
To raise money for that effort, daughter Julie ran her own fundraising event, and the dollars raised became the seed money for the project. Today, with generous donations from not only Pam and Lee, but other individuals and foundations, the entire cottage is being renovated – including adding a beautiful playroom.
Thank you Pam,Lee, Julie, and Charlie for caring so much about the kids.
