DAWSON Colorado Springs partnered with the Ronald McDonald House of Southern Colorado, Morgan Adams Foundation of Denver, and Koscove Metal to bring Garman Sculptures’ The Family Bond Project to five local families. The Family Bond Project brings together critically ill patients with their families for five precious hours of smiles as they memorialize their love for each other by creating a custom mold of their hands bonded together forever as a beautiful piece of sculpted art. The Koscove’s donated funds for four sculptures to be made of four different families. The four families were identified by The Ronald McDonald House and the Morgan Adams Foundation.
Impact Ambassadors, Chelsea Cabanting and Drew Cruz, helped lead the DAWSON office in opening their doors as the perfect hosts for the day the molds would be made. For six hours, the DAWSON office was a sculptures’ studio with tarps on the floor and tables where the families could laugh and enjoy the unique, joy-filled experience. What a gift those moments were to those families that do not have very long to be together. DAWSON also provided delicious, healthy food for the day. KRDO ABC News Colorado Springs did a segment featuring the event.

The sculptures will be complete and presented to the families on August 25th. Mahalo Chelsea, Drew, and the entire DAWSON Colorado Springs office for being willing to open DAWSON doors and hearts to these families during such an emotionally stressful season in their life.
