In Honor of James F. Lee III
My name is Joseph Lee and with my family we are organizing our 2nd annual memorial basket raffle and 3® annual blood drive in association with Connect Life. In honor of my brother James Francis Lee III, he passed away June 28, 2021, due to complications with dialysis from diabetes and congestive heart failure at the age of 42. My brother James was an avid comic book and novel reader; he was also a movie aficionado and standup comedy fan. He enjoyed watching the Buffalo Bills, Sabres and wrestling. He also took pleasure in taking long drives listening to music and podcasts. He was an amazing person who found humor in everything he did. And mostly importantly he loved his nephews fiercely.
“Uncle” Jimmy played such an essential role in his nephew’s lives and that is why this year we have chosen the benefactor of the basket raffle and blood drive, will be the Boys & Girls Club of the Northtowns. James’s nephews both attend their after school program as well the summer camp. The boys have really enjoyed the activities and it gives them more opportunities to socialize and learn. The club has given us as parents a peace of mind, knowing that our children are safe and cared for while we work. We humbly ask to help support the Boys & Girls Club of the Northtowns.
Connect Life’s blood center is a vital component of WNY’s medical community, and your support will help to ensure that there is always blood available for patients in need.
