Thank you for taking your time to learn about our mission.

For those unfamiliar with Christian and the Trust established to help his family, Christian was born with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy, requiring constant care.  His paralysis makes a permanent tracheotomy necessary and confines him to a wheelchair equipped with a feeding tube.  Thanks to the money the Trust has raised over the past seven years (2003), thousands of hours of nursing care coverage has been provided. The result is an improved quality of life for Christian and his family, allowing Christian to lead as normal a life as possible.  This could not happen without the generousity of individuals.

Christian's Night Live is a unique evening that brings together friends and their families for a special purpose: to help improve, in the most direct way, the life of a special person.  Christian DeRiember has lived with the debilitations of muscular dystrophy since he was nine months old.  The Christian DeRiemer Trust was founded in 2003 as a means of providing supplemental income to cover Christian's required round-the-clock nursing care.  The funds raised at each CNL event go directly to ensure that Christian has the care he needs to stay healthy.

The committment of CNL's sponsors, underwriters and guests guarantees a successful fundraising program dedicated to continuing to provide the critical nursing care needed by Christian and his family.   Thanks to our continued partnership with Variety Club, which has been serving children since 1935 and has 501(c)3 non profit status, all donations made to the Christian DeRiemer trust are tax-deductible.  The Variety Club also allows us to accept matching gifts.  Please click here to read our sponsorship letter and consider supporting this event as a sponsor where you receive much deserved recognition on our invitation that reaches 2,000+ households.  (The deadline for invitation recognition is February 12)
