TODAY ALL proceeds at Family Fun Cutz will benefit the Smith family!!!

I posted about the fundraising dinner and auction HOAA through UNMC is doing next Thursday to benefit the Smith family. I hope some of you are able to attend that. I am including that information at the end of this email again, but I wanted to also let you know about a benefit going on TODAY at Family Fun Cutz (144th & Center). Today the salon is donating ALL proceeds from the entire day for the salon to the Smith Family.

And Saturday there will be facepainting and fingernail painting done at Family Fun Cutz as well. The proceeds from that will also go to the Smith Family. Please read about all Family Fun Cutz is planning here on the Adam Smith Memorial website.

If you are in Omaha, please read the following letter and consider attending this event sponsoerd by HOAA (which is a group to support families of residents. I am in the presidency):

Re: Benefit Dinner for the Family of Dr. Adam Smith

August 18, 2010

Our Omaha Community,

Last week, the medical community lost a terrific doctor and wonderful man when fourth year Creighton radiology resident, Dr. Adam Smith, was struck by a drunk driver.

The House Officer’s Association Alliance (HOAA), which exists to provide support to the spouses and partners of residents and fellows at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, would like to do all that we can to help Adam’s wife Melissa and her three sons during this difficult time. We are asking the community to join us in this endeavor.

On Thursday, August 26, HOAA will be sponsoring a benefit dinner and silent auction with all proceeds going to the Adam Smith Memorial Fund. Dinner will be served anytime from 5 - 8 p.m., in the Lower Storz Pavillion on the ground floor of Clarkson hospital. Please make plans to join us if you can.

Tickets are available for a suggested donation of $15 each and can be reserved by
e-mailing us at Please put “tickets” in the subject line, and make sure to include your name and phone number in your message. Donations are also being accepted for the silent auction. Please contact Devon Toomey, our volunteer chair, at 402-932-8959 or for more information.

Thank you and we hope to see you there!

Stephanie Kumor, President
House Officers Association Alliance
