Charles Cypert was born with severe Cleft Lip and Palate. Faced with the challenge of either going to a larger city for Charles’ surgeries or staying in Lubbock, parents Sarah and Wade Cypert decided to put their trust in UMC Health System. Charles has had ten surgeries at UMC and each experience with expert caregiver Dr. Joshua Demke as well as the phenomenal nursing and child life specialists solidified that they made the right choice.
Charles is an outstanding example of a child benefiting from the funds raised at the Bunco Brunch today benefiting UMC Children’s Hospital through Children’s Miracle Network. The inaugural event took place at Social House and included 2 rounds of Bunco as well as a Silent Auction.
Currently, the event has raised $44,000 and 100% of those funds will stay local to go toward the children in our area being treated at UMC Children’s Hospital.
Overall, the first year of the Bunco Brunch was a success and we want to thank everyone who made this possible!
