Welcome to My Personal Fundraising Page

On May 4, 2019, our foundation will be hosting the 2nd annual Derby Day Event to support the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation. My goal is to raise funds to help ensure Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is able to provide expert, compassionate care for sick children locally, regionally, and globally.

I’m fundraising for Children’s Hospital because of my son Michael.

ITS DERBY TIME!  Come out and enjoy a day of fun and entertainment while you watch the "Fastest Two Minutes In Sports" the Kentucky Derby.  On May 4, 2019 we will be hosting our 2nd annual Derby Day event.  We will be providing all our guests with live entertainment, great silent auction and raffle items, Mint Juleps, dinner, and live derby action throughout the day.  Dress the part as we will be rewarding one Lady and one Man with best hat and best dressed awards.  All to support a great cause in the name of our son Michael Francies Trella.

Michael was 15 years old when he passed on October 27, 2016.  He was a fun loving kid who always looked out for others.  Michael's passing led to the creation of the I Love You More - The Michael Trella Foudation which is a 501c nonprofit organization that strives to provide financial support to grieving families.  We recently became a 2019 Childrens Circle of Care donor and hope to continue to support families through the Childrens Hospital Foundation.  We also look to provide bereavement support to families that lose children, who unfortunately are not connected with the fine supportive care team from Childrens Hospital.  This is our mission and one that we feel is so important to every family that is dealing with the tragic and heartbreaking loss of a child.

Help us to reach our goal by donating on this page or if you would like to enjoy a fun afternoon simply go to trella27.givesmart.com and register for an evening of entertainment and good will. 

Thank you for considering to support I Love You More-The Michael Trella Foundation!

Mark and Sue Ellen Trella
