All Saints Raises Money For Leprechaun Foundation In Memory Of Local Girl

Sara Hudson, 8, passed away this summer after succumbing to T-cell lymphoma

Sara Hudson was a smiler, her father Scott Hudson said.

"She was a ball of energy, full of smiles," he said. "She was a friend to everyone."

When Sara and her family -- which also includes mother Kim and sister Kaley -- saw that her T-cell lymphoma wasn't getting better, the Leprechaun Society wanted to put one more smile on her face.

The 8-year-old girl made a wish -- she wanted to take a limo ride with as many of her friends as possible to Little Italy in Cleveland and enjoy a meal from Mama Santas -- and the Leprechaun Foundation made that wish happen.

Even though Sara succumbed to the cancer this summer, her family still remembers how happy that granted wish made her.

"They did it all with a day-and-a-half notice," said Scott Hudson, who is also a teacher at .

Now others want to help the Leprechaun Foundation grant other terminally and chronically ill children's wishes.

To that end, All Saints of St. John Vianney School is holding a dress down day on Sept. 21.

Students can pay to dress down in regular clothing, instead of wearing their school uniforms. The proceeds will go to the Leprechaun Society in memory of Sara.

Anyone else who wants to donate to the Leprechaun Society in memory of Sara can do so online.
