The Cristian Rivera Foundation was honored this week to receive a generous $10,000 donation in the name of Oscar-nominated actress Abigail Breslin, star of such well-known films as “Little Miss Sunshine,” “August: Osage County” and “Ender’s Game.” Breslin was the honorary chair of the 2014 Julien Dubuque International Film Festival, which makes a donation each year to the chair’s charity of choice. Having known DIPG Angel Brooke Elizabeth Healey, Breslin understands the horrors of DIPG and earmarked the donation for the Cristian Rivera Foundation so that they may continue their important fight for a cure. Breslin, who may become a Cristian Rivera Foundation Committee Member soon, was presented with the check for the Cristian Rivera Foundation when she attended the Dubuque, IA-based festival on April 24th. Cristian Rivera Foundation Committee Member Elis Pacheco, who works with Breslin, personally delivered the check to Cristian Rivera Foundation Founder John “Gungie” Rivera. The Cristian Rivera Foundation is honored to have been chosen for this year’s donation and would like to thank Abigail Breslin and everyone at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival for their support.
