Tim Bainey Jr. and Nikki Grace Make Appearance at “Pennies for Patients” Cancer Event


Tim Bainey Jr. and Aaron’s “Dream Girl” Nikki Grace made an appearance at the North Lincoln Hill Elementary School in Central Pennsylvania on behalf of the Navasky Foundation for Life this past week as part of the “Pennies for Patients” cancer fundraising program.


“We really love to do these kinds of events,” said Tim Jr. “It’s a great cause and it’s a great opportunity to communicate with the kids. We always like to have fun with them, but today we were able to help them understand just how much what they are doing is appreciated by other kids their age who are suffering from some bad times as they fight cancer.”


“It’s always great to be out with so many kids,” said Nikki Grace. “They get a little excited when we do these in-school assemblies. Timmy likes to have fun, and the kids end up getting a little loud and crazy - but these kids deserve to have a little fun as a reward for taking part in such a great program.”


Through the program elementary school children save their “pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters… and bring them into school as part of a drive to raise funds to assist children suffering from the terrible disease.


They were joined by Navasky Foundation co-founders Chuck & Jaye Navasky, along with foundation board member Jim Pollock to announce a pledge that will double the total amount raised through this effort.


Tim and Nikki spent time talking with the kids, first thanking them for being a part of such a great program, and then just having a little fun as they walked through the crowd and took questions. At the end every kid received an autograph card from the pair.
