The Days Charity Event Board of Directors. Clockwise from top: Allen Cutter, Christine Downs, Sean Kemp, Stacey Ouellette and Erica Croce
Founder Stacey Ouellette is a life-long Days of our Lives fan and has a passion for event coordinating. Co-Founder Sean Kemp was diagnosed with diabetes over 30 years ago and has been heavily involved with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) for many years.
Stacey and Sean became good friends when they worked together for several years. One night in 2005, they were discussing Stacey’s upcoming trip to the Days of our Lives set and Sean’s JDRF walk. The conversation then went in a different direction when they decided that they could combine Stacey’s passion for Days and event coordinating with Sean’s desire to do whatever he could to increase awareness of JDRF and raise money for this worthy cause.
Christine Downs, a long time family friend and a Days fan, joined forces with Stacey and Sean and has helped from the very beginning.
The first event was held in October 2005 with a staff of three: Stacey, Sean and Christine; three Days of our Lives stars and approximately 50 fans. From this date, we have grown tremendously. We now host events with 6-8 stars at one time and up to 250 fans.
In 2008, we were contacted by Erica Croce, who works for a CBS / FOX affiliate and has been very involved in many different charities, fundraisers and event coordinating. Erica contacted Stacey and Sean to help out at one of their events and knew that, together, they could do great things.
So, in 2008, Days Charity Events, Inc was officially founded.
We all have families and full-time jobs, so we rely on a wonderful team of family and friends who generously volunteer their time to help plan and execute each event. We also depend on the Days actors to continue to support our efforts and, of course, on all of the amazing fans who attend the events.
Every event is made possible by the contribution of all those who help at every stage and we want to offer a sincere thank you to everyone who helps make each event a success!!
