Frequently Asked Questions
Why did you start a foundation?
I've always admired philanthropists and thought one day it would be nice to have my own foundation. I know it sounds odd, but many years ago I was impressed when I met a couple who were very young and had a family charitable foundation I think at that moment I decided I would have a charitable foundation myself that could make a difference in the community. By this point I had already been hosting charitable events and helping raise money for different organizations. Being a member of my local Rotary club also exposed me to a lot of charitable events. In Rotary we are taught service above self.
Where does your money go when you donate?
The longest running event I have is my Halloween party, 2015 marks my 19th annual Halloween party. This only became a benefit within the last few years, and each year we choose a family that has suffered a loss. Be it a parent or child, when we see a need we are there to help. The New Year's Eve event currently raises money for the benefit of the Plymouth 400 celebration. 2020 will mark the 400th year since the Mayflower arrived in Plymouth, and big plans are underway which require a lot of money. We are proud to be helping by not only raising money but by raising awareness for such an important date to commemorate.
Everyone involved with my events volunteers their time. I do not take a salary nor do I expect to be paid. Therefore other than the companies that we hire to perform a service for our event, we are able to donate the majority of the proceeds.
