2013 is finally upon us. 2012 will always be a memorable year for The Barkann Family Healing Hearts Foundation, as it is the year that we started the Foundation, established our mission and saw our vision become a reality at our first two events; “Hearts For Heroes” and “Holiday Hearts.”
In 2013, we are looking to further our mission with the support of people such as yourself. Please know what a difference you are making in your community. In November, we were able to financially aid the families of three of the Philadelphia area’s fallen police heroes, Officer Brad Fox, Officer Brian Lorenzo, and Officer Moses Walker at our “Hearts For Heroes” event. Then, in December, your donations to the “Holiday Hearts” program allowed us to put smiles on the faces of the children and families of The Laurel House, The Police Athletic League and St. Christopher’s Hospital when we delivered toys to all of them to enjoy this holiday season.
2013 is already filled with excitement for the Foundation. On February 2nd, our newly formed Young Professionals Committee, a group of energized young professionals committed to volunteering their time, talents and energy to raise awareness and help generate corporate support by recruiting their colleagues and friends to help further the overall mission of the Foundation, will be hosting “Bowling For Hearts” at Lucky Strike Lanes in Philadelphia. Participants will create teams and solicit donations to compete for some amazing incentive prizes.
We are also looking forward to one of our biggest and most popular events, the Barkann & Friends Golf Classic, which will be held on Monday, June 24th at Bala Golf Club. Please check out our website at www.thebarkannfoundation.org for all upcoming events.
We hope you will join us in 2013 as we work to make a significant impact in the lives of those who are suffering throughout the Delaware Valley. Our mission can only be accomplished with the support of our community. We hope to continue our friendship with you as, together, we make a difference in 2013.
