THANKS TO ALL WHO SUPPORTED AND ATTENDED OUR FIRST FUNDRAISER AT CITI FIELD ON TUESDAY, JUNE 21st!!
The event was a great success with over 80 people in attendance! Guests enjoyed visiting with Mets players Tim Byrdak, Josh Thole, Bobby Parnell and coaches Dan Warthen and Jon Debus. Mookie Wilson strolled over to the fence to say hello and later joined Foundation representatives on the field for a presentation before the game. Oakland A's players Andrew Bailey, Craig Breslow and Brian Fuentes joined the fun and stopped in for autographs and photos before the game. Former New York Giants punter Sean Landeta, the legendary pitcher Tommy John and everyone's favorite, Mr. Met, all made time to visit with our guests at Modell's Clubhouse.

Our mission is to provide financial support for education to orphans and young adults from foster and out-of-home care environments who remain unadopted. As these students age out of the system, either voluntarily or involuntarily at age 18, federal and state governmental support drops precipitously. Our funding enables students who possess personal and academic promise to attend the school of their choosing by bridging the gap between tuition, room and board, and related costs and the financial aid provided by the educational institution, government programs, and other sources.
