Dear KBF Friends,
The Kendall Burrows Foundation hosted its fourth annual “Footloose, Because She Just Wanted to Dance” gala last October in memory of my sister Kendall Burrows. Thanks to such great support from the community, the Kendall Burrows Foundation’s October 2017 gala was one for the record books! Raising $60,000 for the Palliative Care program at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, we doubled last year’s gift. This is truly humbling. To date, we have donated $135,000 towards the Palliative Care Program.
The Palliative Care Program optimizes the quality of life for patients living with serious, life-threatening, or life-limiting diseases. It also helps the families of these children cope with their immediate situation, even when it results in the death of a child. This program was not in effect when we lost Kendall, and by funding this program now, we can ensure others will get the comprehensive care they need. Palliative Care will continue to be the primary focus of the Kendall Burrows Foundation along with our two annual blood drives and we are committed to donating the proceeds of the 5th annual Footloose Gala to the Palliative Care Program at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
The 5th Annual Footloose Gala will be held on Friday, October 19, 2018 and once again we are in need of community support to hit our new goal and continue increasing our donation amount towards the Palliative Care Program. In order reach our goal we will be raising money through sponsorships, live auction items, silent auction items and ticket sales. This year’s sponsorship levels are listed below. Live auction and silent auction donors can be in many different forms, including but not limited to, airfare, trips, products, artwork, sports memorabilia, business certificates, or personal services for our guests etc.
