Foundation Announces Donations for 2012 Fiscal Year

01 Nov 2012 7:16 AM | Anonymous

In addition to the annual Matt Davis Award, the board agreed to donate to other Richmond-area causes related to its mission of supporting organizations that “provide comfort and care to cancer patients and their families.” This year’s recipients include the Hospital Hospitality House, the From the Heart Stitchers, Full Circle Grief Center and the CJ Thumbs Up Foundation. The Hospital Hospitality House provides lodging at a reduced cost for family members of those receiving treatment at MCV. The “From the Heart Stitchers” knit chemo hats for local cancer centers among other worthwhile causes. The Full Circle Grief Center is a resource center that helps children and their family deal with grief. The CJ Thumbs Up Foundation was established in memory of CJ Reynolds, a 4-year old that passed away from after a battle with a brain tumor. Their foundation helps provide meals for the families of children who are undergoing treatment and to financially assist families whose child is facing life threatening illnesses.

The foundation is also proud to honor the memory of two long time supporters, Janet Ruehle and Andy Jennings, who lost their battles with cancer within the past year. Janet is Matt’s cousin who along with her family could always be counted on to lend a helping hand at all of our events through the years. A fund in her memory has been established through the New Kent Educational Foundation.

Andy was known as the “publican” at Rare Olde Times, a favorite of many of our supporters. Rare Olde Times has made countless contributions to our fundraisers through the years that have helped defray the costs of our events. A memorial fund was established in Andy’s name after his passing.
