Thank you to Nate and Andrea Hugill, owners of M.O.M.’s (Maxwell’s on Main) in Doylestown, PA for once again opening their hearts and restaurant, and sharing their time and talent, to help families dealing with a pediatric cancer diagnosis. This year’s Beers for a Cure was another success and brings the total raised over the past 9 years to just shy of $60,000! Thank you to all of the breweries that donated and volunteered their time! Thank you OwowCow for joining us once again and donating their delicious ice cream! Thank you Minuteman Press in Doylestown for your advertising donation. The raffle was another huge hit this year! Thank you to everyone that donated! Monkeys Uncle, Mercury Tattoo, The Doylestown Bookshop, Finneys Pub, and many others for beer baskets, wine and gift cards! A special thank you to Stockertown Beverage for your very generous donation to the Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation.
From Andrea Hugill: “Each year the Foundation travels here and helps local families battling a pediatric cancer diagnosis. This year they were able to “lend a hand for hope” to THREE local families. We were honored to meet some of the families and have them share their journey with us. We are and will continue to keep them all in our thoughts and prayers….thank you so much to the Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation for doing such amazing work and helping so many families through such a difficult time.”
Thank you to our friends at Ferrell Gas and the community for supporting the Fill-A-Thon. Many propane tanks were exchanged and the donations help to “Lend a Hand for Hope” to others!!
Thank you A and A Maple for your continued support of the Foundation and “Lending a Hand for Hope” to those in need.
Congratulations on all the great performances. Thank you Griffin DellaPenna for your hard work to assist the Foundation!
Thank you to the NYS Corrections and Youth Services Association (Region 1) for supporting the Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation in our mission to Lend a Hand for Hope. At their symposium held at Genesee Community College on March 15, 2019, Julie Wolcott, First Deputy Superintendent at Attica Correctional Facility, presented the Foundation’s Treasurer, Joni Yaskulski, with a check for $2,000.
The Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation and Gilda’s Club of Rochester, along with assistance from Eli Fish Brewing Company of Batavia, teamed up for a joint fundraising event. “Hops for Hope” raised funds to assist those with cancer and their families with expenses. The day included musical entertainment, a cornhole competition, food and specialty beers. It was a fun atmosphere to enjoy on a mid-February afternoon.
The Napoleones gratefully accepted a gift of $1,000 from the Town of Batavia Fire Department at their annual awards banquet.
“It really started with the idea from the president, Scott Garlock, and his wife Lynn, just trying to do something different at this year’s banquet from what we’ve done previously. Instead of buying a small gift for everyone that attended, we decided we would take the money we normally spend and come up with a local charity to give that money to,” Fire Chief Dan Coffey said.
A HUGE Thank you to Pioneer Credit for raising funds to Lend A Hand for Hope. The team held various events in the months of September & October. The money raised will support the mission of the Foundation.
One June 10th, students at Refuse to Lose Martial Arts School in Batavia, NY had full permission to break something. In this case, it was boards during a "Summer Kick Off Party" where all proceeds benefited the Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation. Students at the school range in age from 3-60 years old and together they broke 350 boards and raised $3,000 for the foundation.
