Quite a Day at iPlay
It was an awesome event at Iplay today. I don’t yet have final #’s but 2 or 3 warrior’s families were still arriving at about 12:30 pm & it was packed at 9:45 am. . For sure it was more than 150 kids, probably about 250 total guests, and about 25 wonderful volunteers. 
The volunteers had a great time escorting the kids, and special thanks to the entire Chafart family , LORENA, ED, JACKIE, VIENNA, & KATERINA, , as well as Don Sutton, Nina Burden & Operation Cupcake, and our photographers, 
From the breakfast buffet, to the rides, to the games, and especially the LASER TAG, to the delicious cupcakes, we all had a blast !

There will be lots more photos, but see a few of the smiles on the kid’s faces in photos below, and attached. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO MADE TODAY FUN !!!!!!! ALL ENJOYED !!

Window Washer, iPlay America and 'be like Jake' EVENTS

 Dear All Frances Foundation Friends:

 

Next Sunday, March 24th  is our IPLAY AMERICA Food, Rides, & Games morning at NJ's best indoor boardwalk. Please make plans to join our warriors and their families for a delicious breakfast buffet, cupcakes galore, and lots of fun (CLICK here for Tickets).  Please share with your families and friends. LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOUR SMILE AT IPLAY ON NEXT SUNDAY !!  

 

Our outstanding “ be like jake” team ( honoring our Angel Jake the Tank’s legacy) is holding a fundraiser to benefit pediatric cancer research at CHOP. It is being held at Our House Restaurant in Farmingdale, NJ on Friday night, April 12th. See attached flyer to purchase tickets.  It would be great to see you there too!  J

 

The FF loves to put smiles on the faces of our children fighting cancer. Take a minute to enjoy the attached awesome video of the window washer making those beautiful smiles�� Just like in the video, your support helps us deliver these inspiring smiles.

 

As a proud Irishman I am  embarrassed to admit that I never knew the difference between 3 leaf ☘️ and the rarer4 leaf��clovers. Do you? The 3 leaves ☘️stand for HOPE, FAITH & LOVE. The 4th leaf stands for GOOD LUCK. �� May all of our warriors and you and your families have nothing but fields of 4 leaf covers in front of you. ��. Tomorrow everyone is IRISH. Happy St. Patrick's Day��

 

GOD BLESS YOU for all that you do for our FF pediatric cancer families.

Hugs, Bob

Sunday, March 24th: Frances Foundation iPlay America Event 2019

Good Morning,

 

In just 3 weeks, ON SUNDAY MORNING, MARCH 24TH,  the Frances Foundation will be hosting 1 of our most fun events of the year-----A DELICIOUS ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET BREAKFAST & THE BOARDWALK LIKE RIDES & GAMES at IPLAY AMERICA in Freehold.

 

I have a vivid memory of our pediatric cancer angel Logan Parker being dragged out of Iplay by his parents, crying and screaming, after a couple of hours of just pure fun, because he just didn’t want to leave. That showed us that kids of all ages just love this event---adults too !!


The Frances Foundation provides complimentary tickets to all of our pediatric cancer families; and for a $30 donation we welcome all of our supporters and friends to join us and EAT A HEARTY BREAKFAST ( eggs, french toast , bagels, cupcakes, & lots more) & enjoy the smiles and laughter. Maybe I will see you on the GO CARTS with your kids and grandkids !!!!!!

 

PLEASE PURCHASE TICKETS ON LINE ASAP BEFORE THE EVENT.

The positive , enthusiastic mission undertaken by Jake’s parents Mike & Janet, his sister Gianna, and his entire family—to do as much as possible to help kids and their families ; is a loud and strong testament to Angel Jake’s phenomenal spirit &  powers and everlasting presence in our hearts & souls.

Last FF Update of 2018

Good Afternoon. Yesterday the FF made a $5,000.00 donation to our sister charity Kick Cancer Overboard( KCO). Over the years KCO has sent numerous FF warriors and their families on fully comped week long cruises to Bermuda.

 

Attached are photos of Warrior Tony "Superman " S. and his family , and Angel Mikey R's family; as both of these families were surprised with gifted cruises at yesterday's KCO Rock-it concert event. Tony spent almost the entire 2018 calendar year at CHOP. The surprised cruise to the R. family was made possible by the donations and efforts from Angel Jake the Tank Honig's family. The KCO cruise to Bermuda has a special wonderful place in the Honig's hearts.

 

In 2018, the FF gave more smiles and financial assistance to our warriors and their families than any prior year, more than $320, 000.00 . Our 2018 gifts went to about 100 FF pediatric cancer families, as well as to numerous additional warriors and their siblings thru gifts to our sister charities. Since our inception, the FF has assisted hundreds of pediatric cancer families ( more than 450) with smiles and assistance totaling about $2.4 million. Every dollar gifted is meaningful & resulted from your commitment to our FF mission. I sincerely thank each and every one of you for all that you do for our pediatric cancer warriors and their families.

 

Wishing all a healthy, happy & beautiful 2019 !!!!!!!

 

Out of Control Hugs, Bob
