If you are a baseball fan and are near the Reading, PA. area, we hope you join us on Friday, June 6, 2014 at 7:05 as we co-sponsor Chamber of Commerce night at the Reading Fightin Phils FirstEnergy Baseball Stadium.
The Sarah's Joy Fondation was started in memory of Sarah Joy Iraheta, who passed away from Breast cancer at age 32, after a 2 year battle on March 16, 2012.
Sarah left behind two young boys, then ages one and three, as well as her husband Eric.
Sarah had decided to live life to the fullest even while dealing with the various treatments for cancer. In the last year of her life she went parasailing, jet skiing, canoeing, to the beach, and to various vacation locations to make as many memories as she possibly could with her family.
The foundation mission statement is to help families dealing with a loved one with cancer to pay for bills not covered by other foundations, or to provide the family with a small getaway, if only for a little while.
Since the Sarah's Joy Foundation received its 503C status in September of 2012 we have awarded over 5 thousand dollars in grants. We have awarded such small requests as a lobster dinner for a man in hospice, to awarding $1,000.00 to an inner city football team to allow them to be able to afford championship jackets for all the kids. We have given away concert, sports and even tickets as well as dinner and gift certificates.
So if you would like to join us this Friday at FirstEnergy Stadium in Reading PA. Just email us at info@Sarahsjoyfoundation.org stating how many tickets you would like and you contact information, or you can call 978-408-1573 and leave a message with number of tickets, and your contact information. The only thing we ask is that you make sure that you please use the tickets and that they need to be picked up by no later than 6PM from our Sarah's Joy Foundation volunteer in front of the park who will have your tickets under your name. We cannot hold them any latter than that as we need to be in the park by 6PM to get ready for photographs and the pre events. We hope you can joins us for a fun event!
