ON SEPTEMBER 30, 2017, BABA’S BUNCH FOUNDATION, INC. WILL HOLD ITS FIRST SIGNATURE FUNDRAISING EVENT, DANCE FOR BABA; AN ENTERTAINING NIGHT WITH MUSIC, DANCING, FOOD AND MANY OTHER SURPRISES. OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE MONEY SO WE COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO CAREGIVERS IN NEED CARING FOR A DEPENDENT ADULT WITH ALZHEIMER’S.

WHERE: The Fireman’s Union Hall at:
8000 NW 21st Street,Doral, Florida 33122Taking care of someone 24/7 diseased with Alzheimer’s is a horrific experience. This is a well-known fact to the members of Baba’s Bunch Foundation, Inc. and the reason why they joined efforts four years ago to assist other caregivers to cope with this shocking event.
It is with great pride that we can report that during its first four years, Baba’s Bunch Foundation, Inc. has assisted over 400 families in a variety of ways.
Many families are provided 8 hours of respite support each week for 52 weeks, others obtain personalized advice when attending any one of the ten support groups for caregivers held each month, and yet others receive support and companion assistance provided through the Miami-Dade County Community Action and Human Services Department.
To continue growing this valued assistance to additional families, we need your generous support, so I would compassionately ask you to consider the Sponsorship Packages and Advertising Opportunities attached hereto and choose the one within your best possibilities.
Please note that Baba’s Bunch Foundation, Inc. is exempted from Federal Income Tax under Section 501 C (3); therefore your contribution would be tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
We understand there are many other good and deserving choices where to direct your philanthropy but rest assured that all contributions received will flow-thru directly to assist families in need.
All members of the Foundation are volunteers who are sharing his/her time, talents and experiences without any type of compensation.
Thanks for your serious consideration and we look forward to your generous support.

With much appreciation,

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF BABA’S BUNCH FOUNDATION, INC.
