The Foundation would like to give a very special thanks to several individuals who have made significant contributions to the Foundation:

Martin Raffel
For his inspiration in coming up with the idea of establishing a Foundation in Jeanne's name at the time of her passing.  With only a simple note in the foyer of her home, the idea of a Foundation collected $7,500 in checks from among the many friends and family members who gathered in her home on those days.

Basil Kotsis
For his efforts in establishing the Monmouth Park Racetrack event as the Foundation's primary fundraiser and for his continued efforts in making it into a successful yearly event.  2017 will mark the 14th year for this event.  Basil has been a member of the Foundation's Board of Directors since its inception.

Wayne Christie
For volunteering his legal expertise in creating the Foundation as a non-profit corporation in the State of New Jersey and his help in establishing the Foundation as a tax exempt organization under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Kevan Lunney
For her efforts in establishing a relationship with MIPH (Making it Possible to End Homelessness), a transitional housing program for young mothers and their children.  As a result of this relationship, our Foundation has provided the residents of MIPH with recreational enrichment trips.  The residents of MIPH would not have the opportunity to experience these trips without our funding.

Leo Chan
For volunteering his professional accounting services in establishing the Foundation as a tax exempt organization under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and for his yearly filing of tax statements on behalf of the Foundation.

Kevin Gaertner
For volunteering his professional services in creating, maintaining and editing the Foundation's website.

To all past and current Board members
For their efforts in getting the Foundation to where it is today.
