There are three primary issues the Foundation provides funding to address at this time: wounded warriors, training and provision of assistance dogs, and global education initiatives for youth.
To maximize the impact the Foundation can make on these issues, three organizations who serve those issues have been chosen to benefit from the first Celebrity Family Weekend.
The first organization is Hope for the Warriors which serves wounded warriors and their families in a myriad of capacities. They in fact will be at each of the events during the weekend sharing how they benefit our brave freedom fighters and in advance, persons may visit their web site at www.hopeforthewarriors.org. This organization is housed on Camp Lejuene in Jacksonville, NC but serves all branches of service in all states.
The second organization is Paws with a Cause which was chosen as they provide assistance dogs for the hearing impaired and disabled. Their website is www.pawswithacause.org.
The third one is The Epiphany School and its global studies program. They too will be on-hand at most of the events to describe their programming. The school’s website is www.epiphany-nb.org.
The Nicholas Sparks Foundation looks forward to impacting many lives in positive, long-lasting manners for years to come. All involved invite everyone to participate at any level they desire during the weekend and when you have the opportunity, join us in thanking our wounded warriors for the sacrifices they made in order to serve our country. We will have 10-12 with a guest at lunch, 20-25 with a guest for the family fun night, they are our guests for The Lucky One premiere, 12 playing golf, and a few couples will be at the brunch – they will be visible throughout our community during April 20-22.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and please know that Wounded Warriors ARE benefitting from the weekend.
