The 2011 Dempster Family Foundation Grant Awards Announced
The Dempster Family Foundation awarded 15 charitable organizations grants through its second annual grant cycle. The Dempster Family Foundation strives to lend support to charities and organizations supporting children with a 22q11.2 deletion (sometimes more commonly known as DiGeorge Syndrome/VCFS). Funds for the grant cycle were primarily raised through the annual fundraiser, Casino Night (held in July 2011 in Chicago), as well as through TEAM DEMPSTER partners holding fundraisers for the Foundation including: D’Agostino’s Pizza and Pub, Bernie’s Tap and Grill, Candyality, Potbelly’s Sandwich Shop, The Palm Restaurant and others (please click here for complete list of generous partners), as well as through generous donations from other individuals throughout the year.
