South Sun – Wine & Cheese Night Benefiting The Oscar Litwak Foundation

A huge thanks to our friends at South Sun for organizing this amazing event!

Wine and Cheese

Run…Ferenz…Run!

Our dear friend Ferenz will be running his third marathon; this year he takes on the N.Y. City Marathon on November 3. Although it is always fun to root for him, this time is specially exciting and important as he has chosen to run representing The Oscar Litwak Foundation.

Ferenz has generously offered to turn his effort and sweat into funds to help the Foundation “Lift the Spirits of Hospitalized Children” by pledging a donation for each kilometer he succesfully completes in the marathon. Please help us cheer him on and join Ferenz’s effort by also making a pldege for each kilometer he runs during the race. Ferenz’s goal…to raise enough funds ($2,000) to be able to send a Mobile Playroom unit to another hospital where hundreds of children can benefit from it.

Not only is he facing the prospect of finishing the marathon, but also has chosen this particular race to establish a personal record by completing it under 3 hours and 40 minutes! If he does so, he has selflessly offered to double his pledge…to encourage Ferenz to push his own limits and run his best race ever, bet on him by also doubling your pledge if he is able to beat this time.

Thank you Ferenz for allways supporting The Oscar Litwak Foundation and thank you all for supporting Ferenz and this great cause!

To make a pledge and run with Ferenz, visit the Plede Page!

Thank You Leo!

In honor of Leo’s- birthday, the Bergstein Family has a goal of raising $2000 to sponsor a mobile playroom. The mobile playroom will bring entertainment to hospitalized children when they have no other access to play. So far they have raised. $1,295 towards that amount.

We are so thankful and proud for this incredible accomplishment…

We absolutely LOVE our volunteers!

Nikhil is not only passionate about “Lifting the Spirits of Hospitalized Children“, but also about taking care of our planet and its environment. He organized and rallied his community to donate recyclables which he later collected, cleaned, processed and took to the recycling center where he raised funds for The Oscar Litwak Foundation. Just an amazing job!

We were blown-away when we received this e-mail message from Nikhil: “I just wanted to share some pictures from my first recycling effort to raise funds for a mobile playroom. I am excited to be a part of this great cause to bring a smile to a child’s face. I am proud and excited that I made $30. But, I also know, as Robert Frost said, “I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.” Thank you so much for this opportunity to help bring a smile to a child’s face.

Nikhil

We are also very lucky to have had the help of Hailey and Rebecca who’s dedication and commitment to the mission of the Foundation is just unbelievable – both organized and ran incredibly successful toy drives at their respective schools (Chaminade and Harvard-Westlake) collecting hundreds of toys, games and arts & crafts materials to stock many Mobile Playroom Units, but most importantly, raising awareness of the difficult situations hospitalized children often find themselves in.

Hailey, Rebecca and Nikhil, we are honored and humbled by your efforts – we are sincerely grateful and very, very proud!
