Professionally, I have worked as a chef and restaurant owner throughout my career as the proprietor of Fiddler's Restaurant and then Chris's American Restaurant in Brookfield, Connecticut. In addition, I support several charities. What follows is a description of one of those organizations, the Ryan McElroy Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Founded by the family and friends of Ryan McElroy, the foundation raises funds to assist children living with cancer or other life-threatening diseases. Ryan McElroy was just short of five years old when he lost his battle with cancer.
The Ryan McElroy Children’s Cancer Foundation hosts an annual wine, beer, and food festival in October. Attendees can buy tickets to the event online for $40 each. In addition, the charity encourages donations through its online donation page.
Other events hosted by the Ryan McElroy Children’s Cancer Foundation include a volleyball tournament, a Christmas card fundraiser, a golf outing, and several school-based events. The Ryan McElroy Children’s Cancer Foundation has also hosted fund raising galas.
Corporate sponsors of the Ryan McElroy Children’s Cancer Foundation include Topical BioMedics, Cablevision, Clear Channel, Total Webcasting Solutions, and Excel Print and Promotions.
