Equity Prime Mortgage | Planned Giving

We want to thank our friends at Equity Prime Mortgage for their continued support of David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation and our mission to offer financial assistance, services and HOPE to families battling a cancer diagnosis. This creative planned giving initiative was forged by our Communications Director Dani Corso through her company Volatile Media Management.

The Equity Prime Mortgage Leadership Team, Staff and their clients are responsible for positively affecting the lives of so many families battling cancer. The result has been a record-setting and monumental donation of $42,375.00 to DDBCF over the past two years! These donations are used towards a multitude of items for our families including: mortgage/rent, utilities, transportation costs to and from treatments, medical bills and groceries to keep food on the table!

All of us at David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation appreciate and truly value the year-long efforts of the entire Equity Prime Mortgage team and could not be happier to be partnering with them again in 2017! The Equity Team has set the Gold Standard for creative planned giving initiatives but you can join Equity as A Beacon Of Hope for our families battling a cancer diagnosis by contacting us today to learn more about Planned Giving and David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation!

Our first example of planned giving started in 2013 with Paul Samaniego when he created a bi-weekly employee contribution through his company to David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation (DDBCF). This was met in 2014 by a similar monthly donation by another friend of the Foundation, Sue Vilardi. Their planned giving initiatives continue today in 2016! Thank you both.

We were informed at the beginning of 2015 about a very exciting new partnership between DDBCF and our friends at Equity Prime Mortgage NJ. A heartfelt thanks to our Director Dani Corso and her company Volatile Media Management for fostering the vision for this new partnership! Our hometown mortgage specialists committed to donate $25.00 to DDBCF for every loan closed by their Manahawkin, NJ office! The end result was a monumental donation of $18,000.00 to DDBCF! We must thank the entire staff at Equity Prime Mortgage NJ for their personal investment in the mission of David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation to bring HOPE to our patients and their families affected by a cancer diagnosis! Please contact our friends at Equity Prime Mortgage NJ for all your Mortgage needs by calling them today at: (609) 597-0007.

In 2016, several other individuals and businesses have joined in on the planned giving initiative. It’s generous and selfless efforts like the one’s mentioned above that will sustain the HOPE that DDBCF provides to our families throughout the year! Please click on the links below to download your copy of our Planning Giving Initiative and view the sponsorship levels available for all of our events.

THANK YOU!

We held our 3rd Annual Island Gala “A Night on the Boardwalk” on Friday August 14th and it proved to be our most successful fundraiser to date with a NET of $94,577.43! Our Mega 50/50 Raffle Winners were Angela Monafo and Taryn Parascand (Congratulations!) but there’s no doubt that the real winners of the night were our patients and families affected by a cancer diagnosis! Thank you.

We do need to thank a few people that were instrumental in making our 3rd Annual Island Gala possible. That starts with our executive committee in charge of planning and sponsoring various aspects of this year’s event. The Reynolds Family, Reynolds Landscaping & Garden Shop, Steber Family, McCabe Family, Catherine Deely and Board of Director Members Kim Manzella & Dani Corso. This group started its’ planning/management efforts in January 2015 and continued right up until the last item was packed up around 2:00am Saturday morning! It takes a monumental effort from a dedicated team to pull off an event like this one and this group was simply amazing!

Our Host Venue for the 3rd year in a row was our friends at the Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club! Tom Hughes, Jaimee Boyle and Brittany Solon treat the entire planning process, meetings and night of the event as if it was a special party for a family member and for that we are eternally grateful.  The resort is absolutely beautiful and the incredible staff make all of our guests feel like VIP’s!

Our sponsors play a critical role in the overall success of the Foundation being able to answer the increased number of patient requests. Thank you to our Cyclone $5,000.00 Sponsors: Reynolds Landscaping, Steber Family, McCabe Family, Equity Prime Mortgage and Allied World Assurance Company. Reynolds Landscaping and the Steber family were also responsible for sponsoring this year’s amazing band Monte Carlo from Philadelphia. Thank you to our Himlayan $2,500.00 Sponsor: D. Finelli Construction and Congratulations to Dave and Laurie on the birth of their baby girl Lyla Marie. Thank you to our Carousel $1,000.00 Sponsors: Anderson Insurance Agency, G. Anderson Agency, Brandon Systems, Cosimano Family, Shannon Keyes DMD, Subbogies Restaurant and Zelus Consulting Group LLC.

Our Auctions are always top notch thanks to the efforts of Cathy Deely, Kim Manzella, Dani Corso, Sophia Steber, the Reynolds Family (Peg, Katie & Ashley) and our extremely generous local businesses that want to participate in our events. A special thanks to Kyle Baddorf Executive Chef at Garces Trading Co. for not only producing one very successful auction dinner but accepting to do 3 of them!!!

We would not be able to hold our events were it not for the tremendous support from our volunteers throughout the year especially at this Goliath of an event. A special thanks to Tony Coon, Ryan Johnson, John Manzella, Nick Staub, Lisa Anderson and James Donahower.

Our guests (former and new) and everybody listed above demonstrated a genuine commitment to the mission of the Foundation and generosity of spirit that could only be described as inspirational! Our team from DDBCF walked away from this year’s Island Gala knowing that our Beacon of Hope will shine a little brighter for our patients/families affected by a cancer diagnosis thanks to all of you!

Mark your calendars now for the 4th Annual Island Gala on Friday August 5th 2016!
