A Great Start to 2012

Dear Friends,

I would like bring you up to date on a couple items.

First, I’ve accepted a temporary position with American Cancer Society and I start Monday, January 30th! I’m extremely grateful for this opportunity and I’m looking forward to working for such a wonderful organization.

That being said, I will be stepping down as President from David’s Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation DD&BCF. I will always serve as Founder and will serve for the next two years as Vice President. I will remain actively involved in the Foundation but will take a step back from the day to day activities. We thought it was the right thing to do for myself and American Cancer Society. The great news for me is that Tim Hall will serve as President for the next two years and that only means greater heights for the Foundation under his guidance. My mom Joan Caldarella will remain on the board and we are very pleased to announce the addition of 2 new board members. We would like to welcome Jeremy DeFilippis as Treasurer and Joyce DeGregorio as Secretary. Tim, my mom and I could not be happier to have these two people joining the board. Collectively, we look forward to working alongside all of you: “Saving Lives by Fighting Cancer Together”!

Jeremy is co-owner of Jetty and his first suggestion for us was to encourage our supporters to send us pictures of family, friends and pets wearing our DD&BCF T-shirts. Please email pictures to: info@davidsdreamandbelieve.org. We will rotate these pictures on the main page of our website. We want to thank Nardi’s Tavern & Jetty for putting together our first fundraiser for 2012. We raised $760.00 on a Saturday night in January on LBI. We cannot thank our supporters enough for coming out time and time again. We are currently planning a February “bowl a thon” and will be posting details on our website soon. We want to thank the many individuals who have reached out so far regarding local fundraising ideas benefitting DD&BCF. We are excited and humbled by all of your support. Stay tuned to our website for details on Coquina Jam and Crabbin for a Cure 2012. Details coming soon!

Dream and Believe,
