Casino Night 2014, October 17th

casino_night_invite_2014The Foundation runs various fundraising activities throughout the year for its benefactors, including an annual Casino Night, which included celebrity guests like Dave Schultz, two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Philadelphia Flyers and 2009 Flyers Hall of Fame inductee.


The Foundation has also held celebrity events with Andrew Firestone, of Firestone Vineyards and “The Bachelor” fame and a book-signing of The Big Moo, by Donna Sturgess, VP of Innovations at GlaxoSmithKline. Participants have found these events not only stimulating, but are gratified by substantially benefiting those in need.

Positive new developments for Durand’s Thrift Store

Durand Thrift Store has secured 2 large donations from Just4Kids seasonal consignment sale; donations included children’s clothing/shoes, toys, baby equipment, games and sporting equipment.

Just4Kids continues to partner with Durand Thrift and donates all unsold items from their seasonal sale four times a year.

Also, our individuals have taken a more active vocational role in the day to day operation of the Thrift store. Individuals are now involved with the pricing of items, completing the monthly sales calendar and assisting with window designing.

We have received positive feedback on the speed and efficiency of pick-ups of household items to be delivered to the Thrift Store.
