DREAMS DO COME TRUE LUNCHEON AND FUNDRAISING EVENT

Dreams Do Come True luncheon and fundraising event  would not have been possible without the commitment and dedication to our mission by the following people and organizations: 
 
 First and foremost, my manager and wonderful husband, John Caruso  
 
 
 The dedicated, talented and hardworking board members – a mere thank you does not express the magnitude of my appreciation for sharing my passion, your efforts and accomplishments with the formation of our nonprofit and our premier luncheon/ fundraising event. Each and every one of you has contributed your expertise and knowledge in making dreams come true through HEROES Foundation of America. A special recognition goes to Geanine Wester for all her brilliant marketing ideas and strategies, Kathy Bonner for her leadership, and Helen Ott for coordinating and managing the fundraising event.  I would be remiss if I would not mention my beautiful niece and organized secretary, Patrice Sherling who ensures proper management of the organization.  
 
 
Mr. Dixon Li for his gracious hospitality at Mojito’s and Sweet Ginger  
 
 
Mrs. Dixon Li for her creative and beautiful centerpieces.  
 All our friends, family and generous sponsors to the non-profit organization, and donors to the Silent Auction
