The 4th Annual Steak Fry Fundraiser is Set for October 16th

What an exciting year it has been for Kathy’s House Foundation! We opened our first Hospitality House at 615 Glen Have Avenue in Glen Dale, WV. Whoo Hoo!

Kathy’s House provides free or significantly reduced cost lodging to patients and their families while receiving medical care away from their home communities.

It is usually a stressful time in which we like to provide as much comfort and carefree mindset as possible.

With the help of generous and compassionate donors like you, Kathy’s House Foundation can provide for the physical comfort and emotional needs of families during a medical crisis so that they may participate fully with the medical team as partners in care.

With that being said, we are thrilled to announce that we are moving forward with our ever-popular annual fundraising event Steak Fry & 5K Run/Walk.

Both events provide much needed funds for our families. We plan to hold both at St. Jude Park on Saturday, October 16, 2021. Race registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. The run/race will begin at 9:00 a.m.

The Steak Fry offers engaging music, deliciously marinated steaks with all the sides, spirited beverages, and lucky winners. Music begins at 4:00 with dinner following at 6:00.

This is critical fundraiser for us. We need you. Keep in mind what we are doing here. Providing comfort, care, ease, worry-free lodging while loved ones are in the hospital or experiencing a true life-stressor.

Or maybe a patient needs a comfortable place to stay pre and post hospital procedures.

Another example requiring Kathy’s House is, respite after a family home is lost from a fire or a flood.

This is what Kathy would have done; opened her home to those in need. This Foundation and this House is her legacy.

She passed suddenly. Her family understands that ‘this is what she would have wanted.’

Kathy dedicated her life to helping others. Her own home was a place of love, warmth, and kindness. Her doors were always open to everyone. It was a gathering place that was full of memories during good times and bad. While Kathy’s House was created in Kathy’s memory, it was also established to carry on her legacy of being helpful and kind to everyone.

During this transformative time, one of the most trying in the archives of mankind, we need you now more than ever.

Please consider being a sponsor for this special event.

The sponsorship packages are attached. All levels of donations will be gladly accepted.

Bless you,
