BENEFITING: RENDINA FAMILY FOUNDATION INC
Instead of gifts this year, I am asking you to donate to my good friend's foundation which supports individuals and families affected by brain cancer. The name of the foundation is the Rendina Family Foundation. The foundation has been in existence since 1997, and has donated over $5 million to organizations nationwide. Their mission is near and dear to the family's heart as the founder, Bruce Rendina, succumbed to brain cancer in 2006. They are like a second family to me. Their youngest son, David, is about my age. We were fraternity brothers at Florida State, and roommates when we studied abroad in Florence, Italy. We've shared many good times and it would mean a lot to me if you could put your money towards the most important gift that anyone could have - hope.
