2023 – Parkinson’s Foundation
- Nearly one million people in the U.S. are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). This number is expected to rise to 1.2 million by 2030. Parkinson’s is the second-most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s disease.
- Nearly 90,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with PD each year.
- More than 10 million people worldwide are living with PD.
- The incidence of Parkinson’s disease increases with age, but an estimated four percent of people with PD are diagnosed before age 50.
- Men are 1.5 times more likely to have Parkinson’s disease than women.
The combined direct and indirect cost of Parkinson’s, including treatment, social security payments and lost income, is estimated to be nearly $52 billion per year in the U.S. alone.
Medications alone cost an average of $2,500 a year and therapeutic surgery can cost up to $100,000 per person.

2022 – Wounded Warrior Project
More than 52,000 servicemen and women physically injured in recent military conflicts. 500,000 living with invisible wounds, from depression to post-traumatic stress disorder. 320,000 experiencing debilitating brain trauma.
Advancements in technology and medicine save lives – but the quality of those lives might be profoundly altered.
The numbers speak for themselves, because not every warrior can. With the support of our community of donors and team members, Wounded Warrior Project gives a voice to those needs and empower our warriors to begin the journey to recovery.

2021 – No Kid Hungry – $4,070
No Kid Hungry is a national campaign run by Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to solve problems of hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world. After 25 years of successfully investing in local nonprofits and helping find the best approaches to eradicating poverty and hunger, Share Our Strength launched No Kid Hungry in 2010.
As a child hunger organization, ending childhood hunger is our primary focus, though Share Our Strength continues to invest in and develop other campaigns.

2020 – BIG – Brookwood Community in Georgetown – $4,350
Brookwood in Georgetown is a very “out of the box” innovative vocational community for adults with special needs where everything we make we sell in a beautiful high end gift shop, cafe and greenhouse. We want to change the way our world views this population by taking the “status quo” of providing these individuals with custodial care to these individuals creating beautiful, marketable items to sell to help sustain the vocational community they enjoy everyday. They have become artisans, bakers, gardeners, card makers, jewelry makers, and more.
2019 – St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – $6,300
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities (ALSAC), exists solely to raise the funds and awareness necessary to operate St. Jude. In fact, approximately 75 percent of the funds necessary to sustain and grow St. Jude must be raised each year by ALSAC from generous donors who are united with us in a common goal: Finding cures. Saving children®.
2018 – Gracefully Strong – $7,955
Gracefully Strong shows girls they are each wonderfully made and that inner strength and self-worth are discovered and nurtured through healthy physical, spiritual and emotional choices.
2017 – Center for Brain Health – $8,689
At the Center for BrainHealth, we are pioneers in a new field of research that powers brain strength and performance, discovering markers of health, drivers of performance, preventive care protocols and interventions for brain recovery. The Brain Performance Institute utilizes that research to empower everyone to think better for themselves, and take charge of their brain. Together, we can unlock brain potential.
