who we help

This ball was born as a means to directly impact the undernourished children of southern Delaware. Our state is a jewel in the Mid-Atlantic region, with thriving beaches attracting millions of seasonal visitors regularly. We too enjoy the riches of our special seaside locale, from fine dining to stellar boutique shopping, while a shadow population exists beside us, mostly unnoticed in the bustle of beach activity. This population includes children who, in our midst, go to sleep hungry on a regular basis.
Our goal is to raise $200,000,to be used for the sole purpose of providing necessary assistance to these underprivileged kids. We all share a love of our area, and we all have a stake in its success. I ask you to help us meet this worthy goal, with your sponsorship of the “H4 Initiative: Help Harry Halt Hunger” 2013 Christmas Ball, to be held on December 14, 2013, at the Rehoboth Beach Country Club. I commit to designating 100% of the Ball’s proceeds toward feeding the neediest of our area’s children.
While monetary donations are an intrinsic part of the initiative’s success, community participation shares equal importance. I reach out now to my friends in the business community to donate a gift certificate or retail item for auction at this event.
Your donation translates into support for the Harry K Foundation, created to provide food and assistance to children in our area who desperately need our help. My mission — to never allow a child in our community to go to sleep hungry again — can be achieved, through partnerships such as yours that will contribute to the success of this event.
A member of our preparations committee will be contacting you to discuss your contribution and share ticketing information. We would be most grateful for your help in reaching our goal.
