5th Annual Strikes Against Stroke – A Huge Success!

Thanks to our generous donors, sponsors, and partners of the Foundation, we had an extremely successful fundraiser this year. The event was held at the Rio Hondo Events Center in Downey, California on the 23rd of September. Hundreds showed up to support Hope After Stroke Foundation and the Diane Manarino Memorial Fund event beneficiary. The night started off with a mingle outside, overlooking the scenic Rio Hondo Golf Course. Guests were called in for dinner after and an auction hosted by the very talented and renowned Chuck Dukas. Cheryl Ming – brain stem stroke survivor and new employee of the foundation – was honored during the night for her contributions and an eponymous “Cheryl Ming Fund” was announced to benefit survivors of stroke that seek higher education.

Enough funds were raised during this event to continue our operations and programs well into 2018. We thank everyone who attended or supported us in this endeavor and we hope to see you at the next event! See pictures below of the evening. Thanks again to Melissa Sonico for the photography.
