One of the best non-for-profits I've had the pleasure of coming in contact with. As a nurse this one is near and dear to my heart. I've had the pleasure of attending a number of their fictions and couldn't be more delighted with them. Run by a wonderful group of young women in honor of a wonderful women.

This is a fantastic organization - well run by great people who truly care about their mission. I try to attend every event offered. The most recent Masquerade Ball was one of the best nights out I had in a long time. We were the lucky winners of a champagne brunch for 2 through the silent auction. I look forward to the next even and next year's ball!!!

I provide web related services to this phenomenal non-profit on a pro-bono basis. The foundation is so true to it's word, raising thousands of dollars for cancer research and to help out local families in need. I am so proud of the effort that they put in and how they ensure that all of the money raised goes where it is needed most!

When my friends and I attended our first Masquerade charity event, we knew then and there that we would come back every year. What an amazing group of people who know how to throw a great party for an incredibly important cause.

This was my first year working with Crystal and her team at the Kathleen F Marks Memorial Foundation. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them and understand their total commitment to their goals of the foundation. The tremendous amount of work they put into all their projects is absolutely amazing and the results of their programs are outstanding. They have helped serve the members of their community in ways that are immeasurable.

We both volunteered at and attended the KFM Foundation's 2012 Masquerade Ball and it was a blast. They did such a wonderful job organizing and executing the event. If you missed it this year, make sure that you go next year. You won't regret it. We want to make it back next year if possible. The charity does a great job and really helps people in need.

What a loving , living tribute to their mother's memory. The KFM Foundation might be focused on raising money to help find cures, but my experience with Crystal and Isis is that they are focused on making people smile and feel better TODAY.

Crystal first contacted us the summer of 2013, she wanted us to make a wig out of Isis's beautiful hair.
When I learned the wig was for a 20-something year old stranger who was facing cancer I was completely touched. It is one thing to raise money, it is another thing to make it personal. This year we are making 3 wigs out hair donated by KFM for cancer patients who are in financial need.

Their mom named them so appropriately. Isis a goddess and Crystal a sparkling light. The KFM Foundation is destined to continue brightening people's lives and doing great things.

I have volunteered for the KFM Foundation at several events over the past 2 and a half years such as the Masquerade Ball. The KFM Foundation is run by passionate people that do great work. They made me feel as if I were an everyday member of the organization. I have volunteered for other groups and was made to feel like the hired help.

I have volunteered with the KFM foundation numerous times over the years and have found it to be a wonderful, well-run organization run by passionate individuals. As a matter of fact, when another local fundraising event was in danger of not occurring, the folks from KFM stepped in to help make it a reality.
