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.

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.

Amazing is an understatement to describe this foundation and their efforts to find a cure for pediactric cancer. I have teamed up with this foundation and each sale of my owl hats I have agreed to donate a portion of it's proceeds in hopes that every little bit counts. And that one day this foundation would be the reason why something great has become of this! They are wonderful women whom I have known since my childhood and I am so proud of all their hard work and dedication to this foundation.

This event was amazing for so many reasons. Not only is this an amazing foundation but it was started in memory of an amazing woman. Mrs. Marks would be so proud to see the wonderful things her beautiful daughters have done. I had such a wonderful time at the ball and not only connected with old friends but made great new friends. The music was excellent, the food delicious, the entertainment spectacular, and the decor breathtaking.It was such an honor to contribute to the cause. I am proud to have say I attended this event and even prouder to call Crystal, Isis, and Tiffany my friends. I can't wait for the next event!!!!

Dear Mrs. Kathleen Marks, Your daughters have grown into amazing woman. The amount of energy that has been contributed to your cause has exemplified the positive human spirit. Unconditional love is the only way to describe how your family members remember their mother. Please know that their lives have been filled with your graciousness and they remember you every moment. John misses you terribly and is so happy to see you everyday, in his children. Rest knowing you did well.
