SHADE Foundation of America
June 23, 2011
My name is Steven Peljovich and I run the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston, Massachusetts. I was fortunate enough to begin working with SHADE in 2007 as a food sponsor for their annual Bubbles and Bites Event. Over the last 4 years I have been able to see firsthand the great work that Shonda, Sue and their team have been able to do in the communities around Boston. They have not only built playground and school equipment to provide safe cover from the sun for children, but they have been instrumental in getting the word about the dangers of sun exposure to the masses in Boston. I have been a part of their fundraisers in Boston over the last 4 years and was able to host a concert event for them last Summer and have been working with them to make this an annual event. Their staff is highly dedicated to their cause and incredibly thankful for any and every piece of support they get.
