Epilepsy Services Foundation, Inc.
August 12, 2009

Epilepsy Services Foundation is an organization committed to funding valuable services to all those affected by Epilepsy. The organization raises funds through golf tournaments, an annual "Hare Race", Live Music Series, BBQ ribs for kids and more. Through the funds raised by ESF, people are given the opportunity to continue their education; both those directly impacted by Epilepsy and those looking for ways to help those affected with Epilepsy. Every year through grants given by ESF, kids are given the opportunity to attend Camp Boggy Creek. At this camp, kids with Epilepsy are allowed to be around other kids with Epilepsy and are given the chance to feel "normal". I ask you to visit their website and see for yourself the great experience this offers. For years, Epilepsy Services Foundation has proven to be a strong member of the Tampa Bay area. With the guidance and direction of the Executive Directo, Tom Orth, ESF remains at the forefront of reputable and honorable organizations.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The smiles on the faces of kids who might not otherwise have an opportunity to smile. Through Camp Boggy Creek, Epilepsy Services Foundation allows these kids to do something they don't usually get to do... act like kids.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the feeling that I truly make a direct impact on people's lives.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Eager to help. THey all understood the reason we are here is to do good for others.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Send more kids to school to learn ways to treat Epilepsy. They could send more kids to camp and allow them to feel good about themselves.

Ways to make it better...

We could have sent more kids to camp.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the lack of knowledge about Epilepsy. I would like to see more of the general public learn more about Epilepsy.
