Review for Fun For Cure, Inc., Scarsdale, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

"Fun for Cure tennis lived up to its name: it was lots of fun for my daughter. The organizers did so many things right -- from setting goals before every session, to providing healthy snacks, to enlisting buddies who enhanced the social experience. As a tennis player myself, I am thrilled to see my daughter's newly found enthusiasm for the sport."

Review for Fun For Cure, Inc., Scarsdale, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In my four years with Fun For Cure, Inc., I can honestly say that there are not many organizations as worthy of praise and recognition for their abundance of genuine human compassion and love. This organization is small and not nearly as developed as it's potential will allow. Never has Fun For Cure, Inc. acquired any funding that fully covered it's expenses, and never had this organization charged a membership fee to cover any costs. The founder, Florence Pecoraro-Egan, the volunteers and associates, and the Board of Directors are working tirelessly toward the mission of health and wellness through therapeutic recreation for chronically ill children and those with special needs. I would never want to serve on a board that has less dedication and sincerity as the Fun For Cure, Inc. board of directors, and I will give my full 100% moral and public support to this organization at all times. I also hope to continue to help promote the purpose of creating for a child a quality of life that is great enough to spark a glimmer of strength and hope for a bright and healthy future.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Form a committee for fundraising so that Fun For Cure, Inc. would be able to climb out of debt and build a reserve fund for it's purposes.
