Philanthropy Report for September 2011

27 Sep 2011 9:27 AM | Pete Hansen (Administrator)

 Greetings Noble Friends,

 September has been a BUSY month for The Noblemen and The NobleWomen. We participated in some great events over the course of the month and were able to help out with some very noble philanthropy! Here is a quick review of what we have been up to:
- The Noblemen partnered with several local restaurants in hosting the "Families for our Fallen Heroes" event to benefit The Navy Seal Foundation and the families of the soldiers who were lost in the tragic helicopter crash in August in Afghanistan. The event was a tremendous success and the turnout and support from the locals in Virginia Beach was huge. The final tally on funds raised is not yet in but it should be well over the $50,000 mark!


- The NobleWomen were able to send 20 children to a soccer camp at Old Dominion University called "Charity Kicks". The Noblewomen worked with the YMCA to identify local kids who would not regularly have the opportunity to attend this type of camp. The children all received a t-shirt, raffle t-shirt, autograph session with ODU players, lunch from Qdoba and a goody bag. Awesome!

- Beginning this month there will be NobleTeens chapters in all of the Virginia Beach High Schools! This is a very exciting development in the NobleTeens program. The Noblemen have provided each of the 11 chapters with a $500 budget to help fund their activities as they learn how to "be a part of the solution"! Keep your ears peeled for more news from The NobleTeens, great things are coming!


- The Noblemen were asked by one of our members to help out a young man named Wyatt who is battling a rare disease called Fanconi Anemia, a rare disease which claims it's victims through cancer, leukemia, and bone marrow failure while they are still children or young adults. There is no known cure for this disease. The Noblemen are honored to make a gift to Wyatt's fundraising efforts through the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund.

- The Noblemen hosted our annual Special Needs Air Show earlier this month and it was a great time! Through our partnership with The Navy and the Oceana Master Jet Base we are able to host a big group of local special needs children to the Oceana Air Show. It is a truly wonderful day that provides these children and their families with a rare opportunity to get out and participate in something special. Pilots from the air show came and visited with the children in our tent throughout the day and then all of the children had a meet and greet with The Blue Angles at the end of the day.

"Mustang, this is Voodoo 3. Remaining MiGS are bugging out!"

- The Noblemen were happy to make a donation to The Kiwanis club to help fund their annual Kids Fishing Tournament! This is a great event that exposes local inner city kids to boating,fishing and a day they will not soon forget!
 - The Noblemen were also happy to help our membership "broker philanthropy" to a couple of other great causes. We provided a gift to the Seatack Community Civic League to help fund their youth based programs. We were also able to help one of our members broker a gift that provided brand new football helmets to a local youth football league whose uniforms and helmets were in disrepair.
  Thanks for checking in on this philanthropy report and reading about what The Noblemen and The NobleWomen have been up to in September! Please check back next month and find out more!
