Cara McGettigan is the inspiration for our cause.

· Providing monetary donations to CHOP and The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House (PRMH), Shriners Hospital, Virtua Voorhees Hospital and other related programs
· Contributing to CHOP and PRMH Annual Toy Drive used for holiday and birthday gifts for patients and their siblings
