Local Family Raises Money for Good Samaritan's Child Life Department
CHARLOTTE, NC – September 29, 2016 – The DiLorenzo Family of Hauppauge paid a visit to Good Sam's Pediatric Unit to say "thank you" for the care that their daughter, Sofia, received while in the PICU this past June. After raising money for Good Sam's Child Life Department, a close friend, Brian Kiley of Davidson, NC, matched the funds through his private foundation. Haven's Foundation is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization founded to help children that are sick or in need and to support the families and facilities that care for them. Brian and his wife, Janice, founded the organization earlier this year. Brian made a special trip up from North Carolina to present Good Samaritan's pediatric staff with a check for $5,000 to fund a new "musician in residence" program for the unit. Thank you to the DiLorenzo's for giving Good Sam the privilege of caring for Sofia and, to Brian, Janice and Haven's Foundation for this special gift for our smallest patients.
