A Night in Eagles Country

April 28, 2023
Another memorable night, this time at the Budweiser Event Center for a some Eagles playoff action and an opportunity to lift up a young man that could use a little boost.

Ben was hoping I could join he and Stephen for a boys night out and maybe sprinkle a little “Cappy Magi…

It’s been another amazing day with lots of memories and one incredible highlight. Elliot Gibbs was born with cerebral palsy and has always loved hockey.

The Long Awaited Call

April 24, 2023
Today is about Patrick “P-Daddy” Donnelly. This amazing young man was placed into my life about a year ago and has been my right hand man ever since. Patrick was 21 when he was diagnosed with congestive heart failure that nearly ended his life and required the insertion of a LVAD pump to allow his heart to continue beating. The LVAD was only a temporary fix as my friend has been awaiting a hear…
