The Ben Yorgey Foundation is passionately dedicated to honoring the legacy of Ben Yorgey and generating funds for graduating high school students with special needs across the Lehigh Valley. Ben was driven by an ultimate purpose -- to share his gift of love, and we are all changed people because of it. And through this change, Ben Yorgey Foundation exists to make a positive impact, an impact Ben would be proud of. Never meet a stranger. There is no such thing. Love everyone.
The Ben Yorgey Foundation, which is 501C3, was established in order to raise money to support our goals. The annual vehicle for raising resources is THE BEN EVENT. The event is held in July of each year - Friday, July 20 and Saturday, July 21 this year - at Macungie Memorial Park.
Activities for The Ben Event include a "Friday Night Kick-Off," a 5K race, the 1-mile Fun Walk, Breakfast In The Park (new for 2012!), Ben's Block Party, sports events for athletes with special needs, a “Wheels of Time” Cruise Night, Chinese Auction ... AND LOTS MORE!
Be sure to join us between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 21st for our first Breakfast In The Park at Macungie Memorial Park during The Ben Event! Breakfast includes pancakes, sausage, fruit, coffee, tea, juice and milk. The cost is only $6 per person and children age 5 and under eat FREE!
We are looking for your support to make The Ben Event a success. Volunteer, participation, donation and sponsorship opportunities are available. Your support will enable the Ben Yorgey Foundation to help the lives of local graduating seniors with special needs.
