President Sal Abbatiello and Vice President Darlene Free get into great detail about The Erika Roman Memorial Foundation and the big Celebrity Softball event August 6th. The Erika Roman Memorial Foundation raises awareness amongst the children of our communities. To empower children who have suffered from child abuse of all sorts and/or the growing epidemic of Cancer, and to solicit funding to support those programs that enrich their lives.
As a foster child, Erika Roman understood that being a role model to children in foster care, and mentoring them, would be crucial for their emotional and educational development. Erika's dream was fulfilled, and through her legacy the Foundation will support those programs that provide a nurturing environment to children in foster care in order to inspire them to achieve their goals - "to live their own dream".
Vivian Rivera took on the role of Vice President and embraced our mission as if she had known Erika personally. Vivian had been diagnosed with cancer shortly after assuming this very time consuming and demanding role. As a team they raised funds to help with the medical economic struggle and have vowed to continue supporting those battling cancer.
