Join us for the 5th Annual Compassion, Food and Fun weekend in memory of Christopher Comstock. Chris was a person who loved his friends, family and lived each moment to its fullest. Chris loved sports, tasty food and spending time with loved ones. As a child, Chris and his family received support from the Bedford Community as he fought through his catastrophic illness. The Comstock family, friends and community honors Chris’s memory and his compassion for others by organizing this 3-day event to raise money for the Bedford Community. The Bedford Community Foundation, Heart of Hope presents our 2018 Compassion, Food & Fun event. This year we will be raising money for three local causes: The Bedford Community Heart of Hope (ages 0-18), the Bedford Community Heart of Hope Too (ages 19-35) and the Bedford Community Foundation. The Heart of Hope and Heart of Hope Too funds help fund medical expenses for children (birth to 18) and young adults (19-35) with catastrophic illnesses within Bedford Township. Our 2018 event will also benefit the Bedford Communnity Foundation. The BCF mission is to Better our Community. Check out its website: www.bedfordcommunityfoundation.com to see all that it does. One of Bedford’s best kept secrets! We live in an extraordinary and generous community and at the Bedford Community Foundation we witness examples of giving each year. The Bedford Community Foundation was founded in 1991 to build a better community through vision, leadership and philanthropy. This will be a community wide event packed with tournaments, fun, and a time for all of us to join together and remember those we lost too soon. Mark your calendars for August 17-19, 2018 for a weekend of fun! Watch for local establishments supporting our Compassion, Food & Fun event at beginning of August.
