  • Thanks a Million! – Successful 2014 for CCFK!



    Thanks a million !!!! Literally. Since our fabled “Rage in the Cage” skyrocketed to fame eight years ago, your friendship and philanthropy have enabled Charlie’s Champions to donate a million dollars to the Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) at Winthrop-University Hospital.

    On February 28th, legions of youngsters from the Garden City community showed their spirited support for kids with cancer by competing at “Underage in the Cage,” at Cherry Valley Country Club. The next day, blustery March winds were blowing, but the courts at Cherry Valley Country Club, Garden City Country Club, and Hempstead Country Club were warm inside as a record number of platform tennis players brought their legendary heat to “Rage in the Cage.”

    An evening of dining and dancing Saturday night was the frosting on the cake. Charlie Schmitt joined his father, John, at the microphone, and eloquently acknowledged the audience’s ongoing support. Charlie was diagnosed at the age of six, and is now a healthy teenager enjoying all that life should be. John introduced Bobby Menges who ‘jammed’ with the Roberti Band; he congratulated Bobby on being honored as “Man of the Year” by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

    John thanked local businesses and the community for joining the Foundation in its advocacy for children with cancer. He announced that their collaborative efforts had resulted in the Foundation’s ability to donate a million dollars to the CCFK over the past eight years. These funds are essential to the CCFK’s programs and helped shepherd Charlie and his family through some really tough times. Free to CCFK patients and families, they bring a lot of joy, hope, and strength to the people who need it most.

    Your personal support sustains those services and we are all so grateful ! We especially appreciate the steadfast commitment of our friends and family who stand with us as champions in our enduring advocacy for kids with cancer and their families. Special thanks to Jennifer Schmitt, our behind-the-scenes “Underage in the Cage” wizard and magic-maker .
