Another exciting part of this year’s event is the charity auction to raise money for the LifeForce Foundation.  The foundation was created to supply AED’s and other medical supplies, along with education, to families or organizations that in much need of an AED, but cannot afford one.  One Hundred percent of all proceeds from all fundraising go towards the foundation’s mission.  There is not a single penny that is used for salaries of any kind.  This year’s auction will feature sports memorabilia, tickets to professional games, gift certificates to restaurants, spas and stores, and much more.


Please tell everyone and anyone, even if they do not teach CPR, or work in the medical field or as a rescuer.  This day is for everyone.  You can choose to come to see the guest speaker and awards, or just enjoy more time in the park, and come for the buffet. 


If you know of any “Hero” that saved a life by performing CPR and/or using an AED, please let us know their story.  We will nominate them for an award.  The person(s) will be our guest along with one other person of their choosing to attend the day.  If you know who the “Survivor” is also, the same applies.  Sometimes it is tough to get the information on the survivor, due to privacy laws, or their state of health.
