Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

ON FEBRUARY 27th the Here with Us Foundation sponsored a trip to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in New York City! The turnout was huge with over 65 individuals and 65 staff members – two FULL Jitney Buses! As you can see from the photo gallery, the group had an incredible time walking the hallowed halls of the museum and taking pictures with all the replica celebrities and athletes. Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to provide a break from the regular day-to-day and provide these individuals the opportunity to get out and experience events and activities that we often take for granted. These memories are priceless and have our community buzzing long after the trip comes to an end. We appreciate any and all donations which help keep these events going!

As you can imagine, it is an undertaking to get everyone to the big city and back, exploring the vast halls of this incredible museum along the way. It is an honor to help enrich the lives of these young adults with autism. As you can tell by the pics, we had an amazing time!

Ron Louie 2021 Invitational

RON ENJOYED MANY PASSIONS IN LIFE, central to his heart and soul were family and friends. In his body and spirit: live music, softball, curling and near the top, golf. If you had had the pleasure of playing 18 holes with Ron, you’d have seen the quiet satisfaction he enjoyed from simply being out there upon expansive neatly manicured fields of green grass, the look of curiosity displayed as he mentally strategized tackling a given hole and the immense pleasure he took from unabashedly swinging away with all his might and smashing a golf ball rocketing straight down the fairway, sometimes to the right, but always far.

ON OCTOBER 4TH, over 100 golfers and attendees came out to support the Here With Us Foundation at the Windwatch Country Club. The event was a huge success and we thank all those who attended and contributed in various ways. We look forward to seeing you next year!
