Father's Day is a great opportunity to let you know how much you mean to me. Although you're my "master..." I prefer to think of you as Dad.

From the minute you walked into my life when I was a wee thing - you've treated me special. You gave me a job as head of security at Deliver the Dream - and allowed me to be pampered by all of the wonderful staff on a daily basis! They always make sure I'm feeling loved. I can't imagine not being at the office every day.

I know there have been times I've let you down. There have been accidents... chewing mistakes were made and I've done "puppy" things I'm not proud of. Believe me - I feel bad about that... I really do!

But... as I get older I realize there isn't anything I wouldn't do for you and the team at Deliver the Dream. It's kind of like you feel about the many families that we help at Deliver the Dream! We have the opportunity to walk into their lives at a time when they need support – helping them on the way to becoming whole, loving families again.

Yup, Pops… I'm proud of you and the whole Deliver the Dream team. I'm also grateful for the many friends that support the mission of DTD. They allow us to take care of the other Dads who give so much to their own family.

So, to all of the great fathers that do so much... Happy Father's Day!!!

Lick,
Fredrick
Head Security Officer, Deliver the Dream

Deliver the Dream is proud to recognize PNC Bank as our valued partner and sponsor of many great events. PNC has been a lead donor in 2017 with Red Hot 1, Red Hot 2 and two upcoming events including Soul Bowl and Denim and Diamonds. This dynamic relationship started in 2010 when Cressman Bronson, Senior VP of Marketing joined DTD's board. Mr. Bronson was dedicated to the mission of Deliver the Dream and began supporting fundraisers and the annual gala. Today, we are incredibly proud to have Michael Mitchell, Vice President and Branch Manager of 401 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale on the Deliver the Dream board.

Within months of joining the board, Mr. Mitchell went on his first retreat - #151 for families who have a child with epilepsy. This was an eye opening experience for Mitchell who was inspired to do more for DTD. Taking the charge early on, PNC earmarked dollars in January to support the efforts of 4 key events. "Having a company like PNC step up and dedicate funds to 4 of the 5 fundraising events that we host is critical to our success. It takes a village to send families away each month on retreats and PNC has well established their role as a player," said Paul Withrow.

PNC Bank is a long standing supporter of many charities across the United States. They serve over 175+ perpetual charitable trusts and private foundations which gives away over $50 million in grants in each year. The PNC Foundation's priority is to form partnerships with community-based nonprofit organizations within the areas they serve and award grants accordingly. Deliver the Dream is the beneficiary of such grants.

"Our culture is built on a set of values and a commitment by our employees to always do what we know to be right by those we serve."
- Bill Demchak, Chairman, President & Chief Executive Officer

We would like to recognize Tyler Gradl as our June Volunteer of the Month. Tyler came to us from the University of Central Florida DeVos Sport Business Management Program! Tyler decided to join us as a family pal for our retreat for families who have experienced the death of a loved one. He shined as a family pal and brought so much compassion and love to the retreat weekend. You would have never guessed that it was his first retreat, as he was an amazing volunteer and so helpful to his family. Thank you, Tyler, for joining us and we hope to see you on many more retreats!

The Lopez-Gorten Family: Patty, Steve, Logan and Kai. "I just really wanted to thank you again for this weekend and for the extraordinary job that you, your amazing team, and your fabulous volunteers did!

Your hard work and efforts did not go unnoticed, and we cannot thank you all enough! The weekend was truly life changing for our family, made us stronger, and brought us all closer together. Thank you so much!"-Patty Lopez (Mom)
