We’ve got a special announcement below, but first we wanted to briefly inform those attending Sunday’s benefit at Union Trust that any purchases at the event, including the casino after party, will have to be cash or check. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone!
Dave Logar Memorial Fund
We are thrilled to report that the Dave Logar Memorial Fund will be supporting Kevin this year! The Dave Logar Memorial 5K and 1 Mile Walk for Paralysis will take place on May 20that Cooper River Park. We are very grateful for the Fund’s support, and we wanted to share it with you in case anyone is interested in participating or supporting the organization. Sign-ups for the race close May 13th at midnight, and any contributions would be welcome.

Thanks to Pat McCourt, a former coworker of Joe Neary (Sr.) at Johnson Matthey, who has participated in this race for a number years.
Here’s a bit about the Dave Logar Memorial Fund:
Dave was a star soccer player at Rowan University when he was hit by a car while he was landscaping and left paralyzed from the chest down. Even after the accident, Dave kept the same determination, work ethic, and positivity that people saw in Dave before the accident. Dave passed away 14 years ago due to complications in the filter to his lungs, but we keep the 5K Run and Walk going to remember Dave, and to help individuals in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area living with paralysis. We also donate money to the Buoniconti Fund for paralysis research and the Dave Logar Scholarship Fund, but our main goal is to help local individuals living with paralysis who have costs not covered under insurance.
