Helping Families in the Name of Sophie Jane Darr

Sophie Jane Darr Golf Outing

The winning team drinks from the Sophie Jane Darr Cup as Jane Rapone looks on

The 44 team took part in the Annual Sophie Jane Darr Golf Outing that contributes 100% of the proceeds to families affected by the unfairness of childhood disease. The foundation provides financial assistance from a chair lift for an adolescent for independent bathing to a bus pass for an overworked mother needing transportation to visit her sick child. 44 partner Phil Rapone and his wife Jane started the Sophie Jane Darr Foundation after the death of their granddaughter Sophie who died from brain cancer in 2007. They have directly helped many families through referrals from local child advocacy organizations as well as social workers from local children’s hospitals. At this year’s outing, Jane read touching thank you letters from several families of children battling cancer and other illnesses helped by the foundation. 44 Business Capital is very proud to be the presenting sponsor at this year’s golf outing and encourage all our followers/supporters/colleagues and business contacts to visit the Sophie Jane Darr Foundation website at: www.sophiejanedarrchildrensfoundation.org
