The Steven M. Perez Foundation is being honored at the 9th Annual Sunrise Association Dare to Dream Benefit

We can’t believe it has been almost 20 years since WE lost Steven to leukemia.  His memory still brings smiles to so many people.  For the children battling cancer and their families, the SMP Foundation has impacted these families by helping their children “live their lives to the fullest.” Our support of Camp Sunrise has allowed these children to experience a summer of fun, excitement, and love with relief from their arduous treatments. We are so grateful and truly appreciative of your continued support and generosity.

Our hard work and 16-year partnership with Camp Sunrise are being honored.  We would love for you to join us Wednesday, November 16th, 2022 for this special honor, thanks to all of you! Many of you have seen the touching pictures of the sick children enjoying Camp Sunrise and asked how you can do more…this is your time!

The Dare to Dream benefit aims to raise one million dollars each year. This year’s event will be hosted by Dave Price, weather anchor – WNBC, filled with fantastic entertainment and an exciting silent auction. Guests will hear inspiring camper stories and learn more about how Sunrise has helped bring back joy to thousands of children with cancer and their families.
