Charitable Causes We Support

We feel it is important to give back to our country and communities.  
Some of the growing list of causes we support include:

Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation

Mark’s high school classmate and friend Glen Doherty served as a Navy Seal and gave his life storming into Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/2012 to help save fellow Americans under attack when nobody else would.  Mark’s dad also proudly served as a Captain and Medical Officer in the U.S. Air Force. We proudly support the GDMF which provides scholarships to help our heroes as they transition from military to civilian life. 

Eastwood Ranch Foundation




As a family physician, Mark’s dad loved providing care for all living things – people, animals and plants. He especially loved his dogs and contributed to numerous animal charities. We support the Eastwood Foundation’s great work to find homes for animals in need.  We also like all things Eastwood.  Mark's son asked to also mention that his name is Clint.

Santa Rosa Arts Center



The Santa Rosa, California community was devastated by wildfires in late 2017.  We support our friends at the Santa Rosa Arts Center and their Healing By Art: After the Fires effort to help the community. 

Best Buddies

 
Mark’s goddaughter and niece actively participates in the Best Buddies program as a buddy in Massachusetts. Mark’s sports idol, Tom Brady, also actively supports Best Buddies’ programs. We are pleased to contribute to Best Buddies’ efforts to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  

Leukemia & Lymphoma Foundation


Mark’s brother raises funds for LLS every year as he runs the Boston Marathon and holds other fundraisers to support LLS' work to fund blood cancer research. We are pleased to help support LLS.

American Red Cross


We support the Disaster Relief efforts of the American Red Cross.  They have done great work to help the victims of the California wildfires, Hurricane Harvey in the Houston area, and Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico.

Maui Food Bank




Mark’s family loves to visit and relax on the tropical paradise of Maui. We are pleased to support Shep Gordon’s efforts to give back to the community by feeding the hungry in Maui through the food bank.  

Alice Cooper's Solid Rock

 


Alice Cooper has been Mark’s musical idol ever since he snuck out of the house and took the train to the Worcester Centrum to see his comeback tour in 1986. We are proud to support Alice and Sheryl Cooper’s Solid Rock Foundation which provides music, art and theater programs to keep teens in the Phoenix, Arizona area with a supportive and safe environment to explore their creative side. 

Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund

Two of Mark’s heavy metal music idols, Ronnie James Dio and Lemmy Kilmister, tragically died of cancer. We proudly support the Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund which provides grants to cancer research programs.
