In 2016 Danny’s Fund was created in memory of a loving son and brother who lost his battle to addiction and is a component fund of the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County. Contributions raised from this event will be directed towards purposes and causes that could help change the course of addiction in Anne Arundel County.
The purpose of Danny’s Fund is to provide financial assistance to those struggling with substance abuse disorder. Recipients are entities focused on helping others to make the necessary life changes towards a new life of recovery and sobriety. A recent example of a contribution made from Danny’s Fund, was a gift made to The Light House Bistro in Annapolis. The Bistro helps to provide a career path and jobs to those willing to study and work hard to change their lives. If you stop by The Bistro, you will see “Danny’s chair” facing the kitchen, with the inscription “In loving memory, Chef Daniel” on the back.
