FOR YOUNG HEARTS
Bobbo's Fund for Young Hearts is a 501(c) (3) Public Charity established in the memory of Robert "Bobbo" Regalado.
Robby died suddenly from cardiac arrest due to undiagnosed Hypertophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) or Enlarged Heart when he was only 15 years old.
Our mission is to raise awareness and combat this silent killer. We want to eliminate these preventable deaths by funding heart screenings and donating portable AED's to local schools and youth sport organizations.
Bank account for Bobbo's Fund for Young Hearts is set up at Bridgeview Bank located at 80th and Harlem in Bridgeview, IL.
It's not too late to donate. You can still donate by sending your check payable to Bobbo's Fund for Young Hearts to Laura Regalado at 7007 W. 73rd Place; Nottingham Park, IL 60638.
As of 9-20-11, we are a 501(c) (3) Public Charity. All donations are tax deductibe.
For more information contact us at email@example.com or call 630/888-9172.
Bobbo's Fund donated an AED to two local organizations last year.
The first donation was a combo donation to Boy Scout Troop 683 and Burbank Manor Presbyterian Church and the second donation was to the Burbank Girls Fast Pitch League. If you know of an organization that is in need of an AED, please have them contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will put them on our list for next year.
Please remember to support our Annual Bobbo's Walk held on Mother's Day each year. This is our main fundraiser. The more money we bring in at the walk, the more AED's we can donate!!!!!
We are in the planning stages of our first Candlelight Bowl. Stay tuned for more information. We have some great raffle prizes courtesy of HH Gregg in Burbank and there will be Split the Pot tickets for sale.
