The Eve Fenton Love-All Foundation is taking this opportunity to thank the entire New York community, tri-state area and beyond for our July 3, 2006 gala event at Ronald McDonald House. The outpouring of love and generosity from sponsors, governmental officials, special guests, FDNY Chief Howard Hill and Firefighter Jack Hayden, presenting gifts to children and young adults battling cancer was an extremely poignant moment. The great humanitarians sent a message that makes this world a better place for one and all.

The event commenced at 6 PM and ran on fast track until the conclusion. The children enjoyed a clown, a character actress and actor,a caricaturist, and Kathryn Kienke, renowned violinist, accompanied by three young violinists. Next came gourmet delicacies, gifts for all the "RMH" Children and a reading of two letters from our great US Senators, Charles Schumer and Hillary R. Clinton, which included best wishes from former President Bill Clinton and a letter from New York's greatest Mayor, Michael R. Bloomberg. These letters were read by read by Vicki Fenton, Foundation Acting CEO, President and Founder.

Thereafter, a birthday cake, desserts, commemorative baskets and decorations were enjoyed by the "RMH" children, with the song, "God Bless America." The song was delivered by Joel Landy with guitar; pianist Jerry Scott, and singer John Luke, with audience participation by the children waving USA flags, altogether singing this patriotic song.

In essence, this memorable evening was summed up by the uplifting spirit and gleam in the eyes of a five-year-old when he stated, "Please come back to us real soon! Vicki, I love you!"
