The Sammy Fund

Major Sponsors

      Quincy is a very caring community. We are blessed to have incredible support from friends, family and the community. Thousands of hours go into preparing for and carrying out the fall event. Organizers of the Sammy Fund events extend their deepest appreciation to all those who support this worthwhile cause. Businesses in the community give generously donations of food, silent auction items, and financial underwriting for our golf tournament. The fantastic success of our first ten events was only possible through the wonderful support of so many caring individuals.

      The generous nature of the Major Sponsors, along with the dedicated spirit of hundreds of volunteers, is a true testament to the outstanding quality of people in the Quincy area. We are so thankful for their trust in our cause and willingness to help the children in our community.

      The Sammy Fund is grateful to our loyal Major Sponsors!

Boston Marathon

Cindy Spake found a unique and generous way to help the Sammy Fund. In April of 2012 Cindy tackled grueling conditions of the Boston Marathon. This year's race became known as "The Baked Boston," with temperatures above 90 degrees. Cindy not only conquered the 26.2 mile course, but solicited generous donations from friends and family who sponsored her run. We're so proud of Cindy and grateful for her generous support!
