By Max J. Yurenda, CEO/Executive Director, Double H Ranch
As we celebrate a significant milestone in our history, we proudly recognize the community for supporting the Double H Ranch for 20 years. Charley Wood shared a vision with Paul Newman and their dream became a reality in 1992. Making Dreams a Reality for children and their families dealing with life-threatening illnesses captures the essence of our business. Ensuring that we provide the highest quality of service is paramount. As a leading not-for-profit in our community, we strive to meet or exceed the goals of our organization and we devote our resources and energies towards our inspirational kids. Providing life-changing experiences in a magical environment is an opportunity for bringing joy into the lives of thousands of children and family members each year. The key ingredients to our success include gifted staff and volunteers, our competent and compassionate medical team, dedicated Board leadership and the generosity of our community.
The Double H Ranch provides specialized year-round services that combine creativity, challenge, success and FUN. As a member of the SeriousFun Children’s Network, we are part of the largest global family of camps that are privileged to impact the lives of children dealing with life-threatening illnesses – all FREE of charge to our campers and their families.
The children that have touched our lives have reminded us of many important realities. Life is a gift that is filled with opportunities, challenges, constant change and dreams. Our team will always stay focused on what is best for our kids and we will work tirelessly to preserve and expand the legacy of our founders. We have ambitious goals ahead of us and building sustainability into the future is a priority for our kids and community. Every gift of support is important and appreciated!
Palio is participating in the Social Madness Challenge and has chosen Double H as the not-for-profit they will donate the winnings if they are one of the 3 national champions. Social Madness is corporate social media challenge that began June 1. The Business Review, and parent company American City Business Journals, launched the challenge to identify companies with the best social media chops. Social Madness measures the growth of each participating company’s presence across LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Companies in 43 cities across the United States have signed up to compete in a national March Madness-like bracketed tournament measuring social influence. It’s all about connections, likes, and followers!
