FLOCers got a special treat in September 2009 as FLOC member, James Ruiz, organized a gathering at Avila’s El Ranchito Restaurant in Laguna Niguel to learn about the non-profit Kids Konnected. Executive Director, David Peters, shared the history and development of the organization that focuses on kids whose parents are suffering from the burden of Cancer. Several hundred dollars were raised for the organization at the event and several FLOCers signed up to attend their annual Oktoberfest Gala.
“Unfortunately in the cancer community the majority of the money is spent on research and on the patients themselves, as it should be, but as a result the kids fall through the cracks. That’s why Kids Konnected is here and at a grassroots level we can make a difference.” David Peters, Kids Konnected Executive Director
