Clearstory Proudly Supports PEERS Network Gala in Support of Challenged Athletes Foundation
PEERS Network was established “to bring entrepreneurs and executives from across a variety of industries together with a common goal: to give back.” Since then, the organization’s members have been recognized for their dedication, support and partnership with charitable causes.
Each year they select an outstanding local nonprofit to benefit from their annual PEERS Gala – a black tie evening that brings together industry leaders and social philanthropists to raise funds for a deserving non-profit. For their 5th Annual PEERS Gala, they partnered with the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF), which supports athletes with physical disabilities across the country.
During the exclusive evening at the private La Jolla Farms residence of Steve and Lisa Altman, guests enjoyed haute cuisine, lively entertainment, a silent and live auction, and heard inspirational stories of perseverance from the challenged athletes served by CAF.
Each of these atheletes have stories of challenge and triumph, and the support of loved ones and of organizations like CAF.
Clearstory is helping these athletes and the organization that supports by providing a silent auction gift of the design and production of a high-end custom photo books. The funds raised will be used to finance adaptive sports equipment, running prosthetics, coaching, mentoring and competition expenses for challenged athletes of all ages and abilities. These are items typically not covered by insurance and make a significant impact on someone’s life by enabling them to have independence through sports and physical fitness.
It is the mission of the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF) to provide opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. CAF believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life.
Clearstory believes in supporting the community and the organizations like CAF that do so much to enhance the lives of the people around us.
