York Attends BELIEVE Bash

Our Chief Financial Officer, Kris Bracy, has served on the Board of BELIEVE – Stroke Recovery Foundation since it was started in 2020. Her friends, Jennifer and Michael Erwin, established the foundation after Michael suffered a stroke. Their goal was to help others who have experienced strokes navigate the financial and emotional challenges of their journeys back to independence.

Kris is happy to serve on the Board because it is clear to her that the support the foundation provides makes a real and meaningful difference in the lives of stroke survivors and their families. She also knows firsthand how impactful it is to have support when dealing with a personal or family health crisis.

The BELIEVE Bash, which was the foundation’s first fundraiser, raised more than $117,000. There were approximately 200 people in attendance and York was a proud sponsor. Guests bid on silent auction items and enjoyed food from PoshNosh Catering.
