Compassion, Food and Fun
Chris Comstock Legacy
A fundraiser to benefit the Bedford Community Foundation Heart of Hope helping children and young adults in Bedford Township dealing with catastrophic illnesses to pay medical expenses.
Welcome to Compassion, Food & Fun. We began this event began in 2014 in memory of Christopher Comstock. Chris was a person who loved his friends, family and lived each moment to the its fullest. Chris loved sports, music, tasty food and spending time with loved ones. As a child, Chris and his family received support from the Bedford community as he fought through his catastrophic illness. The Comstock family, friends and community honors Chris's memory and his compassion for others by organizing this event to raise money for the BCF Heart of Hope Fund (which helps children and young adults (ages 0-35 y/o) in Bedford township dealing with catastrophic illnesses pay for medical expenses.
We have also raised money for other Bedford organizations in conjunction with the Heart of Hope as we saw the need.
We are all volunteers and all the money raised stays in Bedford Township.
Since 2014 the Heart of Hope has given out many grants to many grateful families. The money we make during this fundraiser is being used! The need continues!
