The 5th Annual Dick and Jody Memorial Golf Tournament

It’s pizza day!

Did you know that our annual golf tournament has a sponsor level called A Slice of Pizza? This level is a hole sponsorship which allows you to create a custom message for one of the golf course tee boxes. It’s a great way to get some advertising for your business or send a message of support to The Vilardo Foundation. Plus, each hole sponsor comes with a ticket to join the fun at the evening reception and auction. We still have some “slices of pizza”, other sponsor levels, and have opened a few more foursomes for the 5th Annual Memorial Tournament on May 4, 2020. This pizza day, take the opportunity to secure your spot. We hope to see you there!

Just 2 days until Giving Tuesday! Help us make a difference in the lives of families, like those at The Children's Inn at NIH.

This “place like home” was near and dear to Dick and Jody’s heart. Our continued support of The Children’s Inn is in effort to normalize the abnormal for families with children receiving treatment at The National Institute of Health for rare and undiagnosed diseases. Over the years our support has included, meal service, the dedication of an outdoor patio dining space, vegetable garden maintenance, and the support of grants for at-home activities. This year we provided funding to the young adults program for events such as baseball games, escape rooms, theater, and opportunities that otherwise would not be available to these patients and families.

We are honored to continue working with The Inn and are so thankful to YOU for making this possible. ❤️

Cornell Scholarship | vilardo-foundation

In a journal to her grandson, Louis, one of Jody's five 'Words of Wisdom' was "Always be learning". With this in mind, we created an endowed scholarship at Cornell University, Jody’s alma mater.

To be a Vilardo scholar, students will be: (a) Majoring in Hotel Administration (Jody’s major, and the field of work for Dick and Katy), and (b) Participating in the Cornell Traditions Program; a program which requires community service hours of the student either at the University or in the city of Ithaca, NY. This insures our scholars support The Vilardo Foundation's mission of giving back to the community.

Thank you for giving the gift of education. Please consider helping us fulfill this scholarship this Giving Tuesday!

https://www.vilardofoundation.org/cornell-scholarship

Education was very important to Jody and Dick Vilardo and is something The Dick and Jody Vilardo Foundation values very highly. Both Jody and Dick were supporters of University alumni and Jody was a proud member of the prestigious Cornell University Hotel Society. With Dick's ties to the hotel busin...

Camp Erin is the largest national bereavement program for youth grieving the death of someone close to them. This free, weekend‐long experience combines traditional, fun camp activities with grief education and emotional support. Without YOUR donations, CaringMatters quite simply would not be able to provide this opportunity.

The below video was created at camp in 2018, highlighting the importance of this experience for grieving children. Tune in to 4:57 to see Katy Vilardo speaking on behalf of The Vilardo Foundation.
