Register today for our 8th annual “Making a Difference in May” on May 9, 2014 to be held at the Virginia War Memorial!
The Tad DuPriest Foundation is comprised of a fifteen member Board of Directors with an Associate Board of over 40 members. The foundation began in 2006 with a group of close friends who wanted to commemorate the loss of their dear friend, Tad DuPriest, who lost his life through a tragic car accident at the young age of 19. Board and associate board members share the common mission of giving back to the community in Tad’s name. Through our annual fundraising event in May, to several smaller fundraising events and awareness efforts, we have been fortunate to donate close to $600,000 to ASK over the last seven years.
Tad had many special gifts, including his athletic talent, his love for children, and most of all, his ability to make people laugh. Tad was someone who would have your stomach hurting from laughing within the first two minutes of meeting him. Two complete strangers who knew Tad have one commonality…. being able to laugh about their experiences with this unique individual.
Tad left this world at the young age of 19 years old, but his spirit lives on with everyone who knew him.
The Foundation has selected ASK as the beneficiaries of its efforts because of Tad’s love for children and his passion around helping people in need. Our goal is to do exactly what Tad wants us to do – raise money for kids in need and have as much fun as possible while doing it.
Tad DuPriest Foundation Board Members: Jimmy Baber, Joe Brockman, Doug Ix, Jody Parker, Rob Morris, Rand DuPriest, James Parker, Courtney Gilmer, Amber Riley, Cameron Wick, Bentley Keso, Lisa O’Mara, Miles Clarkson and Thad Gilmer
