The R.J. Leonard Foundation: What We Do
We educate, initiate careers, and personally mentor young adults who are aging out of the foster care system; we empower them to succeed, free of government assistance for the rest of their lives.
The R.J. Leonard Foundation team is thankful that local "celebrities" Marc Farzetta of CBS Philly, Jennifer Eckfield of The Learning Experience, and Mike Sielski of the Inquirer and Daily News were able to participate in our Celebrity Bartender event at The Other Side, located at Chambers Bistro & Bar in Doylestown, Pennsylvania on August 29, 2018 from 5:30PM to 8:30PM.
Chambers 19 donated 20% of sales to support our mission to educate, initiate careers, and mentor young adults as they age out of the foster care system, empowering them to be free of government assistance for the rest of their lives.” Multiple baskets were up for raffle along with a 50/50.

With the generosity of the local community we have raised over $2,000, which does not include the donation from the Chambers 19 Bistro and Bar family. We look forward to sharing the final total with our supporters and donors. This contribution will be used to provide our Fellows with Mentors, educational scholarships, transportation scholarships, and social and cultural enrichment opportunities.
