My Former Foundation
In June of 2017, I created the Burke Events Foundation with a mission to provide family friendly entertainment and events to raise money for organizations and charities that communities care about. I kicked off the start of this foundation with the 1st annual Burke Color Run and was shocked to have over 300 registrants. I decided from there to create the show Burke's Got Talent to allow those a chance to display their talent to their community and compete in a friendly competition. After the success of these events, I received help from great members of our community to run the 2nd annual Burke Color Run, Burke's Got Talent, and 1st annual Glow the Night 5k.
Caring for Communities
Communites come together in many forms from an event, to support, to volunteer to give, or just to be with friends. I believe in the power of giving and volunteering. I have dedicated my time to serving in communities I believe in our people and change will come when there are people willing to work hard for that change. I have been caring for communities, volunteering, and giving back for the past 3 years. I believe that we are all one community and we can impact the lives of many through volunteering and giving back. The opportunities are countless and I would love to help you get involved.
