Dear Eric,


As the 2015 honoree, please accept our heartfelt gratitude for your donation to the Muscular Dystrophy Association for the Berks County Black and Blue Ball held at Classic Harley-Davidson. Because of your support of MDA, Tompkins VIST Bank and Tompkins Insurance along with you was able to raise $10,750, allowing 13 children to attend camp for an entire week in 2016. This year, the event raised a record breaking $280,000! We couldn’t have accomplished that astonishing amount without your support. The funds raised to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association will remain local & help those in our community.


Your generosity to help MD will allow them to continue to invest in their critical mission: to save and improve lives of people fighting muscle disease as they find treatments and cures, support families, and rally communities. Among the vital services your contribution to MDA buys are: diagnostic and follow-up care at MDA’s hospital-affiliated clinic at Good Shepherd Hospital, assistance with the repair of wheelchairs and durable medical equipment, physical, occupational and respiratory therapy consultations, educational seminars, and patient advocacy. Other services provided by the Association that makes life better for families MDA serves include support groups, loan closets, and MDA’s summer camp program for children.


The words thank you do not convey strongly enough how much we appreciate your support and compassion. Your efforts exemplify the importance behind helping your fellow neighbors. Thanks again for your support of the Association’s life-changing programs.
