Calendar 2015 was a rewarding and challenging year for the Bob Perks Fund. While we helped more cancer patients and funded more applications than ever before, we also allocated fewer dollars because early in the year, we were forced to reduce the maximum per application from $1,000 to $750. This was a tough decision for our Board but we were correct in predicting this would be necessary to balance our budget in 2015. We would rather say yes to everyone at a lower amount, than say no to applicants toward the end of the year when donated funds have been totally expended. Eventually, we hope to return to our original allocation amount but this is a challenging goal since the number of applicants continues to increase every year.

HISTORY AND MISSION The Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund was established in 2006 in memory of Bob Perks, a State College native, who passed away in 2005 after a long battle with melanoma. A four-year Penn State baseball player and a founding member of the local Coaches vs Cancer® of Penn State, Bob died at age 42, leaving behind his wife Doreen and two very young children. To fulfill Bob’s commitment to those battling cancer, Doreen and Bob’s family, friends, and colleagues established the Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund. For those who receive this support while undergoing cancer treatment, it is a lifeline to pay for many of their most basic living expenses including rent, utilities, food, car insurance, gas for cancer treatment travel and more. A recent Huntingdon County recipient said “Never in a million years did I think I would be in a situation where I was fighting for my life but here it is. The unexpected costs of fighting cancer are astronomical. My fiancé tells me that I have one job – fight for my life and survive this. As the bills pile up, this is hard to do but with your help, my stress level is much lower.” Many local families fighting cancer are faced with the decision to heat their homes or put food on their tables. The emotional pressure of unpaid bills and the tough decisions about how to care for themselves and their families is overwhelming and often stands in the way of focusing on their healthcare. This is where the Bob Perks Fund steps in, working to reduce the burden of unpaid bills so cancer patients can focus on their treatment and recovery.

Early in 2016, our Assistant Director Jen Finkle decided to step down to have more time with her family. Although we were very disappointed to lose her, we are grateful for her hard work and commitment to the Bob Perks Fund for the past 5 years. Having decided to split Jen’s job into two new positions, we were happy to welcome Sue Patterson as Program Coordinator and Eric McGinnis as Development Coordinator. Thank you to all the corporations, foundations, businesses, community organizations, and individual donors who are helping us to achieve our mission. Thank you for our wonderful volunteers who help keep this valuable organization running smoothly.

Since 2006, the Bob Perks Fund’s history of growth and development to fulfill its mission has been truly remarkable, having raised and distributed more than ONE MILLION DOLLARS to cancer patients from Blair, Centre, Clearfield, and Huntingdon Counties. Every one of those dollars was donated by individuals, families, community organizations, businesses, local foundations, Bob Perks Fund special events, and other events held on our behalf. In those 10 years, the Bob Perks Fund has never denied funding to an eligible applicant. To celebrate this major accomplishment, the Bob Perks Fund held its “Thanks a Million” gala in September at Toftrees to honor all of its donors and supporters who made it possible to provide assistance and change the lives of thousands of local cancer patients. 1

SERVICE, GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT IN 2015 Last year, the Bob Perks Fund processed and funded 295 patient applications, up from 265 in 2014. Eligible applicants are referred by members of their cancer treatment team. The majority of 2015 referrals were received from healthcare professionals at UPMC Altoona and Breast Cancer and Women’s Health Institute (Blair), Mount Nittany Medical Center, Geisinger and Cancer Care Partnership (Centre), Nathaniel Yingling Cancer Center (Clearfield) and Home Nursing Agency (Huntingdon). The breakdown of applications processed by residence in our four-county area included: 73 Blair County 70 Centre County

97 Clearfield County 55 Huntingdon County

The Bob Perks Fund’s ability to assist local cancer patients is dependent upon successful, collaborative relationships with our referral sources. They are truly our partners in service to cancer patients and we thank them for their efforts that contribute to our success. The importance of the Bob Perks Fund in the lives of local cancer patients is reflected in testimonials from healthcare professionals that work hand in hand with the Bob Perks Fund:

"The Cancer Program at Mount Nittany is a proud partner and beneficiary of the Bob Perks Fund. Thanks to their efforts, people facing cancer in our community have a resource that is unheard of in other places. Doreen's vision to have funds available to help support patients experiencing financial hardship as a result of their diagnosis has made it possible for us to mitigate some of the barriers that cancer presents. I have worked with this remarkable organization since its inception, and serving on their Allocations Committee, I can speak firsthand to their good work. I am a proud supporter of this wonderful group." – Aileen Galley, Director, Penn State Cancer Institute Support for Bob Perks Fund recipients falls into four major categories: rent and utilities, food and gas gift cards, automotive, and medical expenses. In 2015, we funded 100% of the eligible expenses presented through 295 patient applications and distributed more than $166,000 to meet these need. The maximum per patient application was $750 and a number of cancer patients received assistance two or more times during the year.

“It wasn’t until I started working closely with our oncology patients that I realized the financial burden and emotional stress they endure through their ongoing cancer treatment. I feel our patients’ only focus should be on their health and wellbeing. When I meet with our patients and explain how the Bob Perks Fund works, they are overwhelmed with disbelief that such a program exists. No patient should have to worry about how they are getting to their next doctor’s appointment or keeping their heat and lights on. Knowing we can turn to the Bob Perks Fund for assistance is such a blessing to our patients. The Bob Perks Fund is truly a valuable asset to the community, and with help and local support, it can continue on. I am truly grateful to be a part of such a wonderful program that can bring such peace to our patients.” – Jeannie Nagle, Financial Counselor, UPMC Altoona

In 2016, the Bob Perks Fund will continue its efforts to secure new funding sources with the hope of meeting the needs of an everincreasing number of eligible cancer patients.

With the majority of cancer patient dollars raised in Centre County, Executive Director Norma Keller is making every effort to increase our fundraising capability in Blair, Clearfield, and Huntingdon Counties. The following paragraphs report some of that growing success. Blair County In Blair County, we continued to see a major increase in patient referrals. To broaden our base of support, we joined the Blair County Chamber and established a Blair County Advisory Group with representatives from Breast Cancer & Women’s Health Institute, DelGrosso Foods, Griffith Family Foundation, South Hills Business School, UPMC Altoona Foundation and UPMC Altoona. The work of this resourceful group led to a comprehensive article in the Altoona Mirror, with interviews of recipients and referral sources, as well as the Griffith Family Foundation’s featuring the Bob Perks Fund in two of its televised programs. Altoona-based Sheetz, Inc. continued its 10year history of donating $15,000 in complementary gas cards to be used by cancer patients traveling for treatments. Major support was also received through our partnership with UPMC Altoona Foundation, UPMC Health Plan and UPMC Altoona. Blair County special event sponsors included Charla Brumbaugh’s “[email protected],” and Tyronebased Breast Cancer & Women’s Health Institute, Albemarle Corporation, Logan Valley Oil, and Thrivent Financial, where we were recently accepted as a “Donor Choice” participant. Clearfield County The Bob Perks Fund greatly appreciates Bob Johnson of Johnson Subaru in DuBois and his staff for once again raising $10,545 through their 2nd annual “Share the Love” event. These funds will have a direct impact on cancer patients across Clearfield County, as will the $1,000 grant from the Clearfield County Charitable Foundation and the proceeds from Jennifer Lanich’s “Mikey’s Old School Ride,” a rally honoring her late husband.

Our greatest number of cancer patient applications are from Clearfield County, so if you know potential donors from Clearfield County communities, please tell them about the Bob Perks Fund. Centre County We are grateful for the long-term, unique partnership that the Bob Perks Fund enjoys with Coaches vs Cancer® of Penn State and the American Cancer Society of Centre County. Last year, we received $35,000 and are exceedingly thankful for the generous CVC sponsors, donors, and volunteers that made this possible. We thank all of our Special Event Sponsors listed in the following pages as well as Kish Bank, Minitab, Inc., the State College Spikes for their “Bob Perks Night,” the annual Ken Tressler Family Pig Roast, which has raised $8,000 in 3 years, 13-year old Emilie Brennan for an awesome “Millie’s Lemonade Stand,” and Supelco Employees for their second “Supelco Walk.” Local foundations continued to be a major source of support with $10,000 received from Mount Nittany Health, and $1,000 from the Bellefonte Masonic Lodge #268 Carl Fisher Memorial Trust. Many donors supported the Bob Perks Fund through our annual holiday campaign and through Centre Foundation’s CENTRE GIVES, a 36-hour online giving event. Through Centre Gives, the Bob Perks Fund raised $12,500, and our dear friends, Linda and Blake Gall, “double matched” the proportional match awarded by Centre Foundation. In 2015, the Bob Perks Fund joined the Chamber Business & Industry (CBICC) and the Centre County Council for Human Services to extend our reach. Huntingdon County The Bob Perks Fund enjoyed its second year as an Affiliate Member of Huntingdon County United Way and in March 2016, became full “Partner Agency.” We are thankful to many community members who supported the Bob Perks Fund by designating contributions through the past two United Way campaigns. Bob Perks Fund volunteers headed by Rickey Himes of Huntingdon held several successful events, raising more than $10,000 to support their neighbors battling cancer. The Mt. Union American Legion donated $1,500 and held a “Cash Party” and the Mt. Union High School donated the use of their space to hold a heartfelt “remembrance event” honoring cancer survivors, those currently battling cancer, and those who lost their lives to cancer. For the second year, we were able to count on US Silica of Mapleton Depot to provide a major sponsorship at our Tailgate Party event. Hats off to all those in Huntingdon County who are working so hard to help their neighbors battling cancer.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS & NEW FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES Strategic Partners The Bob Perks Fund is so fortunate to have the major and continuing support of five Strategic Partners. Without their unyielding devotion to our work, our efforts to help struggling cancer patients would be severely diminished. Our heartfelt thanks goes to Coaches vs Cancer® of Penn State, American Cancer Society, Mount Nittany Heath, Sheetz, Inc. and UPMC Altoona.

FUNDRAISING AND BOB PERKS FUND SPECIAL EVENTS In 2015, with the sponsorship of local oil companies “giving back” to their communities, we enjoyed a successful Rock the 80’s Concert, as well as our “Thanks a Million” celebration, and Tailgate Party. Our Holiday Campaign was especially successful thanks to Robin and Ben Heim and Linda and Blake Gall, who provided matching funds on the first $10,000 donated. Always looking for new and fun ways to raise money in support of our mission, we are excited to announce our first ever “Summer Slam.” This family-oriented 3v3 Basketball Tournament being held in June 2016 at the State College YMCA, and is open to teams of all ages, from all corners of Central Pennsylvania.

“WE COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU” Every Bob Perks Fund effort to support local cancer patients is largely dependent upon the generosity, creativity, hard work, and good will of our volunteers and supporters. We take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you who are listed below who make our successes possible and to the many others who provide assistance through Coaches vs Cancer® of Penn State and other events which support the Bob Perks Fund.

Special Event and Community Volunteers

Since 75% of the funds distributed to cancer patients are generated in Centre County, we continue to increase awareness of our programs in Blair, Clearfield, and Huntingdon Counties to broaden our funding base. In order to do this, we rely heavily on print and social media and are thankful to those who help us accomplish this objective: Rowland Creative, Barash Media, Forever Broadcasting, Griffith Family Foundation, the Altoona Mirror, Centre County Gazette, Centre Daily Times, Huntingdon Daily News, Seven Mountains Media, Tyrone Daily Herald, The Progress, Town & Gown, and other media resources.

Our ability to assist local cancer patients is totally dependent on our ability to raise local dollars……..so if you want to share a unique fundraising idea, contact Executive Director Norma Keller at [email protected] 7
