Welcome to the Scott Coopersmith Stroke Awareness Foundation!


Dear Friends, Family and Supporters:

On behalf of The Scott Coopersmith Stroke Awareness Foundation, I would like to personally thank you for your generosity and support. Your commitment to helping raise Stroke Awareness in our community is sincerely appreciated.

For the 4th year in a row, we managed to come together with a common goal, and we are proud to announce that we exceeded our annual fundraising goal!! As I said at the gala, we could not have done this without each and every one of you.

To those of you who came out and joined us at the Westin, I hope that you all had a wonderful evening and appreciate your support…I hope to see you next year on July 12th, 2014 for the 5th Annual Gala which is sure to be our biggest and best yet!

To those of you who sent in a monetary donation, I can’t begin to tell you how each and every penny makes such a huge difference in our fundraising goals, and thank you for your contribution!

Once again, our silent auction was a tremendous success!! Thank you to all of our product donators!

To Mr. Mark McEwen, our guest speaker, thank you for sharing your uplifting and inspiring story. Thank you for bringing your positive energy and spirit with you Saturday night! Thank you for your continued support of our cause! We were incredibly honored to have you with us and look forward to working with you in the future to continue to raise stroke awareness!

To our sponsors, thank you so very much for believing in our foundation and supporting our efforts in raising stroke awareness. We hope that you enjoyed your evening as our guests and hope that we can count on you again in future years!

Thank you to our Hero of the Year, the Orlando Stroke Club who has made it their mission to offer support to local stroke victims and their families! We look forward to working with you more closely in the future!

A HUGE Thank you to our amazing photographer, Jim Hobart, who helped us capture incredible moments throughout the evening of our guests! Your services and professionalism were greatly appreciated and we hope to work with you again in the future!

A special thank you to our guest of honor, Mr. Robert Pritchard, for being so brave and fighting with an amazing internal strength! Your story is uplifting and inspirational! You are a SURVIVOR and will go on to do remarkable things in your life! We hope that you continue to be a part of the Scott Coopersmith Stroke Awareness Foundation and part of our family!

It brings me so much joy to know that Scott's memory is living on, not only among his immediate family but within our extended family and community as well.

Thanks again for your generous support in our efforts to raise stroke awareness in Scott’s memory.

We look forward to planning another great event next year and are currently looking to build a Board of Directors for our Foundation. We are seeking responsible, motivated, passionate people talented in all fields of work to become a part of our team and help us to continue to raise stroke awareness in our community and beyond. If you are interested in becoming a part of our Board of Directors or a part of one of our committees, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
