About This Activity

Description:  The Abi Kattel Memorial Foundation is a charity not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization to support education & perform charity. It has partnered with other charitable organizations, YMCA, Florida Nepal Association, and St. Ann Place (a homeless left). The funds raised are used 100% for helping others.

This charity foundation is a spin off of a tragedy to the Kattel family when 22 year old Abi Kattel suddenly died. Your support to this organization in any shape or form will go a long way to the benefit of children and young adults in their learning life.

So far, the Foundation has awarded 9 college scholarships and sent 19 kids for day camps at YMCA; annually, it feeds 200+ homeless people & conducts two blood drives.
