Support the Simon’s Fund Event

Happy Holiday Season to the MGCA Family:

MGCA has four missions:

  • Business Networking
  • Community Awareness
  • Social
  • Local Fund Raising

MGCA has donated over $150,000 to Upper Dublin and area charities including Everybody’s Playground, Wylie’s Day, The Upper Dublin Library, the Upper Dublin Junior Athletic Association (UDJAA), Upper Dublin Baseball and Golden Generals Baseball, and many others.  The common denominator is that these groups are based and operate locally in the Upper Dublin area.  Further, MGCA encourages its membership to get involved and support these groups either by donating your time or by sponsoring events and contributing.

For 2017, one of the causes MGCA is supporting is Simon’s Fund. If you have attended a recent meeting, you have met and seen a presentation by Jill Florin, the Cause Marketing Director for Simon’s Fund and by Darrel Sudman, Simon’s father and one of the founders of the fund.  More information on Simon’s Fund and their mission can be found at

Tragically, every year children die suddenly from sudden cardiac arrest.   These losses may be prevented by a simple ECG test which can identify something called “long QT syndrome”as well as other genetic heart defects.    Simon’s Fund is a nonprofit organization which sets up free screenings to check  children’s hearts and in turn, to potentially save lives.  To date, Simon’s Fund has screened over 14,000 kids and have changed over 100 lives, including one Upper Dublin Student.

This is not without a cost as each screening event costs $10,000. 

On February 10th, 2017, there will be a fundraiser at Upper Dublin High School with a goal of raising $10,000 to fully fund a local screening event.  This fundraiser is organized by an Upper Dublin student.

MGCA is asking for your help to make this event a huge success.  Please see the information below for details on the different sponsorship levels. The Deadline for sponsorships is Dec 31st, 2016. 

By being a sponsor for a great nonprofit there are benefits:

  • 91% of consumers are likely to switch companies or brands to one associated with a good cause
  • 61% of consumers are willing to try something new because of its association with a good cause
  • 50% of consumers say that they will be willing to pay more for goods and services to companies that give back.
  • Local recognition
