“My husband Darren and I have been Program managers with CKE for just about 2 years now and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences we have ever been a part of. We have met some absolutely beautiful children and we look forward to seeing them at least once a year, if not more. Working with organizations such as NAAF, NHF, NEDF and CFMRF, to name a few, has been so much fun and the children are a BLAST. It is so rewarding to have a child come to our event that has not been separated from their parents and by the end of the day, not wanting to leave. We have developed wonderful relationships with clients, parents and children that we wouldn’t trade for anything. ”
