Silent Knightss Nonprofit Corporation was established in June of 2017, and its 501(c)(3) Approval came in July of 2017. In initial efforts, legal professionals wanted an estimated $2,000 and cautioned that the process would take 9 months. Driven by emotion and passion, Silent Knightss was founded on a self funded $700.00 & a self effort that took 4 months.
Inspiration & Cause
The Silent Knightss inaugural event was a Morris Hills Memorial Alumni Reunion. Proceeds from the event created a $4,000 scholarship awarded to a Morris Hills 2018 senior. The scholarship applicantion results were emotionally staggering, and the decision making process was crushingly difficult. We picked one, but all the applications from teenagers experiencing early loss, jaw dropped our expectations. Inspired by the applications received and their commonality with our first event's story, proceeds of this event will always be dedicating to a cause that has hit our hearts and souls: Families affected by the early loss of a parent or child.
After beating the odds against us, we are so proud to now celebrate each year's anniversary. Our goal with this event is to promote our mission and spread the word of what we do, and will always do it Silent Knightss style! Have fun, make the moment count, and do so while providing a charitable result!.
