ADKF was proud to be a sponsor of Project MEND’s Toast of the Town honoring the Late Bexar County Commissioner, Paul Elizondo. The annual event honors a community member or agency dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities. This year, the signature event was held Saturday, September 28, 2019, at The Tobin Center, H-E-B Performance Hall. The Late Commissioner was a firm believer in Project MEND’s mission and instrumental in securing funding from Bexar County for the construction of their new state-of-the-art location in San Antonio. Through Paul’s legacy and his belief in universal mobility, Project MEND will continue providing its crucial services to individuals in need. Project MEND provides compassionate solutions to life’s unexpected health challenges. Through their programming, they provide refurbished medical equipment to individuals living with disabilities and life-altering illness, allowing for the greatest chance at rehabilitation or better management of a diagnoses. Senator Leticia Van de Putte guided us through the night as Mistress of Ceremonies. The event featured cocktails, dinner, and live music! ADKF’s Managing Partner Scott Kopecky, and his wife Lisa, COO Joe Hernandez, Audit Senior Manager and Project MEND Board Member Paul Wobser and his wife Hayley, Tax Manager Kelly Boswell and her husband Joe, and Marketing and Communications Specialist Angela Jacquez, were in attendance and enjoyed good food, entertainment, and conversation. There was also a silent auction and raffle for great prizes, to raise funds for Project MEND. ADKF supports numerous non-profits in our community by sponsoring charitable events and volunteering our time to further their cause. During 2019 we have supported San Antonio’s Light the Night, Alamo Area’s Partners for Animal Welfare (AAPAW,) United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County, and the San Antonio CPA Society, to name a few. Our partners and managers also sit on numerous boards and support our local communities of San Antonio, New Braunfels, and Boerne.
