The Paul Seiwert Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit established in 2008 in the memory of Paul Thomas Seiwert (12/20/98 - 3/21/08). This is a continuation of Paul's charitable spirit aiding other children afflicted with cancer, through philanthropic support. 

Paul dreamed of becoming a doctor, desiring to provide other children and their family's medical treatment with favorable health outcomes, while never losing hope to heal. The Paul Seiwert Foundation supports Paul's dream for his special friends to live cancer-free. Prceeds from the event support Advocate Children's Hospital in Park Ridge, and Paul's special friends within the community.
