Exquisite 16-Month Special Edition Calendar from Hope For Youth Foundation

October 13, 2014 (All day) - February 28, 2015 (All day)

Jim Witt, a former Earth Science teacher, loves kids. In 1986, as the WHUD 100.7 weather forecaster, he created a calendar with long-range forecasts and photos of the Hudson Valley.  Jim knew Sheila Petersen, Friends of Karen's founder.  He co-founded the Hope For Youth Foundation "just to raise money for children who've been dealt a lousy hand in life," as Jim puts it.  Friends of Karen became the first charity on their list.
