Honoring The Ravitz Family Foundation with the 2021 Samuel Gee Award
After conversations with our honorees and other members of our community, we have decided not to gather in person on October 28th. This decision stems from concerns about the COVID-19 Delta variant, particularly for children who cannot yet be vaccinated.
In lieu of a live event, we will celebrate with a brief virtual experience in late October. We hope to celebrate together in-person this spring, when we can do so safely and comfortably.
Celebrate what life can be like once we have a cure: to eat without fear—a world Beyond Celiac. Funds raised through this event will benefit our strategic initiatives to accelerate treatments toward a cure for this serious genetic autoimmune disorder.
Please join us virtually to pay tribute to The Ravitz Family Foundation, recipient of the 2021 Beyond Celiac Samuel Gee Award and celebrate their achievements.
We will honor the Ravitz Family Foundation for their longstanding commitment to Beyond Celiac – dating back to 2005 – and their service to the region’s celiac disease and gluten-sensitive communities through their five-store chain of ShopRite supermarkets in southern New Jersey.
The Ravitz Family Foundation is a non-profit, 501c3, private foundation. Grants are issued by the foundation to organizations and causes whose requests for financial support best meet the “mission” Doris and Stanley Ravitz created in 1996 – to aid children and families in need.
Brett Ravitz, the current chairman of the Ravitz Family Foundation, is proud that the foundation continues to “touch the lives” of more people in the South Jersey area than ever before. With his family’s dedication to the community in mind, Brett communicates the foundation’s mission and activities to the company’s business partners. Having two daughters with celiac disease has led to his strong commitment to working with Beyond Celiac and the celiac disease community.
