The Center for The Jacquie Hirsch For A.L.L. Foundation History
In the summer of 2012 a brilliant new idea was proposed! This idea would radically transform and improve the productivity, impact, and assistance capabilities of our entire organization.
Up until this point, the Foundation had been formed and operating out of two locations, the Hirsch’s home office and the Greater Buffalo Gymnastics & Fitness Center, the Hirsch family business. Although this system proved to be extremely successful, thinking outside of the box and thinking of the Foundation’s long term commitment always remained in the forefront.
What if there was a way for the Foundation to have its own facility? Its own magical place? Its own home? And then, the planning and the fun began! The next year was dedicated to blueprints, designs, layouts, permits, construction teams, and estimating in order to make this next milestone a reality.
On Friday, August 23, 2013 at 7:00am construction started on The Center For The Jacquie Hirsch Foundation! This new comprehensive “home” is to establish longevity in the community and affirm the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to patient support, events, research, and awareness. On September 6, 2014 the Foundation hosted the Grand Opening of the Center For The Jacquie Hirsch For A.L.L. Foundation, located proudly at 1641 North French Rd. in Getzville, NY.
We are extremely proud of all that has been accomplished in Jacquie’s memory. Moreover, it is our honor to continue the fight where she left off by setting in stone for future generations Jacquie’s name and legacy. It is thanks to all of you, our believers, that we have been able to reach this incredible milestone and will remain a part of the community for years to come.
The Center for The Jacquie Hirsch For A.L.L. Foundation Construction
The summer of 2014 marked the end a of a nearly 2-year journey as construction was completed on our Center for The Jacquie Hirsch For A.L.L. Foundation! This new “home” was a long time in the making and we are very proud and honored to have completed this major milestone.
Much like our organization, this particular initiative started out with a small group of dedicated, hard-working people with an idea committed to making a positive impact in Jacquie’s memory.
Although this building process was long and painstaking, it was certainly worthwhile to ensure the perfect mix of colors, furniture, tile, lighting, and more because this longstanding building is here to honor Jacquie and her dreams. For generations to come, we will be able to expand our reach in helping other patients and families, as well as increase the research funding that is already producing results. This facility will also aid us in tapping into new sources of community support.
Your support has and will continue to mean the world to us. We could not have accomplished such a landmark moment without all of your love and support.
