​Since it's creation in 2009, the Ron Darling Foundation has expanded its mission from working solely finding a cure for diabetes, to also helping those who are in need in local communities around the tri-state area. In doing so, we adhere to our motto "Real Money to Real People with Real Needs." In the past few years, the Ron Darling Foundation has worked in collaboration with various charitable groups and organizations to turn our mission into reality.

Ron Darling Foundation contributes to the following

Darling spends most of his time getting to know the minor league players.  It gives Darling a better picture on their games and how much they improve over the course of the year.

Darling is excited to see the younger guys play because you never want to see them fail and he thinks, "the true fans want to see these players to do well and be ready when they come."

So, are you ready for the 2014 New York Mets season?  As quoted from an article by the NY Post with Darling, the Mets are moving in such a positive direction that Darling is excited to call the games and watch the guys mature.

In the upcoming weeks we will have some photos from Port St. Lucie and the Spring Training 2014, with the NY Mets.

Hurricane Sandy Victims 2013-2014

On February 12, 2013, the Ron Darling Foundation donated $15,000 in Bob's Discount Furniture gift certificates.  The gift certificates went to families that had been severely affected by Hurricane Sandy.  The Foundation raised this money back in December, when it held it's 3rd Annual Texas Hold'em and Casino Night at Leonard's of Great Neck in Long Island, NY.  Bob's Discount Furniture subsequently matched this amount, bringing the total to $30,000.  The gift certificate money was dispensed amongst ten families - five in Staten Island and five in the Rockaways - all of which were impacted by the devastated storm.
