VIDEO: Just Like Me - The Taylor Family Foundation
ABC7's Cheryl Jennings takes us through The Taylor Family Foundation's 25 years and introduces us to some courageous and inspiring people who are changing the lives of those in need.
The Tayor Family Foundation
For 25 years, The Taylor Family Foundation has helped children and families facing chronic medical, developmental, and emotional challenges. Part of that journey has been beautiful Camp Arroyo, a safe haven for these kids to find comfort by being with others just like them.
Some of those kids sang along to Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" during the Taylor Family Foundation's "Day in the Park" event.
ABC7 News Anchor Cheryl Jennings and Meteorologist Mike Nicco helped lead the silent and live auctions.
Hundreds of donors enjoyed food and wine from Livermore Valley wineries and restaurants.
ABC7 has profiled the camp's mission extensively. They've enabled about 3,000 special needs youngsters and children facing serious illnesses attend Camp Arroyo every year.

And all of that is thanks to founder Elaine Taylor and her late husband Barry.
"And every time the stories are told," Elaine said. "You've seen, look at all the new people who didn't know a thing about us a month ago."
ABC7 is a long-time and proud sponsor of "Day in the Park."
