Recipe for compassion

Add a dash of passion, a spoonful of devotion, and a cup of love to a pound of needs, a scoop of reasons, and a bowlful of compassion and you have the foundational ingredients for Hotties 4 Humanity. The “sugar, spice and everything nice” mantra works perfectly for the founders of this unbelievable non-profit organization. “Giving back while having fun” is what they are all about.

Karen Ridge and Jen Trevithick of Hotties 4 Humanity noticed that our society had a missing link, “giving back to our community”.  This used to be extremely prevalent in years past but with the age of technology and the forever fast paced locomotion of our society, the idea of having time to help those in need around us has fallen by the way side. Karen and Jen thought it essential for this to change. Therefore, a strong grass routes organization was formed: Hotties 4 Humanity.

Hotties 4 Humanity is devoted to helping one local charity per month. This is our community and they want to support it!  They are a non-profit that works extremely hard to make an impact and help preserve, enhance or just aid those that they are raising funds for. They are impassioned and driven by the needs of others but they are not alone.

Each month, as charitable causes apply to H4H for support, many people behind the scenes are working to help ensure that the event, held the Third Tuesday of every month at Pescatore’s Italian Restaurant in Chadds Ford, goes off with out a hitch.

Those involved are the loved ones of the charity, the owner of Pescatores - Andy Varriale, Manager, Denny Glick and their wonderful staff and all the local community businesses.

Just like a perfect recipe, each ingredient is a must for perfection. Without all of these components each phase of orchestrating every event would be challenging. The loved ones help tremendously promoting and advertising to ensure that the communities are aware of the event and that there is a strong force attending to show their support. Andy, Denny and their devoted staff work feverishly preparing the meal that they generously donate every month, serving the beverages and maintaining a magnificent environment.  The local businesses donate remarkable gifts to ensure that the winners leave surprised and delighted. Hotties 4 Humanity reciprocates by supporting the local businesses who support them by promoting them and utilizing their services.  Combined, H4H has the perfect elements to ensure the perfect outcome!

Some of the charities they have promoted in the past year include:

Team Josh - Organ & Tissue Donor Program

Praying for Weston - Weston Keeton and his expenses for a heart and lung transplant

Power of Pink - Supports free mammograms for women

Horizon House - Helping the homeless, those with disabilities and addictions

Interfaith Housing - Helps prevent homelessness among single working parents
