The PF Foundation is supported by D.F. Pray General Contractors. We had been donating to various charities for many years, when one of our own, Ron Carr, was struck with Leukemia. The PF Foundation was created in Ron’s memory and continues with him in mind as we raise funds in support of finding a cure. The “419” Sail is a reminder of Ron and his passion for sailing.

The mission of The PF Foundation (PFF) continues in its endeavors to fund research to help eradicate Leukemia and Lymphoma, Neuroblastoma, Pancreatic Cancer, and fund research for Southcoast Health.
