Hercules Foundation Officially Partners with Fairfax Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 77
Like Sgt. Ryan “Hercules” Lindenbaum himself, the Hercules Foundation arrived in style. Welcoming more than 80 people to The Barns at Hamilton Station for our official kickoff party, we formally made our presence known in the greater Norther Virginia community.
As the rain came down outside, the love, laughter, and endless Ryan stories filled The Barns. Old friends and new clinked glasses while toasting the man we all admired, loved and respected; our hero, Ryan Lindenbaum. In attendance were Ryan’s family, friends, Fairfax County’s finest, our gracious sponsors and various members of the community.
Throughout the night there was one common theme, giving. Many folks in attendance had dedicated their time, energy and money to help make this Foundation what it is today and for that we are so grateful. The culmination of giving came when Brad Carruthers, President of the Fairfax Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 77, announced that his members would be partnering with our Foundation and donating $15,000 to further our mission. Up until this point, The Hercules Foundation has been what we believed to be a great idea in an effort to continue Ryan's legacy. With this contribution from Ryan’s brothers and sisters in blue, this idea we had called The Hercules Foundation will now become a realization.
For those that have supported us, both near and far, THANK YOU. Your contributions and belief in our cause drives us to carry on like Ryan would have by pushing forward and extending a helping hand.
Regards, Hercules Foundation
