April proved to be another month full of wonderful philanthropy for The Noblemen organization. The Chesapeake Noblemen really got the month off to a great start by delivering Easter baskets to children who are involved with Edmarc Hospice for Children. The Noblemen visited 14 different homes and succeeded in delivering some real joy, excitement and Easter goodies to some very sick children. Kudos to Dan Krapf of The Chesapeake Noblemen who really did a great job organizing this event. This was truly an AWESOME day!

   
 


The Noblemen were delighted to write a $500 check to the "Tidewater Friends of the Elderly" organization so that they could purchase Easter baskets for the many needy children whose families they assist! Thanks F.o.t.E. for everything that you do!
 
   
 
The Noblemen were also very pleased to be a sponsor of the Virginia Beach Police Department's annual "Bicycle Rodeo"! Every year the VB Police host this great event that focuses on teaching local children bike awareness and safety. All of the participants receive a new bicycle helmet and a complimentary bicycle safety check administered by one of Virginia Beach's finest! Participants also ride through an obstacle course under the watchful eye of an officer and are entered into a raffle to win brand new bikes! What a fun day for local kids!
 
   
 

Noblelympics II was held in April and was once again another great fundraiser to support the International Little League Challenger World Jamboree! The Little League Jamboree is a baseball tournament held every year in Norfolk just for special needs children. Teams come from across the United States and from far away as Canada and Puerto Rico just to participate in this unbelievable event. The final numbers from the Noblelympics event are not all in but it looks like we will be able to write a check for several thousand dollars to the Little League Jamboree to support their outstanding tournament. AWESOME!
 
   
We were overjoyed to have the opportunity to help a great local kid suffering from Asperger's Syndrome this past month. This boy is getting ready to enter the first grade after the summer and his soon-to-be school wanted to provide him with software designed specifically for children suffering from Autism or Asperger's Syndrome to help them prepare for 1st grade and beyond. Unfortunately the family did not have a computer or enough money to consider buying one. The Noblemen were able to acquire a brand new laptop for this young man and he truly could not have been anymore excited about the gift! Special thanks go out to Joe Thatcher, Sam Corey and CSC Leasing Company for helping make this gift possible!
