Sunday, February 10th, 2019 - DancEd. Dancers & Philly Baer Reaching Out


Our sincere gratitude to owners Tracy & Scott Reynolds and the DancEd. company dancers at DancEd., Northbrook, IL, for all their time and effort. With resolve, the DanceEd family committed themselves to fundraising on behalf of The Philly Baer Foundation.

Tracy and Scott combined education, empathy, kindness and dance to empower the dancers to take the opportunity to influence and change the lives of children in need of therapeutic services. Their determination and activism powered extraordinary generosity from the DancEd. community. DancEd. proved what Emily Dickinson said, "Trust in the unexpected". Their advocacy for children with special needs will always be treasured by the children they impacted through The Philly Baer Foundation.

Congratulations to the raffle winners!

  • Grand Prize: Lance Donenberg

  • 2nd Prize: Tracy Becker

  • 3rd Prize: Sergio Castellon


DancEd. dancers were asked to design posters promoting the event. See their beautiful drawings below:


2019 Maple Bake Sales


The 2019 Maple Bake Sales were tremendous successes! Co-sponsors Ms. Reimer and Ms. Zhang, student council board members and representatives took The Philly Baer Foundation to heart, earning $1,550. Thank you for the gifts of time, baking and support. These students proved that with kindness and effort, they have the power to make a difference in a stranger's life.

A special thank you to Ms. Reimer for baking batches and batches and batches of her famous, delicious brownies!
