Tedd Biernstein's connection to the Michael P. Baker family has been strong since the 1970s when Mike Baker purchased the chiropractic business owned by Tedd's father, Herb.

Fast forward to 2013 when Mike Baker was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer; Biernstein held a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for the Michael P. Baker Medical Fund at Biernstein's restaurant, Smiling Chameleon, in Lewisburg.

And now Biernstein is supporting the Michael P. Baker Family in another way.   

"My wife and I have always given back to different charities," said Biernstein. "When we decided to put on tap Berwick Brewery's Lewisburg Light Lager, we wanted to give back 5 percent of our sales to local charities.

"This is the first charity check we're giving out," Biernstein continued, "and we chose the Michael P. Baker Fund because of the relationships between Mike and I, and with Sue [Baker] and [Mike's daughter] Brigette and her family--there's so much history. I thought this would be a good way to start off the charity giving."
 
Biernstein recently presented Sue Baker with a check for $300 for the Michael P. Baker Community Impact Fund. 

The Michael P. Baker Fund was started in 2014 to help people in the communities Baker served cope with catastrophic illness and circumstance.
 ​ 
Michael P. Baker touched many lives, but he would tell people that they touched him more, and that he is profoundly grateful to all who crossed his path during his lifetime. He will be missed, but not forgotten in the memories of the countless people who knew and loved him. And, through this fund, administered by the First Community Foundation of PA, Mike's generous spirit will live on.  

Each year, $1000 is distributed by the Michael P. Baker Community Impact Fund, through the Salvation Army, American Red Cross and Favors Forward Foundation, to families coping with catastrophic illness or circumstance.

The fundraising team, comprised of community members and Mike's family and friends, is committed to raising the $25,000 needed to make the fund self-sustaining, in perpetuity. The fundraising team is halfway there. 

The Incentives Page outlines one option:  donate money and receive ​Susquehanna Life magazine advertising and subscription perks for you, your business or your organization. 

Or donations of any amount can be made at MichaelPBakerFund.org

Will you help us meet the $25,000 goal? More information is at MichaelPBakerFund.org.
