What is the NewDay Foundation?


Our Mission

 The mission of the NewDay Foundation is to help cancer patients as they struggle with the everyday challenges of treatments and the obstacles that they may face. We hand deliver "Bags of Hope" to first time chemo and radiation patients as well as new teddy bears, coloring books and crayons, reading/activity books to children at local hospitals to provide comfort to those individuals as they experience the difficulties of cancer and side effects from chemotherapy.  


Giving Back

 NewDay is also committed to bringing music into the lives of those who recognize the benefits of music as an alternative form of therapy.  The foundation has also started a Connie Yagelski-Marhanka Music Scholarship. It’s a scholarship given to high school seniors that are pursuing a future in music. The scholarship winners are announced and presented with their checks at the concert each year. It was a dream of Connie’s to help inspire young musicians to follow their dreams and aspirations in the field of music. Her dreams have become a reality at last.
