“The mission of the Tommy Finnegan Legacy Foundation (TFLF) is to provide assistance to families whose children have suffered illness, rendering them physically and/or mentally challenged. The support provided will directly affect and enhance the life of that child, which in turn benefits the family as a whole. The TFLF will provide assistance, utilizing resources gathered through fundraising events, after evaluating the needs of each family seeking assistance.”
