A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation announces new additions including two Cape Codders

The A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation is delighted to welcome Diane Riche as an Administrative Assistant, Lenny Ferarra to the Board of Directors and welcome back Tara Cronin as their Marketing Director.

Diane Riche, the Foundation’s new Administrative Assistant, is the mother of two grown children and lives in Cotuit with her newly retired husband. She previously worked as an Office Manager and as an Inventory Associate at Staples in Hyannis. Diane lost her mother to ovarian cancer 6 months ago and has become very active in her spare time with the organization Girly Girl P.A.R.T.S. which works to prevent ovarian cancer.

Lenny Ferrara, Jr., of Raynham, has joined the Foundation as a member of their Board of Directors. After running his company Superior Rail & Iron Works, Inc., since the early 1970s, he recently handed over the reins of day-to-day operation to his son, Anthony Ferrara. Lenny lost his first wife, Janice to A.L.S. 10 years ago and has been the major sponsor of the A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation’s signature event, the “Cliff Walk” for A.L.S. Fundraiser held on the Cape Cod Canal every September since its inception.

Marketing Director Tara Cronin lives in Yarmouth and received a Bachelor’s degree in Communications from Suffolk University in 2005.  She previously worked for the Foundation as the Marketing Director from 2005-2009 but took an extended leave after giving birth to twins in January 2010.

“We’re very excited about all our new additions,” says Foundation President, Mary Ann (Sciaba) Singersen. “The Foundation is in its 10th year and is growing in many ways and serving more patients than ever before. We are looking forward to 2011.”
