The Brendan & Liam Shanahan

Car Wash

May 19th, 2012

We would like to thank all the players from the Junior High Softball Team from East Rockaway, especially assistant coach Brianna O'Hagan, who organized a car wash on May 19th for our Foundation. It was amazing how many people showed up in support of us. The cars were non stop from 9 am to 2:30 pm. All the girls worked so hard never taking a break and always with big smiles on their faces.

We were overwhelmed with emotions to see all the support that we received. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Brendan & Liam are smiling from above along with all the other Alper Angels.


CHARITY GAME: Hanks Yanks vs. C.W. Post Baseball Game

October 18th, 2011


The Hanks Yanks & C.W. Post baseball team hosted a game for our Foundation! The Hank Yanks is a team owned by Hank Steinbrenner and has Ray Negron as their manager. The team is made up of teenagers from all walks of life. It was created to give these kids a chance to play baseball and help them stay on the right track. They concentrate on playing for local charties on Long Island. It was both an honor & privilege that they chose our Foundation to play for. They are all such amazing young men. We had so many friends & family come and support us which made the day that much more special. Our son, Tyler, threw out the first pitch and made it all the way to home plate... it was such a proud moment for all of us. We couldn't thank all the players, team managers & the C.W. Post Athletic Department enough.

Our Donation To A Local Hospital

November of 2011


   In November of 2011 we had the opportunity to help the wonderful staff at Winthrop hospital, where Brendan and Liam were cared for. One of our goals when starting the foundation was to help update the family resource center on the pediatric wing of the hospital. Through everyone's support over the past 3 years this became a reality when we supplied them with new TV's, Playstation 3's,digital cameras, video cameras, and DVD movies and games. We hope our donation brings some much deserved smiles to all the children in there.

5K Walk 2008

October 25th, 2008

     We would like to proudly announce the birth of our very healthy twins: Dylan & Gabriella born on November 10, 2009.   The babies were conceived through PGD (Preimplantation for Genetic Diagnosis) and IVF.  With much thanks to advance technology and some terrific doctors, they were able to test the embryos before implanting them to make sure that they did not have the Alpers Disease.   Both babies are beautiful and doing great. Tyler is a very proud big brother and can't get enough of them!  We are cherishing every second with all of them and know that they will always have special little angels looking over them.
