The Dr. Theodore A. Atlas Foundation is not a not-for-profit community service organization that provides financial and emotional support to individuals and organizations in need and focuses particularly on the needs of children. It was founded in 1997 by boxing trainer, commentator and motivational speaker Teddy Atlas to honor the memory of his father, Dr. Theodore Atlas. Dr. Atlas was a physician who for 55 years provided medical services to his community. His spirit of giving is embodied in the Foundation that bears his name.
The Foundation comes to the aid of people in a variety of difficult situations, people who have no where else to turn for help, people who would otherwise fall between the crack. And it does so in a very direct and a very real way. Once the Foundation identifies a person or a family in need, it moves immediately to help and avoids any bureaucratic obstacles that might damage the recipient's pride.
In addition to helping literally thousands of individuals and families in their time of need, the Foundation has engaged in large endeavors, such as opening and operating youth boxing gyms in both Staten Island and Brooklyn, creating incentive programs in schools to encourageand motivate students and distributing turkeys on Thanksgiving and toys on Christmas to families who do not have the financial resources to properly celebrate the holidays.
There is much work to be done, and the Foundation remains committed to its mission of bringing help to people in their time of need no matter how great or small the call. Please show your support by attending the Teddy Dinner.
The Atlas Foundation holds an annual dinner, which is the single largest source of the Foundation's donations. Over one thousand supporters attend the "Teddy" Dinner, along with numerous celebrity athletes and actors who show their support for the work of the Foundation. Notable sports celebrities such as Bill Parcells, Eric Mangini, Sterling Sharpe, Chad Pennington,Curtis Martin, Gary Sheffield, John Franco, John McEnroe, George Foreman, Michael Moorer, Sugar Ray Leonard, Pete Rose and Harry Carson, and entertainment celebrities such as Chris Noth, Chuck Zito, Danny Aiello, Tony Sirico, Max Kellerman, Bob Papa, Joe Tessitore, Mike Francesa and Steven Baldwin have attended the Dinner to help raise funds and support the Foundation.
