“I’m grateful for Rob Stafford and LeeAnn Trotter, the actors and all who have donated food, drinks and raffle prizes to this event,” says Frontain.

Frontain created the organization in memory of her son, Patrick Boswell, who tragically lost his life to gun violence in Rosemont, Illinois in January 2015.
