Kaely Kwitek and Daemen College alumna Maggie Dreyer of the Kaely's Kindness Foundation, which provides support to teens living with cancer, will be honored at the 2014 Daemen College Social Work Humanitarian Fund Dinner. The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. March 28 at Hotel @ the Lafayette in Buffalo.
Diagnosed with cancer in 2012, Kwitek co-founded Kaely’s Kindness Foundation after recognizing a need for social, emotional and practical support for teen girls touched by cancer. She’s now majoring in business at the University of Albany.
Dreyer, who received a bachelor’s degree in social work at Daemen, is Kwiteck’s mother and serves as board president of the Kaely’s Kindness Foundation. Director of community based services at GA Family Services, she is on the Daemen Social Work Advisory Board and is an adjunct professor.
