Our Mission...

 Our mission is to honor and sustain the memory of John R. Zecchino by caring for, and helping others in a manner that is consistent with John’s loving heart, giving spirit, and unique style ...Or simply said in, “John’s Way.” 


Our goal...

John's Way is dedicated to improving the lives of children, seniors, veterans, and any individuals or family faced with overwhelming obstacles such as: health issues, unexpected disasters, abuse and neglect. Our goal is to provide relief and support to make a positive change in their lives.


John had a very special way of helping so many people through difficult times in their lives. His huge heart and kind acts changed their lives for the better and now has inspired our family to continue his work.

Thank You...


We are so grateful to all of you for supporting John's Way Fifth Annual Fundraiser. You made it another wonderful night full of love, laughter, and great memories of John.


It was great to see so many old and new friends come together to celebrate John's life while supporting his foundation. Because of all of your generous donations and support, John's Way raised $15,000 this year!


Thank you so much for making a difference in the lives of the children, veterans, and families who will benefit because of your kindness.  John lived his life continually helping those less fortunate and we are committed to continuing his work through John's Way, and have all of you to thank for making this a reality.

We hope you had a wonderful time at this year's event and appreciate you sharing such a special night with us. Thank you to all those who donated the great auction items and to everyone who helped put the event together.  We couldn't have done it without you!

Please visit this website throughout the year to see how your donations are making a positive difference to those in need.


On behalf of our entire family, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and hope to see all of you next year at the Sixth Annual Fundraiser for John's Way!



 With Our Sincere Love and Appreciation,


 The Zecchino Family
