CEO and Founder
Valentine's Day is celebrated to express affection between relatives, friends, and special someones every February. We send you this Valentine, The Jeffrey Foundation's February/March 2021 Newsletter, with love and heartfelt thanks.
The Jeffrey Foundation is so grateful to all our dedicated supporters, as well as new friends, all who help us make a difference in the life of a child with special needs and their families. Without your support, especially during these challenging pandemic times, our vital programs and operations would not be able to survive.
In our 49th year of operation, the Foundation is hopeful about making plans to celebrate our 50th Anniversary in 2022. We are placing a shout out to all Circle of Love members and any interested volunteers to assist the Foundation with our programs and operations' funding and the planning of our 50th celebration. Please reach out to me by email at email@example.com or by calling me at 323.965.7536.
Wishing YOU & YOURS A HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

A great Light has circulated Hollywood for decades, shining brightly upon countless audiences of the stage, big and small screens - and that Light was the actor named Peter Mark Richman. A professional from the word go, Richman shared his enormous and multifaceted talents with the world for over 50 years.
Name any television program of any worth that ever aired, and Richman appeared on it. Measure any scene in any T.V. show, motion picture, or play in which he ever performed, and he hit his mark with precision. There are not enough numbers in the decimal system to correctly calculate the number of times Richman delivered the goods of his vocation.
On television alone, his impact is astounding. From his early T.V. days on anthology shows like The Armstrong Circle Theatre, Alfred Hitchock Presents, The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, through the 1960s on his classic series, Cain's Hundred, to action/adventure shows like The Man From U.N.C.L.E., It Takes A Thief, through the 1970s on detective shows such as Longstreet, (on which he had a regular role), Baretta, Barnaby Jones, and Charlie's Angels, through the 1980s with Hart to Hart, Knight Rider, Dynasty, Star Trek: The Next Generation, on into the 1990s with Beverly Hills, 90210, and beyond.
Whether voicing God or playing Suzanne Sommer's minister father on Three's Company; whether voicing an animated Spider-Man or confronting The Six Million Dollar Man live, Richman did it all - with class, sophistication, and elegance.
Since The Jeffrey Foundation's early days, Peter Mark donated his talent and time. After the passing of Hollywood great Steve Allen, Peter Mark took over as the Foundation's go-to MC for hundreds of events. Both Peter Mark, his wife Helen, and their family were loving, generous Foundation supporters.
Peter Mark, we LOVE and MISS you. God Bless.
