GATHERING THE GREAT GUYS AND GALS
At the age of 32, Paul’s wife Nicole was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Even though this was an extremely difficult time, the Isenberg’s were astonished by the love and support from family, friends, and strangers alike. They felt so blessed to have such great people in their lives. Nicole had an idea for Paul to get all of the “Great Guys” together for a benefit dinner to reconnect with his longtime friends, thank them for their support, and help other families less fortunate. This is where the concept of the “Great Guys Dinner” was born. The first Great Guys Dinner took place in 2001, gathered 100 guys, and raised $13,000. Sadly, Nicole’s fight ended in 2003 at the young age of 39, but her legacy lives on through the special work we do in her honor. Since our inception in 2008, we have supported over 9,500 local Families with over $11.3 million in assistance.
