About Us

Charlie’s Corner is a foundation that creates fun events to bring family, friends and the community together to support great causes!

Charlie Cavanagh was born on his big brother Keegan’s birthday, April 29th, 2016. He was born a healthy boy with a full head of hair leading to many jokes at his dad’s expense. After coming home, Charlie developed a fever and was taken to the hospital. After several days and being transferred to Lurie Children’s Hospital, we learned that Charlie had contracted Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1. He fought with so much courage for two weeks, but the virus was just too much for him to overcome. In Charlie’s short time with us, he taught us so many wonderful life lessons. He taught us about courage, strength and humility. We truly believe Charlie was brought into our lives for a reason. Charlie’s greatest gift was showing us how much love and care there is in the world. Therefore, we created Charlie’s Corner Foundation. It brings us great joy to be able to host fun events that bring family, friends and the community together while supporting an important cause.

Thank you to everyone who continues to participate and show their support to help spread and carry on Charlie’s legacy.
