Socialite Spotlight: The Peetes

The Jonathan Foundation was founded by Raja Marhaba in 2001 when both of her sons were diagnosed with ADHD and learning disabilities. Today both sons –  Jonathan and Omar –  sit on the Board of The Jonathan Foundation and are actively involved – mentoring children, and helping them to better understand that their disability is not a disability but a “gift.”

Actress, author, talk show host, activist and philanthropist Holly Robinson Peete and her husband –  former NFL quarterback and host Rodney Peete – can be seen regularly juggling their professional pursuits with their philanthropic activities and busy home life on their TV show “Meet The Peetes “on the Hallmark Channel.

The proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards The Jonathan Foundation’s Assessment Scholarship Program.
