The Hannah Storm Foundation is . Our goal is to inspire individual potential and to promote an active and fulfilling life.
The Hannah Storm Foundation was created in 2008 to raise awareness, fund treatment and provide educational information for children suffering from debilitating and disfiguring vascular birthmarks. Hannah’s passion stems from being born with a port wine stain birthmark underneath her left eye.
Past activities held by the Hannah Storm Foundation include: the 2013 Celebrity Waiter Night held at Gabrielle’s in Greenwich, CT; the 2015, 2017 & 2019 Celebrity Waiter Nights held at the famed New York Athletic Club in New York City; and the long-awaited, post-pandemic 2021 Celebrity Waiter Cocktail Party held at The Village in Stamford, CT. All events raised monies to directly fund vascular birthmark surgical procedures for our patients.
HSF also funds the Hannah Storm Journalism Internship at Notre Dame. It was created in 2006 as an opportunity for current Notre Dame undergraduate students to gain practical experience while working in the Alumni Association’s Communications and Marketing department. Since its inception, we have awarded 13 students with internships, with many going on to jobs in the journalism, communications and marketing fields.
