The Helen David Relief Fund (HDRF) was started in 2015 by Las Vegas hospitality industry legend Tony Abou-Ganim. Abou-Ganim, a lifetime member of the United States Bartenders’ Guild, founded the HDRF in memory of his cousin, Helen David, herself a bar owner who in her lifetime twice survived battles with breast cancer. The mission of the HDRF is to support bartenders and their families affected by breast, and other forms of, cancer.
