Fraxa foundation presents award to doris buffett
The Fraxa Research Foundation was started by three parents of children who suffer from a genetic disorder called Fragile X. Since 1994, Fraxa
has donated over $17 million dollars for scientific research. Doris Buffet, President of the Sunshine Lady Foundation
and sister of Warren Buffett, received recognition at the Fraxa gala for donating $2 million dollars to the charity.

In 2007, Buffett teamed up with Fraxa to create the "Doris Buffett Challenge" honoring to match all donations.
Buffett's Sunshine Lady Foundation
consists of 150 "sunbeams" across the country who each allocate $10,000 a year to the less fortunate. "We never give a handout," the foundation's brochure says. "We give a hand up."
