Wow. It was standing room only, so many people came out to support Make-A-Wish and the teams! A wonderful night, made all the more special because when we tallied all the donations, we raised (drum roll please): $19,000 for Make-A-Wish! That allows Make-A-Wish to grant two (2!!!) wishes to children and their families. We are stunned and oh so happy!
A major thank you to the teams and their supporters. They worked so hard, with great enthusiasm, to raise an astounding amount of money. Big thank yous also to the volunteers who contributed their time and effort, especially our fantastic referees Russ and Renee, and the wonderful people from Kohl’s. Also, Jim, from Wedding And Party, for volunteering as sound man and the use of his wonderful equipment. On behalf of the CT Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, thanks to everyone who made the event such a success and so much fun!
