Jim DeFlorio, Executive Directors, says “that this is the largest fundraiser of our year and the organization depends on its success to be able to offer mentoring programs to the community.  Our local United Way provides us with funding, but the bulk of the operating budget is raised through the many fundraising events held throughout the year.  We count on the community to assist with raising these funds and always try to provide great entertainment and fun time for those that join us.”
