"The greatness of an individual is not in how much wealth they can acquire, but in their integrity and ability to affect those around them positively." -Bob Marley
Almost one year ago a grave tragedy took place in CT. Sadly innocent lives of children and educators were lost, leaving behind families and loved ones. We want to forever carry on their memory and recognize how important it is to band together as a community to continue to heal from this tragedy.
In honor of the My Sandy Hook Family Fund we will be hosting a "plunge party" at Lake Compounce New England's Family Theme Park in Bristol, CT. Get ready to make a splash for an amazing cause! Please come out to show your support and don't let a little chilly water keep you from being a part of this extraordinary opportunity! Take a leap into the lake and show some love for the families and community of Newtown!
An After Plunge Party will be hosted at Bleachers Bar in Bristol beginning at 12:00pm. It is conveniently right down the road from the park (300 Middle Street, Bristol). There will be great food, raffles, and fun for all!
The World Adult Kickball Association (WAKA) will also be supporting our charity efforts. This is a wonderful organization that gathers adults together to play kickball, make great friends, and celebrate the value of sportsmanship through league celebrations and special events. It is a network of amazing people from across the US dedicated to having fun and making a difference.
