Teagen Get’s His Dream

Teagen Get’s His Dream

Our All-Volunteer Southern Ocean Chapter did it once again!! Headed by Tom Siciliano, the S.O. Chapter held it’s 22nd Annual Flue/Bluefish Tournament. The day was perfect with not a cloud in the sky!! There were many great prizes to win and lots of wonderful treats to enjoy. The beneficiary of this event was 5 year old Teagen who has Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. Teagan was presented his dream by last year’s beneficiary Grace. Grace and several other past dreamers got to play and hang out with Teagen and his family while planning out what adventures Teagen will enjoy the most. Teagen can’t wait to go to our Sunshine Foundation Dream Village with his family!! He will get to go to Universal Studios and the other theme parks too. We would love to thank all of the sponsors, the fishing teams and all of our amazing volunteers who did such a great job!!

Ariel gets her dream!!

Ariel gets her dream!!

We did it!! Together we raised enough to send Ariel and her family to her dream trip in Disney!! Ariel is a great young lady who happens to have epilepsy. She loves the Disney princesses and became fast friends with Belle and Snow White at our 5k. Ariel’s big dream is to meet Minnie Mouse!! She will get to spend time at our Sunshine Foundation Dream Village and forget about any stress she has. This year our RunWalkBark4Dreams welcomed some new friends and sponsors. We want to welcome and thank Kitchen Savers and Action Karate of Newtown, PA. We would not be able to grant these special dreams without the support of our community and all of our amazing sponsors who come back and support us each year. Continue Reading
