The Free Stuff!
The support we received from local and national partners was outstanding. Each attendee left with a bag filled with goodies valued at nearly $50! Thank you to all of our friends who helped fill the bags & to those that enabled us to raffle off several amazing giveaways!
This event was made possible with the help of all of the above partners. A special thank you to our title sponsor, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
Can’t wait to see you at our next event!
