There will also be draws open to all who donate in that particular segment.
“Working with many local charities the last 25 years one group stands out for myself and that is Easter Seals. The families and the many children involved in the programs are truly inspiring and any financial support of in kind donations can really help with travel, summer camps, and medical equipment.“ - Joe Maione
