“This event grows year after year and raises money to support this wonderful service we provide,” said Director of Development & Communication Susie Beresford. “The community really rallies to make this happen. Local breweries donate their beer, Central Market donates the tastiest bratwursts in town, Macrina Bakery donates brioche buns and the parents of our sweet kids in here, donate their time and efforts to make this event happen.”
