Where does my money go?

Proceeds benefit United Way educational programs and support services.  By providing quality early education and out-of-school-time programs, children achieve academic success, stay on track to graduate, obtain a good job in the future and contribute to a better life for all.  

A portion of event proceeds will be used to purchase children’s books for Harc’s new library. Harc helps individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families enjoy a quality life. Learn more about Harc at harc-ct.org.
