This year, the Pequannock FBLA Chapter’s Community Service Committee chose to fund a child’s wish through the Elle Foundation.
The child chosen is the adorable Ty, whose wish is to see the Radio City Rockettes. The Pequannock FBLA Chapter was able to find her through the Elle Foundation.
The Elle Foundation’s website explains that they are “the only wish granting organization whose primary mission is to grant wishes for children with a recurrence of cancer. Granting final second wishes requires an extraordinary financial commitment.” The Pequannock FBLA Chapter’s Community Service Committee leaders, Alyssa Romano and Holly Padko, kept in touch with the Elle Foundation’s President and Chairman, Laurie Richmond, in order to coordinate funding Ty’s wish.
The Pequannock FBLA Chapter gathered funds for Ty through a Holiday Festival event. The event took place in Pequannock Township High School, on December 14 from 5:30 to 8 P.M.. The event was open to Pre-K through Grade 5 students, who were charged $5 admission. The children could partake in fun activities in 4 different holiday inspired rooms: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. All rooms were decorated to the nines by volunteers and executive board members.
All proceeds from the event are being donated to fund Ty’s wish. The Chapter looks forward to hearing about her experience at Radio City Hall!
