Jeff Hagan, Director of Marketing at Wendell Foster commented, “The annual benefit is the primary fund-raiser of the year for Wendell Foster. Throughout Wendell Foster’s history, the community has always been very supportive from the Postman’s Walk and Milk Fund collections to local farmers harvesting their produce for us. We are fortunate to have ongoing support from the community. The purpose of this ask is the same today as it was when founded in 1947. In years past, this event generated funds to purchase wheelchair-accessible vans, electric beds, communication devices and other assistive technology. It has helped fund playground equipment and other interactive features for the Sensory Park, just to name a few. In 2016, the benefit raised $122,000 net thanks to our generous supporters.”
