Festival of lights 2017
On November 6, 2017, Christine Charles and sister, Marian Kochor hosted an annual event, The Festival of Lights at Brewery, THC HOPPS in Derby, Connecticut.
Christine and Marian involve their community and friends in this event each year, generously donating all the proceeds to the Tommy Fund. Christine has been affiliated with Tommy Fund fundraising events over a twenty-year period.
The money from this event is raised from the price of admission and the raffle options. This year's event resulted in over $13,000 raised for the Tommy Fund. Christine is always willing to donate her time and marketing expertise to the Tommy Fund organization.
Katie Winkle & Julia Berv, two of the Tommy Fund's newest Board members, spoke about their experiences with childhood cancer and what it means to them to be part of the Tommy Fund organization. They are both thrilled at the chance to give back to other children who are fighting cancer.
Christine and Marian will continue to host this event and further information will be available on our homepage.
