This year we are benefitting the following local charitable organizations:
MARC Community Resources - an affiliated chapter of The Arc, the largest national volunteer-based organization devoted solely to advocacy on issues pertaining to individuals with I/DD (intellectual and developmental disabilities) and their families.
Mayor Mike’s Foundation For Kids - committed to youth programs in Hartford, particularly for disadvantaged residents of urban neighborhoods where municipal money programs have been steadily drying up, their goal is to have as many baseball, basketball and soccer leagues in the city as are necessary to meet the needs of Hartford’s children.
Finally, beginning this year, the Hartford Rib Off, Inc. has formed the Hartford Rib Off Scholarship Fund. The beneficiary of this fund will be a student from Hartford in need of supplemental support for expenses while at college.
