The Tri-City Children's Dream Foundation would like to send out a special thank you to Mr. Siler and his marketing class at Lincoln High School, for their great work in putting together this year's Sportainment Night at Lincoln High School.

This is a special project in which the students of this class learn the many important skills needed to take a project from just an idea, to a money-making event. These are the students who have made this year's Sportainment Night successful: Noah Bakunowicz, Ryan Duxbury, Lacus Gause, Tyler Gilbert, Nathan Henke, Sadie Hicks, Maai Khang Hang, Kylee Krzykowski, Jennifer Nicolaus, Benjamin O'Shasky, Jacob Ott, Sydney Pemble, Benjamin Reinwand, Emily Seitz, Chace Smith, Jacob Stephens, Hunter Van Ert, Cody Vollert and Cole Walters.

This year's event raised $2,520. We want to thank the class for donating the proceeds from this event to the Tri-City Children's Dream Foundation.

We also want to thank Allied Health Chiropractor care in Nekoosa for its donation of $640 through the help of their patients.

That evening we granted a dream to a special little girl named Ella Matthews. Ella, her brother Evan, and her mom and dad, Stephanie and Dan Mathews, left for Disney World on March 7.

The Tri-City Children's Dream Foundation raises money through our sponsorship program and different events during the year. Our Bowling for Dreams Scotch Doubles Bowling Tournament was held at Evergreen Lanes recently.

If you have questions or need information about the Foundation or upcoming events, call 715-886-5111 or go to www.everychildrensdream.org.

All money raised stays here locally, to help our special needs children, in the Tri-City area of Wisconsin Rapids, Port Edwards and Nekoosa.

Look for our Clouds, which many local businesses are selling. Help us - buy a cloud for a dollar, put your name on it and it will be displayed.

On behalf of the children we work with we thank you. Remember - Every Child Has A Dream.
