We will be raising funds for the following two CHARITIES:
1) Moo-la, the City of West Sacramento Parks and Recreation Department's official fee assistance program for West Sacramento families who want their children to benefit from Parks & Recreation programming, but may not be able to afford the cost for activities. With Moo-la, those families can receive financial aid so their kids can play and be active for a lower cost.
2) Make-a-Wish Foundation,® http://www.wish.org/ - Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work.
