Please join us for A Night of Celebration In memory of Brad Balson to benefit the Welles Park Parents Association.
In the Summer of 2013 we lost our dear friend Brad. Not a day goes by that he is not sorely missed. His absence only serves to underscore how truly special he was and how blessed we were to have him in our lives, albeit far too briefly.
One of Brad's greatest joys was coaching his sons, Ethan and Bennett, in baseball at Welles Park. Brad's family will work with the WPPA board of directors to determine the best use of the money raised at the event.
The fundraiser will be held at the beautiful Salvatore's in Lincoln Park. The evening will include music, appetizers, cocktails, and a sensational dinner to accompany a Silent Auction, Super Bowl Squares and more!
