Welcome to the Darts for Dreams info page. Here, you'll find all the useful
information to help you understand what Darts for Dreams is about, how to help out,
and how to get involved.
Some brief history- Starting in 2006, the GTDL partnered with Make A Wish New Jersey for an event called Darts for Dreams. We raised just about $5,800. While nothing too shabby, we quickly realized there was so much more out there. Our second year we raised $8,300.
Our totals have increased each year, with the 2016 even raising over $50,000!!! For MAWNJ, we were the second largest external event in the entire state in 2016. Pretty remarkable!
MAWNJ has set an ambitious goal of increasing the number of wishes in NJ from about 450 to over 700. This is the number of wishes they feel exists, if they only knew about them. That increase will require almost 3 million extra dollars each year. While Darts for Dreams will never reach that amount, we are proud to do our part to close the gap.
This year, as we have in the past, we'll be raising money in a number of ways. First, and foremost is for players in our area and surrounding areas to come out and enjoy the day. Another way to participate is to be a sponsor of the event. That includes financial support and in-kind support. Another way to help is to drop off letters at local business who may be able themselves to help with a sponsorship or donation. Lastly, consider buying some raffles and possibly win a TV, XBox or iPad.
Since this event started in 2006, about now, after ten years, $248,000 has been collected and 35 or so wishes have been sponsored!!!
Thank you to everyone- Sponsors, Attendees, Volunteers our host locations and anyone who has helped in anyway at all!!
