    Our 4th Annual Fundraiser to benefit the Give Kids The World Village will be held October 1st in Newark, Delaware from 11AM until 3PM.

    As in the past we will have a live, silent auction and raffles (and maybe a few surprises).
    Ben & Michelle Twilley of Green Gavel Auction will be returning to bring their unique style of auction & fun to the Live Auction portion of our Big Event, and we already have a large number of items already lined up!

    We will be doing a hayride again this year at Milburn Orchard. Milburn is about 20 minutes away from the hotel. The hayride will be on Saturday October 1 starting at 8:00 PM. Cost will be $10 per person. If you would like to go please let me know and you can pay at the big event.



    Tickets are $30 (includes lunch) and are available at http://dmwa2016.eventzilla.net.

    The festivities will take place at the Christiana Hilton, which is conveniently located immediately off of I-95, exit 4B
    We have secured group rates at the hotel of $129 / night + taxes. Room amenities include:
    • Breakfast for 2 guests per room (each additional guest will pay $12.00)
    • Complimentary Guests Parking
    • Complimentary Internet Service
    • Complimentary Shuttle Service within 10 miles of the hotel
    Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-348-3133 up to August 31, 2016. Please mention the group “Delaware Magical Wishes Association” in order to secure the special room rate.

    My wife and I are looking forward to it. We won't stay at the hotel but anything you need let me know.

    We talked to Laura at the10th anniversary meet and she had us sold.

    I really want to come. The fiance though isn't as interested. How far away is this from the Amtrak station in willington? Trying to see if maybe I can Amtark from NYC to there and then Uber to the hotel or something.

    It's roughly a 20 minute drive but check with DART too which is their regional line. I know they run to the Christiana mall often.

    Thanks. I'll check DART. I saw I could catch something from the Amtrak station to there so it doesn't seem too crazy.

    We're registered! See you there.

    Just to be clear, there is only the Saturday event, correct? Nothing Friday night or Saturday night? So no reason to stay over?

    I hope to make it. I've heard nothing about it on the Podcast and you are about a month out from it.
