Throw A Dart For Wishes In The Darts For Dreams Dart-A-Thon

The Greater Trenton Dart League has been working to fundraise for Make-A-Wish New Jersey since 2006. In that time they have managed to raise more than $135,000 to help make wishes come true in the community. This year, they are hoping the Darts For Dreams Dart-A-Thon will push them over the $150,000 mark. You can be a part of this great milestone when you take part in the May 3 event! This is the ninth annual Darts For Dreams Dart-A-Thon and is open to anyone interested in making a difference.

The Dart-A-Thon will take place at the Cook Athletic Association in Hamilton. Make a $10 donation at the door to get in and watch the event or take a shot at the high score for $5. The top scores each hour will receive a prize. There is no set start time, but doors open at noon. Arrive when you can and spend the afternoon with the Trenton Dart League.
