Thank You to the Ladies and Boys of Hampden

Many thanks to Nikki Verdecchia Berry for organizing the dunking booth at HonFest and designating the Family Center as the recipient of funds raised that day. The attraction was the Ladies and Boys of Hampden and a few other willing participants who volunteered to be dunked numerous times for our benefit. From all accounts the water was COLD and they continued to persevere – many being dunked several times. Shout Outs to; Walter Berry, Production Solutions; The NV Salon Collective; Kat Feuerstein; Shannon Reilly, Charm City Skin; Jacq Jones; Sugar; Will Bauer; Matt the Rat Czar; Leon Pinkett, City Council; Kim Smith, Liquor Board; Dave, K&S Auto; Trixie Little; Ben Malmin, Edye Sanford & Family; Randy Oto, Cloud Nine and Denise Whiting, Café Hon. Thank you all that participated and those that supported the booth. We are very grateful for all your efforts!
