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, we saw another amazing success. The event total is now over $48,000!!! That's down a little from last year, but we didn't get that fantastic $8,000 from Disney. So, if we use $42,000 in 2016 and $48,000 in 2017, it's about a 15% increase! I can't be more ecstatic with the results. We should be able to fund five wishes this year alone!
Since this event started in 2006, after twelve years, $296,000 has been collected over 40 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!!
