Shoot for Olivia’s Wish benefits NCCF’s Olivia’s 5K Wish Run Fund
Olivia’s 5K Wish Run Fund, a fund of the North-ern Chautauqua Commun-ity Foundation, received a generous donation of $5,000 from the 2016 Shoot for Olivia’s Wish fundraiser. The event took place at the Hanover Fish and Game Club on Sunday, Sept. 4.
A special thank you to organizers Ken Drozdziel and Samantha Vacanti who presented the $5,000 check to David Coia to support Olivia’s 5K Wish Run’s efforts to promote awareness and research for Triple Negative Breast as well as scholarships for local high school students.
Shoot for Olivia’s Wish brought in 53 shooters to the 100 Target Sporting Clays Registered event held in Forestville. Shooters came from not only several states, but also Canada. Drozdziel also thanks all the sponsors who helped make this year’s event a success and to everyone who participated in the ticket auction and Buffalo Bills ticket raffle.
