This is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Amity Teen Center, which was formed as a non-profit in 1987. The mission of the Amity Teen Center is to provide a safe place where area teens can meet and socialize in a drug-free and alcohol-free supervised environment. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Teen Center, which is located at 10 Selden Street in Woodbridge.
This is a great way to ring in 2020, and to be served chili by the First Selectman of Orange, Jim Zeoli! If you have any questions, please call Race Director, Joe Riccio, at 203 481-7453.
