This year’s proceeds will be donated to “Miracles to Milestones”. “Miracles to Milestones” is a non-profit organization that is trying to raise money build a new handicap accessible playground in St. Charles Parish on donated land. “Miracles to Milestones” was founded by Hillary Sirmon, a mother of three (soon to be four) children, including Benjamin (almost 2) who has a rare genetic disorder called Centronuclear Myopathy-DNM2. Their motto is “WE PLAY AS ONE!” For more information on Benjamin and his family, please check out www.miraclestomilestones.wordpress.com.
