DFRC Holidazzle, an enduring and popular fall fundraiser, settled in at the Hockessin Athletic Club on Saturday night, filling the sports complex with all sorts of activities for dressed up party-goers. While there were no diving or hoops contests, guests dined to their hearts delight, enjoying nibbles from eight area restaurants that set up food stations throughout the aquatics area and gymnasium.  The ‘Starry Night’ affair also included a sports-themed silent auction, art show, and balloon and 50/50 raffles.

This year’s event was a change of pace from previous and more formal events held at Longwood Gardens and Hercules Plaza. “We like to change things up and keep it fun,” said DFRC Executive Director Tony Glenn, who sported a Blue-Gold All-Star Football sweatshirt with a nod to the HAC venue. “The mission of DFRC is all about inclusion and focusing the abilities of each life, and the HAC is a great venue to help us remind us of what we embrace,” he said. What’s more, Bob Carpenter owns the Hockessin Athletic Club, and his grandfather started DFRC in 1956. 

Since 1974 Holidazzle has raised funds for DFRC – the Delaware Foundation Reaching Citizens with Intellectual Disabilities
