Best Day Ever Party To Prevent Drowning Supports Preschool Program

April 6, 2017 | Partnerships

Saturday, April 1 was a spectacular night for Colin’s Hope, as we raised essential funds to support the Preschool Swim Safety Program.

Thank you to our guests, our sponsors, and our volunteers for making a HUGE RIPPLE at the Best Day Ever Party to Prevent Drowning!

What an amazing evening for all who attended. Thank You so very much.

While we are still tallying up the totals and tidying up numbers, we believe that with the community’s support and generous contributions, we raised over $100,000 for Colin’s Hope!  This is absolutely incredible and means that so many more children will be able to participate in our Preschool Swim Safety Program. We will be able to provide more families with life saving water safety education and more life jackets to loaner stations at area lakes.

We are so energized to do all we can to continue our fight to prevent drowning.  

We celebrate the memory and life of the children we have lost to drowning (Colin, Tristan, Averie, Grace, Sarah… ) and the vibrant lives of those who have survived a non-fatal drowning (Jack, Mason, and Brady). We use these angels and children as our motivation to do all we can to achieve our vision of a world where children do not drown. We are so grateful that our supporters share this vision with us.

Please talk to your family and friends about water safety. Please change your behavior to be safer around water.  We challenge everyone to visit our website for water safety resources and take our Water Safety Quiz to become a Water Guardian.

Finally, we thank you everyone for helping us to exceed our fundraising goals while raising incredible awareness for drowning prevention.
