  Free to Soar Gala Benefitting Morgan's Wonderland was a Success!











On Saturday, September 18th we held our inagural annual Free to Soar Gala benefitting Morgan's Wonderland.  The Event Center at Morgan's Wonderland was transformed into an elegant gala space where we had over 400 people attend.  We honored our five 2010 Walk of Fame Honorees at the Gala, and also had a Live Auction and a Fund-A-Visit segment that raised funds going towards operating costs of the park so we can continue to allow free admission to those who have special needs.  As a special surprise, we sang Happy Birthday to Morgan, the park's namesake, who turned 17 on September 19th.  Thanks to the support of everyone both in attendance and those who couldn't make it to the Gala but sent in donations we raised over $350,000 for the operating costs for Morgan's Wonderland!
