PFF16

PFF16 was our pioneering event! It was held on September 24th at Wild Bill’s Nostalgia in Middletown CT. It’s cause was a rare bone disorder called Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP). Through the work of the Pullano Family and a devoted volunteer committee the event was a huge success! 6 FOP patients attended the event & announced the official FOP Awareness Day in CT was to be held for the first time on November 26th 2017. The fundraiser was an all day music festival (11AM-11PM) complete with 7 local bands, 3 live speakers, craft vendors, a bocce tournament, corn hole, silent auctions and raffle prizes, hula-hoop entertainers, a “comfort” food stand, & even an art installation.
