‘‘The con­tin­ued sup­port we re­ceive from lo­cal busi­nesses ev­ery year, whether buy­ing a team, spon­sor­ing a golf hole or do­nat­ing prizes, is amaz­ing,’’ Life Ed­u­ca­tion gen­eral man­ager Michelle Kidd says.

‘‘With new peo­ple get­ting in­volved, we’re able to grow this worth­while an­nual com­mu­nity event.’’
