18th Annual Shannon Daley Memorial Fund Charity Basketball Event

Shoot some hoops with friends and family to help those that need it most.

The Shannon Daley Memorial Fund is proud to announce its 18th Annual Charity Basketball Event. The Readington Teachers and Readington Men’s All Star Team will once again take on the world renowned Harlem Wizards.

The Harlem Wizards are one of the greatest basketball show-team organizations to ever “lace it up and let ’em fly.” Each event at which the Harlem Wizards perform offers a rare combination of individual athleticism, teamwork, and entertainment for every fan in attendance.

The Shannon Daley Memorial Fund mission is to assist local families facing financial hardship due to a child battling a serious illness. The first recipient is 7 year old Rebecca Piro from Raritan Township who has Stage 4 Kidney Cancer. The second recipient is 1 year old Domenica Scalzo from Green Brook who has Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). The third recipient is 4 year old Trent Powers from Cranbury who is diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The fourth recipient is 5 year old Andrew Arias from Hampton who has had a heart transplant and has been diagnosed with cancer from his anti-rejection medicine.

How We Use Donations

Paying Medical Expenses

Times can be tough, and when you’re trying to be strong for your children, it can be quite a challenge to stay afloat financially. We want to help Readington Township families and their sickly children so that they may live a wonderful life.

Improving Quality of Life

Sometimes something small can make a big impact. Whether it’s retrofitting a van or buying a child a wheelchair, we try to help our recipients in ways that can most make their lives easier.

Help Parents do What They Do Best.

It’s not easy to be a parent, and everyone could use a helping hand. Coupled with a serious illness of your child, a family can be saddled with a host of problems- finance issues, stress, and more. We are here to help Readington Township residents, and one of the ways we have done so is by paying mortgages to allow a parent to stay home with their sick child. It’s hard to stay afloat, and we understand.
