9th Annual Shannon Daley Memorial Fund Charity Basketball Event

Join us for a competitive day of fun and fundraising.

The Shannon Daley Memorial Fund is proud to announce its 9th Annual Charity Basketball Event. The 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 serious ailment. The first recipient is Damien Giammarco from Bridgewater who suffers from a rare genetic disorder called Distal Arthrogryposis also known as Freeman Sheldon Syndrome. The second recipient is 3 year old Joseph Delli Santi of Readington who was born prematurely (12 oz. at birth). The third recipient is 11 year old Taliah Gresham of Somerset who has spastic Cerebral Palsy.

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.
