DARIEN, Conn. -- The inaugural Paddle for Person-To-Person “Hitting for Heat” event held at the Wee Burn Country Club in Darien this past weekend raised $30,000 for the organization.

The money was raised thanks to local Platform Tennis players, as well as new and long-time friends of Person-To-Person–including JoyRide Darien and Gold Sponsor Neuberger Berman.

Person-to-Person is a community-supported agency that provides emergency assistance for basic needs, and support for individuals and families as they move towards stability.

Three hundred dollars makes a significant difference in the life of a Person-To-Person client struggling to keep the heat on during the winter. It pays for an emergency oil delivery or prevents the shut-off of gas and electric services.

Because of the support from the Darien event, 100 families will stay warm in their homes this winter. To help them in their efforts to keep people warm this winter, click here to make a donation.
