We are accepting applications to be our 2019 Fund-A-Dream grant recipient from now until Friday, March 1! The Paul’s Pals Fund-A-Dream (FAD) grant will be highlighted at our annual gala in July. The funds raised from the FAD portion of our event are typically between $10,000-$15,000 and are dependent on the presentation the organization makes for our donors.
