Hayden Chipley Night Of Heroes Fundraiser

Event organizers Shannon Gardner and Barrie Hughes.

It was a full house Saturday, May 18 for Hayden’s Night of Heroes, where the community supported first grader Hayden Chipley, who has a rare disease called eosinophilic esophagitis. There was a silent auction, raffle and buffet dinner held at the First Baptist Church of Wellington. The event brought in more than $13,000, which will be used for Hayden’s expenses not covered by insurance. To support the family, send donations to Hayden’s Heroes, c/o Sun Trust Bank, 12870 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington, FL 33414.
