“Zumbox” rocked Hyper Fight & Fitness!!!
Junior Board of the Polish American Association held its first fundraiser on April 7, 2014. The fundraiser was a huge success and generated over $1000 in donations. Andrzej Fonfara and Magdalena Huk “Dzika” from Dzika Fitness brought the community together to fight domestic violence. Over 60 people appeared at Hyper Fight & Fitness and participated by dancing Zumba and doing Dzika Xtreme Fitness. It was intense but so worth the cause! For about two hours, everybody was pushed to their limits to help children raised in the domestic violence households. At the end, Andzej Fonfara auctioned his gloves, and the lucky auctioneer paid $200 for them. All the proceeds from the tickets sale and the auction were donated to fund domestic violence therapy program offered at the Polish American Association. The event was a lot of fun, and the Junior Board is excited to make this an annual tradition!

Pączki Day - 2014 - Thank You All for Supporting Our Mission!
It may have been cold outside, but it was heartwarming to see our community coming together for the 2014 Pączki Day fundraiser on Fat Thursday, February 27th. By joining us on the traditional Polish feast, you helped us raise over $7,000. All proceeds from the event went to assist over 10,000 individuals and families through our 28 programs.
In partnership with the Oak Mill Bakery, Polish Radio 1030AM, Polvision, and Taxes – the Financial Services Corp., we sold over 2,385 pączki. We are very grateful for your generous contributions, tireless volunteering, and uplifting advocating on behalf of the most vulnerable in our community.
We hope you enjoyed these traditional Polish treats. Special congratulations to those who found beautiful jewelry! We appreciate the trust you place in PAA to care for the helpless in our community. Thank you for your support! See you in 2015!
