The non-profit night was held on March 10, and the Military Appreciation Night was held on March 24.

“It was an honor to team up with Hahne Regional Cancer Center of Penn Highlands Healthcare of DuBois and the Free Medical Clinic of DuBois for our Non-Profit Night,” team owner Albert Varacallo said. “It was a very successful night thanks to our amazing fans. We were able to present them each with a donation check to support both of their missions and causes.”

The United Way Military Appreciation Night, which was the final home game of the season for the Dream, saw the team donate all ticket sale proceeds from the game to the United Way.

“We were also able to present them with a donation check from the proceeds of our merchandise sales as well,” Varacallo said. “We couldn’t be happier to support all three organizations after all of the support we have received from our amazing community and fans.”

Varacallo said it is important to both him and the Dream to be able to do community donations like these.

“I’m fully aware our team would not be successful and would not be where we are without the unbelievable support from the community,” Varacallo said. “I’m very thankful and grateful to be a part of this awesome community, and I’m just doing my best to give back as much as I can.”
