We Are The Children
We Are The Children is an organization founded in 1985 by Gary Craig, morning radio personality of 96.5 WTIC-FM in Hartford, Connecticut. Gary Craig, along with a tremendous support committee including various corporations is committed to raising funds for abandoned, battered, disadvantaged, and needy children. To date, We Are The Children is a 100% volunteer organization with all goods and services donated by members of the local communities.
We Are The Children continues to support children and their families bringing the spirit of the holidays to Connecticut’s kids, one child at a time.
96.5 TIC and Maneeley’s are proud to announce an evening with Buddy Valastro from TLC’s Cake Boss and Next Great Baker!
