Fundraiser launched for donation to The FAITH Food Pantry for Sandy Hook, CT


I am seeking funding to make a sponsorship donation to the FAITH Food Pantry at the Kindness Dream Ride on it’s way to the Newtown Car Show.

The Newtown Car Show was established in 2010 as a fundraiser for the Faith Food Pantry for Sandy Hook, CT.

The Kindness Dream Ride is a 6.2 mile parade of dream cars led by police, firemen, ambulance, tribute vehicles and motorcycles through beautiful areas of Newtown.

The KDR departs from Newtown High School, ventures through Sandy Hook Center, around the Flagpole on Main St. and down Route 25 to join the Newtown Car Show. Thousands of spectators, with checkered flags in hand, are expected along the KDR route and at the show to join the celebration!

How will this fundraiser be used:

A sponsorship donation will be made that will allow the FAITH Food Pantry to donate food for families within the community so they don’t go hungry.

How am I currently involved?

I am currently registered as a vendor at the show with my start-up hot sauce company, Sam & Oliver. I plan on donating a portion of my proceeds at the conclusion of the show. Being my first year, however, money is very tight and I am unable to make this donation myself as the sponsorship must be made in full, in advance prior to the Dream Ride itself.

“I hope to raise awareness and funding so I can donate to the sponsorship program. Any additional money raised will be given directly to the FAITH Food Pantry as well at the conclusion of the Newtown Car Show.” said Jeff Maginniss, Chief Spice Officer of Sam & Oliver, LLC.

What will I do for backers?

Backers will receive 1 bottles of Sam & Oliver’s Cinder and Stoke hot sauce for every $10 pledged. I will cover the cost of shipping to show my appreciation.

Sam & Oliver’s hot sauces are an all-natural, gluten free, vegan and paleo friendly alternative to commercially mass-produced condiments found in stores today. Sam & Oliver’s sauces are designed and developed right here in Guilford Connecticut, and filled for me in St. Augustine, Florida.

“I know together we can make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Sam & Oliver is all about quality and integrity, and there is no reason anyone should go hungry in the world today. Please help me achieve this goal.” Maginniss said.
