Westport Winter Wonderland to Benefit Children and Teens

Winter Wonderland 2021 is a family fun event that will take place on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at the Westport Police Athletic League Rink at Westport LongShore Club Park, 260 Compo Road South, Westport, from 4:00 pm until 9:00 pm.

This event is hosted by three amazing nonprofits, Al’s Angels, LivFree, and the Westport Police Athletic League (WPAL). Al’s Angels provides support to children and families battling cancer, rare blood diseases, natural disasters and several financial hardships. LivFree provides smiles to pediatric cancer patients and their families by offering an unforgettable experience that gives them a break from treatment, so they may enjoy a fun and memorable time together.

Westport Police Athletic League (WPAL) is run by active and retired police officers and community volunteers and has over 2,000 children in youth athletic programs; WPAL awards more than 25 undergraduate scholarships annually. This event will benefit all three nonprofits and the children and teens they serve.

Winter Wonderland 2021 is a kick off to the holiday season and includes ice skating, a visit from Santa, holiday carolers, a campfire, courtesy of the Westport Fire Department, and so much more! Tickets to the event are free but there is a fee to skate; the cost is $20 per adult and $15 per child. Tickets are available for purchase at the door and parking is available at no charge.

Dan Viera, President of LivFree said, “This event is a great way for families to gather for some good old fashioned fun! This is the second year we have partnered with Officer Craig Bergamo and Westport’s Police Athletic League (WPAL) and the first year we welcome Al DiGuido, founder of Al’s Angels.

We will also have a drop box for toy donations at the event for Al’s Angels toy drive. COVID19 forced us to cancel the event in 2020 so we are thrilled to be able to host the event this year. We are also hoping that Winter Wonderland becomes an annual event and tradition in Fairfield County for years to come.”

This event would not be possible without our sponsors: Zach Barratt, Interstate & Lakeland Lumber, IPAE Insurance Claims and Modern Dermatology. We are so grateful for their support of this family fun event, all three nonprofit organizations and, most importantly, the children and teens that benefit.

Winter Wonderland 2021 is still in need of sponsors and donations.  If you are a local business or resident and are interested in sponsoring this fun family event, or simply want to make a donation, please click, here
