Proceeds of the children’s festival will benefit The Willow Project.

The Willow Project is a community fund in Greenwich launched in 2017 after the diagnosis of Lynn Willow Gulli. The mission of The Willow Project is to harness the power of community to provide support for local families battling childhood cancer.

All funds raised go towards supporting families through the critical time of cancer diagnosis and initial treatment by absorbing some of the financial burdens brought on by the diagnosis, enabling the family to focus on the recovery of their loved one.

No family should have to face this alone. Since 2017, The Willow Project has raised over $115,000 to support the Gulli family through Lynn’s treatment. The Willow Project hopes to continue to raise funds to help local families of children battling cancer.
