Despite the freak snow storm, the Miracles for Molly fundraiser 'Cause a Commotion for Molly!' drew a sizable crowd to the 2FatGuys Hockessin location on Monday, Jan. 21.
Chef Tom Craft acquired some of the hottest peppers in the world, and made a once in a lifetime sauce he called "The Commotion". For $15, supporters got an order of Commotion wings and a souvenir t-shirt. All proceeds went to the Miracles for Molly Dunne Foundation.
The Miracles for Molly Foundation is setting out to help families with children who are working with Palliative Care at Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, where Molly received much of her care. Palliative Care provides for the comfort and quality of life issues surrounding a child who has a long-term or life threatening illness. "We would like to help them by supporting them with monetary donations where needed, and provide non-medical services where we can," Erin Lacey said, who is a close family friend of the Dunne family.
Kristen Dunne, Molly's mom, said that the palliative care unit provided so much comfort to Molly, so it is only natural for her family to want to give back. "For us, the comfort and support provided by palliative care made a big difference at the end of Molly's life. We want other families to have that experience too," Kristen said.
Keith Dill from North Wilmington ordered the Commotion wings, and worked up a good sweat. "These are the hottest wings ever," he said.
Peter Lauser could not finish his five Commotion wings. "I eat wings a lot, but not this hot."
Justin Cook suffered through the pain and the burning of the wings for one sole purpose: "This is for you Molly!"
After the fundraiser the wing totals were tallied. The fundraiser raised a total of $890, with 44 orders of wings purchased.
