This event is one of four community fundraisers the Shelton Jaycees run each year. Funds raised help the Jaycees run food & clothing drives, sponsor ARC blood drives, support American Cancer Society events, sponsor events for Victims of Domestic Violence, and much more. The Shelton Jaycees appreciate everyone’s support this year and look forward to your support next year. Please help them grow this event more by referring friends family and coworkers!

The Jaycees are also known as the Junior Chamber of Commerce. Started in 1920 in St. Louis MO, the organization has grown to involve millions of people around the world. There are currently 19 local chapters in CT and each one develops their own program of events based on local interests and needs. We provide people between the ages of 21 and 40, an opportunity for personal and professional development through community service and organizational involvement. Members network with other aggressive young people, take part in worthwhile projects, fulfil a need for personal growth, and contribute to society.
