Dream Come True of Western Connecticut, which serves the New Milford area, will host a fundraising event Sept. 7 at Tasty Waves in New Milford.

The event will run from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the 7 Main St. business, with a portion of the day's sales to benefit the organization.

For the past 30 years, the nonprofit has been fulfilling dreams for chronically, seriously and terminally ill children.

It is volunteer-run and services Litchfield, Fairfield and New Haven counties.

It is only through grants, the support of local businesses and individual donations that the organization can fulfill the children's dreams.

The dreams of approximately 25 children annually become reality. Dreams include travel, room makeovers or new electronic equipment for a homebound child because of their illness.

The organization also raises funds at its annual spring gala and a fall golf outing, scheduled this year for Sept. 29 at the Redding Country Club.
