Quigg fundraiser on tap in New Preston
A special event, “Queens and Quigg,” a Sunday brunch, will take place June 24 from noon to 4 p.m. in New Preston.
The event, which will take place at the New Preston Women’s Club at 27 Church St., will benefit Sean Quigg, of New Milford, who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
KBJB Radio/TV, in conjunction with Pride Entertainment & Events, will present Long Island’s Ivy Stalls, as well as Bella Noche, Olivia London and Annie Manildoo.
The event, which is for those 21 and older, will also feature unlimited mimosas, vendors, raffles and more.
Duchenne muscular dystrophy has, over time, forced Quigg to utilize a wheelchair, and he has extremely limited use of his arms.
However, Quigg doesn’t let that hold him back. He has spent years raising money for others who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy with a nonprofit called Spaghetti Arms, as well as for local causes.
Earlier this year, Quigg was the victim of a two-car accident that occurred when an elderly driver pulled into oncoming traffic, leaving no time for Quigg’s personal care assistant to stop the van safely.
The impact totaled Quigg’s wheelchair-accessible van and caused him to break his left hip and right femur, leaving him in the hospital with excruciating pain.
He is doing better, but healing slowly.
Proceeds from the event will help Quigg get a new handicapped equipped vehicle.
Tickets are $45.
