DAVENPORT, IOWA – Wildwood Hills Ranch is pleased to announce that the 13th Wild About the Child Barn Dance held Nov. 9, 2013 in Davenport raised more than $200,000 to improve the lives of Quad City’s area at-risk youth!
“We feel so blessed as an organization to have such amazing support from the Quad Cities’ area,” Al Lorenzen, CEO explained, “The success of the event is truly a testament to the passion the committee members have for our mission and the generosity of the community!”
Event committee chair, Cindy Quinby said, “The generosity and spirit of this community continues to amaze by helping raise a record amount for the support of at-risk kids in the Quad City area.
