 Halloween on Ambush 

Congratulations on Winning ABC’s Great Halloween Fright Fight which aired on Sunday, October 29th. Up against three other home haunts, Tony DeMatteo’s incredibly display was selected as the best. His family received the prized pumpkin trophy and a financial award.

We are incredibly proud and honored to be a part of this fabulous community event.

The 40 minutes stand-and-watch Pirate themed “Home Haunt” included  lights, sound/music, and pyrotechnics.

 Halloween on Ambush select sizes/quantities of t-shirts still available.

The Dream Factory of Rochester was chartered in the fall of 1998 with our first dream being fulfilled in May 1999 when Autumn, a 7 year old girl from Brockport, NY living with spinal muscular atrophy, traveled to Orlando, Florida with her mother. Today we have fulfilled over 320 dreams in our community. We have sent many children to Central Florida, NYC, California, Arizona, and tropical islands. We have provided children with televisions, computers, pools, hot tubs, room makeovers, and shopping sprees. We have introduced children to sports celebrities, musicians, actresses, and creators of television shows. Their dreams are as varied as the children we meet and the challenges they face.

If you would like to learn more about our local chapter, nominate a child, host a fundraising event, or join us at our monthly meeting.
Typically at 7pm the 3rd Monday of  each month via Zoom.
