8th annual 'Spread the Dream' fundraiser to benefit The Dream Factory

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - The 8th annual 'Spread the Dream' Wine Tasting, Live & Silent Auction will once again benefit sick children in Eastern Carolina this year who have their dreams granted by The Dream Factory.

'Spread the Dream' is the largest annual fundraiser for Dream Factory NC, a non-profit with a local chapter serving critically and chronically ill children in ENC.

One of the items up for auction will be a football signed by Pittsburgh Steelers' wide receiver Antonio Brown. The ball was brought back to Dream Factory NC by a child whose dream to meet Brown was granted last year. It's signed by Brown and about a dozen other players.

'Spread the Dream' is happening on Saturday, February 3 from 6:30-9:30pm at the Greenville Hilton.

Tickets are $65 each or $120 per couple, in advance or $75 each and $140 per couple on the day of the event.

WITN's own Dave Jordan will serve as emcee for the event alongside Vice President Jerry Fisher.
