For Immediate Release

July 14, 2007
Camp Hill, PA


Over 500 Disney Fans made some magic happen this weekend, raising $9000.00 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of America through the DisneyWorldTrivia.com Dream Team Project Silent Auction, held at Fred Block’s MagicMeet in Camp Hill, PA. The auction included over 115 lots of Disney-related theme baskets, collectibles, and experiences.

Tim Devine, photographer and webmaster, generously donated an original 16 x 20” framed print featuring a quote by Walt Disney over a photograph of fireworks at Walt Disney World. Winning bidder Jeff Crosley paid $156.00 for the inspirational print. Tim Devine’s work can be seen and purchased at his website, http://www.themagicinpixels.com.

Since its founding in 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has granted the wishes of over 50,000 children with life-threatening illnesses to visit a Disney Theme Park, and continues to grant over 5,000 Disney-related wishes each year.

The DisneyWorldTrivia.com Dream Team Project was founded by author, webmaster, and podcaster Lou Mongello for the purpose of raising money to grant the wishes children with serious illnesses to visit Walt Disney World. Portions of the proceeds from the sale of all merchandise sold on DisneyWorldTrivia.com, as well as personal donations made by Lou Mongello from sales of the Walt Disney World Trivia Book, donations from DisneyWorldTrivia.com “Family Members” and friends, and the proceeds of special fundraising events run by the Dream Team Project are all used to help make the life of a child a bit brighter during a difficult time for them and their family. All monies raised by the Dream Team Project are given to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of America, through a donations page at http://www.firstgiving.com/dwtdreamteam.

Fred Block’s MagicMeets Fan Gatherings is the largest gathering of Disney fans in the Northeast.
