The Hoffman family of Wilton has been dedicated to supporting the Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley ever since the facility assisted them when their son, Dylan, spent extended times in the hospital. Over the last two years, Wilton has, without hesitation, helped this young family in their efforts to memorialize 3-year-old Dylan after he passed away in 2014.

Once again, the Hoffmans are spearheading local efforts to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House as part of Dylan’s legacy. Each year they raise money through an annual fundraising walk that is named in honor of their son. On Sunday, Sept. 25, they will once again take part in the 2nd Annual Dylan J. Hoffman Memorial Walk.

As she has done the last two years, Dylan’s mom, Caroline Hoffman, will be holding a bake sale outside the Village Market, this Sunday, Sept. 18 from 3-7 p.m.. She is always touched by the generosity of the Wilton community, and how quick it is to help, as typified by the immediate response some people had after reading the stories published in GOOD Morning Wilton about her efforts. Her first bake sale in 2014 raised over $1,000 in four hours.

I remember last year a woman saw the piece when she got home and came right down to donate,” she recounts. The first year of the bake sale, she made over $1,000 in just a few hours.

“The generosity was overwhelming and the support shown shortly after Dylan had passed was incredible. We are truly grateful to live in a community that is so charitable,” she says.

To support Caroline’s bake sale, stop by the Village Market between 3-7 p.m. on Sunday. To donate or join the Hoffman’s team for the walk, visit their team page.
