JT’s Way Gala a Success

Over the weekend. The JT’s Way held its first Gala event.

This non-profit organization was started by Tonya Wigglesworth after her son, J.T., passed away in 2019. The organization works directly with funeral homes to financially assist families who have lost a child. 

“The participation in everything from donations for the auction, all the way to Saturday night just blew me away. For it to be our first gala, I could not have been more pleased.” Wigglesworth noted that an estimated 100 community members were in attendance. The biggest auction item was of course the third generation Camaro, completed by Tom Pitt, an instructor at EC3.

“It did sell for $8,000. So, we purchased the car for $2,500 and everything that was done and put into it was donated. Time and items and things like that. For that to be the big ticket item, it definitely did not disappoint.”

Another gala is already in the works for next year, but a date has not been set.
