August 7
The Dream Factor’s largest fundraiser, the Boulevard of Dreams,  will take place on August 7th.  The Dream Factory has grown into the second-largest children’s wish-granting organization in the United States, granting over 25,000 dreams since its inception –all while maintaining a grassroots approach.  The Dream Factory continues to operate all 38 of its local chapters with over 5000 very dedicated volunteers.  These hard-working individuals raise funds within their own communities and then use those funds to grant the dreams of local children.   Panera Bread will donate cookies for the fundraiser from our Deer Creek location in Overland Park.
