Giving Back

In 2018 the Silicato Family started The Great Futures Fund, a 501c3 non-profit, to help raise awareness and funds for local youth through supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Delaware local chapters. This local initiative was kicked off with the Inaugural Great Futures Gala in February of 2019 which raised $75,000, with the support of many local businesses and partners, for both the Greater Milford and the Oak Orchard/Riverdale (Millsboro) Boys & Girls Club. The Silicato Family will continue to support the mission of the Great Futures Fund which is to support children who need us most in our community, to reach and realize their full potential. The immediate goal is to help support the much-needed expansion of the Oak Orchard/Riverdale Boys & Girls Club.

Owners, Leanne Prosser and Nicole Miller are the Directors of The Great Futures Fund…a fund to support local youth in need through supporting local Boys & Girls Club Building Expansion initiatives to serve more kids in need in Sussex County. Read about the 2nd Annual Gala here: CLICK HERE
