2016 WOWO Brigadoon Fitness Penny Pitch Donates $170,204.13 To Super Shot, Inc.

Super Shot, Inc. is thrilled to announce the receipt of a check in the amount of $170,204.13 from the 2016 WOWO Brigadoon Fitness Penny Pitch fundraiser.

Super Shot staff and Board Members are ecstatic to have been chosen by WOWO and Brigadoon Fitness as benefactors for such a long-standing and popular donation campaign like Penny Pitch. Over the past several years, we have seen an increase in the number of vaccinations requested even though private donations have struggled to keep up. The money raised by Penny Pitch is exactly the “shot in the arm” that we need to continue supporting our community,” said Doug Samuels, Chairman, Super Shot Board of Directors

The Board of Directors and Staff of Super Shot would like to thank the listeners of WOWO, Brigadoon Fitness, the volunteers, and everyone who donated to the 2016 WOWO Brigadoon Fitness Penny Pitch fundraiser. The overwhelming amount of generosity shown this year will allow Super Shot to continue providing childhood immunizations for uninsured, underinsured and Medicaid-enrolled children — birth through 18 years old — as well as continuing to provide immunizations for uninsured and underinsured adults.
