Project Joy is an event that was started by an man I had the honor to work with on the Thanksgiving Day Buffet Committee, Patrick Plys. Even while battling brain cancer his concern was for others. Especially, children who went hungry without access to food. Patrick sadly lost his battle, but not before he told his wife, "he chose Joy". Thus, Project Joy was developed and has continued to be fueled by the passion of Patrick's friends, family and a generously supportive community.
