Who is Simon Sharp and why does this event raise money for these organizations?
Simon Sharp, beloved son of Peter and Tamar Sharp (proprietors of the Fairview Inn) and twin brother of Sophia, touched many lives during his 15 years. Check out this touching article to find out more about Simon's legacy : Simon's Story or watch this video:


"There are those whose radiance is visible on Earth though they have long been extinct. There are people whose brilliance continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living. Those lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way for humankind." -Hannah Szenesh, Hungary
