EAST HARTFORD, Conn.,- The Pratt & Whitney-sponsored Bradley Space & Aviation Day attracted more than 4,000 community members to raise money for the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, Conn.

The event, coordinated by Bradley Family Day, Inc., was held Saturday, July 14. Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX) company.
“The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is extremely grateful for Pratt & Whitney’s leadership of Bradley Space & Aviation Day,” said Michael Smiles, director of development at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. “Together we celebrate our community, the sharing of our mission and the joy of camp with 24 seriously ill children.”
