“Hugs for Brady celebrates its fifth anniversary with this year’s theme Hugging Heroes,” said Sherrie Wells, founder of the Hugs For Brady Foundation. “We are thrilled to partner with the Palace at Somerset Park and the Somerset Patriots for this year’s Ballpark Comic Con. This opportunity will allow local children battling cancer to forget about being sick for just a few hours and enjoy really special moments with all of the wonderful Superheroes they idolize.”
