Ski Freeze 2020 Raises $25,000+ For Dreams

Thanks to our Title Sponsors (listed above) for their generosity in making Dreams Come True.

The Ski Freeze was a huge success on New Year’s Day. This is a record amount raised with record breaking crowds, more motorcycles attendees than ever and 31 skiers who took the plunge in the Mississippi River all with one goal…help the Dream Factory grant more dreams to critically and chronically ill children in the mid-south.

Our sincere thanks to everyone who participated, attended and volunteered to make this day so memorable. We look forward to a better event in 2021…until then, ski warm.


On Monday, December 9, 2019, the Shelby County Metro Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Lodge 35 presented the Dream Factory of Memphis with a donation of $10,000.  These funds are proceeds from their Annual Golf  Scramble held on October 7, 2019 held at Quail Ridge Golf Course, which includes funds from an anonymous donor, who generously matched the money they raised that day.

In addition to dedicating their lives to serve and protect the community, they manage to find time in their schedule and room in their hearts to help the Dream Factory of Memphis with this annual event.  Over the years, they have put smiles on so many of the special children we serve.  Please join us in saying “thanks” to the FOP Lodge 35!

Bartlett Fire Department Annual Pancake Breakfast

Grants Another Dream

For over 20 years, the Bartlett Fire Department has partnered with our chapter to grant a dream each year. The funds they raise are from their Annual Pancake Breakfast, which is attended by hundreds of Bartlett, TN residents, as they come to enjoy some of the best pancakes and sausage in town.

This year’s event was held on Saturday, September 19th. Tobias T, our dream child from Nesbit, MS, was able to attend before he departed Memphis International the following day on his Dream Trip to DisneyWorld and his Orlando Experience. His dream was fully sponsored by the Bartlett Fire Department’s Pancake Breakfast and the generous residents of Bartlett who attended.

We want to say thanks to Mayor Keith McDonald , Chief Terry Wiggins and all of his First Responders who always find time to put a smile on a child’s face by making a dream come true!
