Colton Amster operates Redline Restorations, an automotive restoration facility in Bridgeport, Connecticut. In addition, Colton Amster has supported the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
On May 14, 2016, Make-A-Wish Connecticut hosted the annual Walk For Wishes at Beardsley Zoo to celebrate its 30th year. More than 1,000 people attended the walk, which sought to raise funds for children with life-threatening illnesses. In total, the donations amounted to $70,000, enough to fulfill the wishes of seven children.
The MCs of the event were Anna from Star 99.9’s Anna & Raven Show Mornings and Kristi Olds from News12 Connecticut. More than 30 kids whose wishes had been granted attended the opening ceremony so that they could share their experiences with the guests.
The event also featured a celebration of the wishes of Max and Nicholas, seven-year-old Stamford twins who are fighting a life-threatening illness. Nicholas wanted to go to Atlantis, which he did in April, while Max wanted to meet the Nascar Driver, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., which he was set to do in the near future.
