Thank you!

Your generous contributions to the Annual Fall Gathering auction and raffle helped us raise a record amount for those in need. Last year, the community came together and raised more than double the amount raised the year before for families and individuals facing hardships. 


To all the donors of the auction and raffle items to each individual who purchased or won them at the event, we are grateful for you. Thank you for helping us serve those among us who needs a little help right now.
