Event Announcement

In 2021 we had planned an in-person Gala on March 6th but due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 we will be moving to another format that will allow for the higher levels of community participation.


We are excited to use this opportunity to look at new avenues of fundraising and we will share our plans the coming weeks.


We are excited for the future and hope that you will continue to be at our side as we look for ways to make an impact in our schools and the community.

Please register now for the event or donate today!
