2021 Annual Compassion Fundraiser!

Thursday, September 30th – 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Although we were saddened our 2020 fundraiser had to be cancelled, we appreciate so many of you supporting us in many ways since the pandemic began.  We missed seeing you last year!

We will continue to assess pandemic conditions and CDC guidelines over the next several weeks and keep you informed if any of our plans change.
