On behalf of the organization, the Booths pledged to “go wherever we are needed, and do whatever comes to hand.” Each year we celebrate our history, our progress and recent successes and share who we are. This fundraising event is a great introduction to our agency and showcases our amazing clients. Opportunities: Event Sponsorship, Table Captain, Attend, Donate
