Thank you to all who came to our Empty Bowl Dinner on October 20th!
Our Executive Director, Mark Redmond, wanted to share this note with you about the evening:
The stories you heard that night, the quotes from our youth that you saw on the tables, they all underscore how tough the teenage and young adult years can be, especially when you start out with the deck stacked against you.
But I was so inspired to look around the room that night and see all of you showing up for our youth and letting them know you have their backs.
All told, we raised $57,000 that night thanks to YOU, $14,365 from the giving board alone, and because so much of the food and services were donated, almost all of that will go straight to helping our youth transform their lives.
From all of us, thank you for being a part of such a great night.
P.S., you can see photos of the event on our Facebook page!
