We wish to express our sincere gratitude to those who donated and sponsored in 2017. 

We also had hundreds more who donated items to our thrift store and we thank all of you very much as well, even though your names are not listed.  But you know and we know who you are.  Thank you so much!

Additionally, we thank all the great people who purchased tickets to our 2017 Comedy Night!  Our organization could not do all the good work we do without the generous support of our community!!

And we apologize in case we missed any names of donors or sponsors in 2017.  If you notice your name missing please let us know so we can fix that. 

Thank you

Cookie Powell
