The event was not only about celebrating but also about learning. Each table was assigned a different service area, allowing attendees to delve deeper into how we support youth in moving from surviving to thriving. Pamphlets provided more information, fostering meaningful conversations and connections (see PDF).

One of the most memorable moments of the luncheon was Remy Styrkowicz's captivating video presentation. Through his storytelling, he vividly depicted the essence of our mission, highlighting the crucial need for support within our community. His portrayal of the 48,000 neighbors who need support underscored the collective effort required to make a meaningful impact, leaving a profound impression on all who viewed it.

We're thrilled to announce that we raised about $32,000, bringing our total to $82,000 with our donor match of $50,000. We're still pushing towards our goal of $100,000, fueled by the momentum of yesterday's gathering.

As we reflect on the event, we're filled with gratitude for everyone who contributed to its success. From the organizers behind the scenes to the attendees who brought their energy and enthusiasm, each person played a vital role in creating a memorable experience.

Looking ahead, we're excited to continue working towards our shared vision of a brighter future for all. To those who attended, thank you for being a part of this special day. And to those who couldn't make it, we hope this recap captures the essence of what made it so remarkable.
