Sip, Sample & Support!

THANK YOU!

Once again, our annual Wine & Beer Festival was a great success! Thank you for your generous contribution to our event. In addition to providing essential funding, it was an excellent opportunity for our friends and
supporters to learn more about the valuable work we do.
 
Your generosity helps us to grow and continually develop programs and
initiatives that will help to provide the people we support with the highest quality of life. We are proud to report that 100% of donated dollars are
used for programming, never toward operating costs. We strive to
maintain a robust donation reserve fund, which is used for providing the individuals we support with services, equipment and experiences
beyond the scope of what their financial status allows. Additionally, our
fundraising allows us to operate our Community Outreach Program,
which provides social and recreational opportunities for both the
individuals we support and others with disabilities in our neighborhoods.
 
We are so grateful for the support of the businesses and individuals like
you in the community that believe in our mission. We look forward to
sharing our future successes with you.
