Our Virtual Sunset Hour Event Was a Great Success!
Thank you to everyone who took part.

If you weren’t able to make the live event, you can still watch the video anytime.
And it is never too late to donate! Our need is still great.

*Warning that our Sunset Hour turned into a Sunset Hour and a Half!

    With so much uncertainty right now, we know that many people are unable to give. Whether you can give this year or not, we thank you for following us and standing with us. There have been hundreds of businesses and individuals who have contributed amazing auction items/experiences/services over the years. We couldn’t do an auction this year and we couldn’t imagine asking any of them to donate right now. We hope everyone will support them with business during these difficult times. They all give so much to the community year in and year out – donating to countless charities. We need to help them now if we can.
    During times like these we count our blessings and are so grateful for this amazing community.
