As a reminder, we would greatly appreciate any goods or services you or your company would be willing to donate. Many of our families have donated either a $25 gift card to one of their favorite stores/restaurants or a nice bottle of wine. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3), so your donations are tax deductible. Please try to have your items or donations to either me or the front office before October 1st. The juniors thank you for your support!
