NEWS & Events
We are thrilled and grateful to share the amount raised from this year’s Light up the Night Reimagined fundraising blitz. From September 21 to October 4, through our pour art night, winemakers events, the online auction, and Light up the Night Gala with Brett Kissel, we raised over $90,000.
The world works in mysterious ways, and despite fundraising being more challenging this year and having to completely reimagine the way we do things, we were able to nearly raise as much as we did at the gala in 2019. We are extremely grateful for the support of our community supporters, sponsors, volunteers, and donors! THANK YOU, THANK YOU for supporting our mission.

Local artist Verone Solilo - Artwork by Verone - made a $1248 donation after running her online art auction in May and June of 2020. Funds will go to where they are most urgently needed in the community. Two current priorities are to support the Pregnancy & Beyond Program and to purchase a new cardiac Dash Monitor.
