Event Sponsors

The proceeds raised will help us fund our signature programs, Food For Kids, and Operation Teddy Bear, and expand our new program Impact Makers, which is urgently needed by teens in our community. By focusing on the practice of empathy, these programs make a significant impact on the most critical local needs including food insecurity, educational inequality, community service, access to mental health resources, and youth social and emotional wellness.
