Registration is NOW OPEN! CLICK HERE to complete your online registration!
A lot of people have asked about teams for the spring fundraiser. You do NOT need to organize a team prior to the event. We wanted to keep it pressure-free and casual. You will be sitting at tables of 8, but they will not be pre planned / assigned groups. You can sit wherever you want and with whoever you want. We want everyone to be able to mix and mingle and meet new people.

The fundraiser is still in need of volunteers, please Carrie or Michelle if you are interested. Thank you!
