Congratulations Brackendale! Together we raised $1373.95 and filled a truck full of food items and new toys!

A heart felt thank you to our chefs who arrived at 5:00am to beginning cooking, our front-line and behind the scenes volunteers for all the preparations, organization, and wrapping up that an event of this magnitude requires.
