Thank you!

We are overwhelmed with gratitude as we tally up the funds raised from this year’s Taste of Spring Event. Over $32,000 was raised in just a single night. We want to extend an enormous thank you to those who showed up in support. Without you, our mission wouldn’t be possible.

A very special thank you to our dedicated sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and community members that made this night a success. Your kindness is changing lives.

Your contributions from this year’s event will directly support our community programs within the county, as well as provide victims of domestic violence and sexual assault the assistance and resources needed to rebuild.
