It was an incredible night of support, raising $495,000 for our vital programs for our community’s homeless youth! Your belief in the futures of these valuable but vulnerable young folk is what makes our work possible. As the number of young people who walk through our doors continues to grow rapidly, your investment is vital to help instill safety, nourishment and learning opportunities.

You made our event so successful, and you looked great doing it! Here’s the facebook pix and here’s the photobooth pix!
