Thank you to everyone who contributed to raising more than $400,000 to fund life-saving programs for our neighbors in need of a hand. We hope you will join us as a guest or sponsor next year.

Costa Rican Adventure for Two

We randomly selected a winner of the Costa Rican vacation raffle live during the 2024 Lend a Helping Hand Brunch held on March 3. The lucky winner wishes to remain anonymous. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets. The raffle raised more than $30,000 to help fund our meal, clothing, and shelter programs. We plan to hold another raffle in 2025 so stay tuned!
