March GRADness

Thank you for being a sponsor (or purchasing tickets) for our Sixth Annual March GRADness fundraiser. We will not be hosting our event as planned on Monday, April 6, 2020. We, like so many in the country, are doing our best in the COVID-19 pandemic. In light of the restrictions on large gatherings, the need for social distancing, and our desire to do what is in the best interest of our staff, volunteers, and donors, we have decided to postpone the event. We look forward to celebrating with you all at a later date!
