Our 19th annual “Attitude of Gratitude” was held virtually on Saturday, November 21, 2020.  Our event netted over $119K which is just shy of our 5-year average of $125K. In an unprecedented pandemic year, we were very pleased with the amount that was raised for our life skills programming for women & children who are experiencing homelessness.

Many thanks to our sponsors, cash and auction item donors and to all of our bidders! We are truly grateful to our hosts Bobbi Earles & Jeff Vaassen, our production crew led by Craig Schaefer.  If you missed the fun, check out our YouTube link  to hear our speakers Joe Chlapaty, Mayor Roy Buol, and our resident speaker Morgan, who shared her program success story.  If you missed the event, you can click on the YouTube link below.

During our virtual event, Joe & Linda Chlapaty unveiled a new Sr. Helen Huewe Memorial Endowment.  Joe & Linda have generously contributed $150K to start the endowment which will be unveiled in the spring of 2021!

Save the date for Saturday, November 20, 2021 for our 20th annual “Attitude of Gratitude.”  We hope to be back at the Grand River Center!
