Founders Dinner and 20th Anniversary Celebration

Our Founders Dinner was a great success! What a wonderful way to show our appreciation to the Founders and Past Directors. Our guest speaker, Chad Shipmaker, inspired us with his speech on the Origins and History of Philanthropy. Thank you to everyone who joined us in celebrating our 20th Anniversary!
