Campaign just shy of target

Thanks to a final push from many community members our 2014 Annual Campaign is just shy of the $1,900,000 goal. 

With the dollars that are in and confirmed and those contributions we know are “in the pipe”, there is a gap of approximately $43,000. Traditional donors who have not yet responded can help us reach our target. Many of these individuals will be called in the next few days leading up to our Touchdown event.  

120 “Everyday Heroes” at $365 are needed to reach this year’s campaign goal. Be an “Everyday Hero”! Please DONATE NOW.

 Join us on Friday, January 23, 2015 at the Jazzbah to find out if we reach our target. The announcement will follow greetings from our Campaign Co-Chairs Dean and Margery Muharrem at 4:30p.m. Pizza and salad courtesy of Original 2 Pizzas will follow the announcement.
