Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
Our largest fundraiser, the Annual Buddy Walk, will now be a Drive-Thru Parade, rather than a walk that attracts more than 2,200 persons each year. We are hoping our teams initiate fundraising efforts for this new event. In addition, our Purse Bingo, slated for March 2020, was canceled due to COVID. This was painful as it was sold out with 450 women buying tickets to attend. In its place, we are turning this event into a Purse Raffle that will be posted on Facebook. Our two largest fundraisers are greatly impacted. We use these events to fund our programs and services for persons with Down syndrome in the Valley.
