On a yearly basis, our organization brings together our scholarship recipients and our donor family to celebrate in a warm, inviting picnic atmosphere. We recognize the successes of our recipients as well as the fund's great mission. We have been blessed with great donors who have allowed us to see the fulfillment of our mission grow each year.
