2 September Virtual Backpack

We are in the process of planning our annual SOAR development dinner, which is on Saturday, November 19th. SOAR is our largest fundraising event, and its proceeds have a major impact on tuition costs and operational expenses. There are many ways you can help as we prepare for this special event. One way is to support our auction and we are in great need of items! You can donate gift cards, silent and live auction items, or make a monetary donation. Please consider purchasing an item off of our Amazon Wishlist. The Wishlist provides you with exact standalone auction items you can purchase, and Amazon will send the donation directly to the school! Click the link to view the Auction Wishlist. Donations of all sizes are welcome and appreciated!

Sponsorships are also a great way to support SOAR. If you know of a business that may be interested, please let us know. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
