Better late than never! Finally getting back onto Facebook after a short hiatus. We've been very busy! The tremendous results of our 4th Annual Dinner Dance Fundraiser in August show us two things: the need is still great in Avery County, and the giving community is generous and supportive. We look forward to year 5 with much hope.
We are thankful to those who contributed, and to those who helped organize the event, which took place at Elk River Club in Banner Elk. We are grateful to the dedication of the local organizations who support those in need.
