Heads up! Our regularly scheduled meeting in July is cancelled! Instead, meet our coalition members at 2:30pm on Thursday, July 12th at the Panera Bread on Edgewood Road in Cedar Rapids. On behalf of our fundraising committee, we’ll be discussing plans for our fall fundraising event. If you liked our first annual soireé, come and get the inside scoop on this year’s event!
Car! Just kidding. We can’t offer any prizes quite that amazing.
What we are offering, which is pretty outstanding is a free t-shirt to anyone who volunteers at more than two events with us! After your second event, we’ll present you with a pretty snazzy bright-blue official t-shirt. Aren’t you just a little jazzed? Volunteer with us today!
