We Love Our Volunteers
Only one person comes forward to help for every ten people who watch. The past two years, as on many previous occasions, you were that one-of-a-kind and selfless individual who stepped up to help us out. Thank you so much for your volunteer work. Even though you’re not in the spotlight, you are the backbone of each and every event. Please know that we could not do this without your hard work. We are forever thankful for the time you have given us. You have made an unforgettable difference. We are delighted to have you on board. You are simply amazing. Pleas help us in saying “Thank You” to all our wonderful volunteers pictured below and the ones who wished to not have a picture put in.
