We have some interesting news for the end of the year.

Get Your Glam On and pay close attention to the Giving Tuesday event, which actually starts today, November 24th. There are quite a few lovely items up for bid, including a stay in Kauai, Hawaii. The Virtual Regional Meeting was a huge success and Development Grant and Education Award deadlines are approaching. Keep Reading for the full information on these topics and many more!
