Happy Thanksgiving!
November 2017
Fayetteville Lip Sync Battle and
Vera Bradley Bingo
Two of ASCC major events took place within two weeks of each other! Take a look at how much fun was had by all who participated.
Gratitude and Opportunity
Thank You!

ASCC would like to give a big, very heartfelt thanks to all the friends, supporters, and volunteers who made The Fayetteville Lip Sync Battle and Vera Bradley Bingo successful events.

Your time, your commitment, and your financial support ensured that both occasions were not only very enjoyable but that they were great contributions to ASCC and the community we serve.

A very special thanks goes out to Sandra Surles for her tremendous help during the 2017 Greek Festival this past September. Thank you, Sandra!
