A message from our President/CEO
What an amazing What a Girl Wants featuring In Her Shoes fundraiser we had this year.  I would like to thank the vendors, the walkers, the volunteers, our sponsors and the attendees for making this year such a fun and successful event.

Some additional thank YOUS to the live show performers, The Brevard County Sheriff's Officers, The Brevard County Firefighters, and Rockwell Collins Executives. What a great show you put on.  It truly gets better and better each year.

Thanks to the part you all played in our event.  This event allows us to help fund our programs and services offered to those staying with us.  In addition, it assists with purchasing food and the necessities needed for our survivors.  We truly are saving lives here in Brevard County and can not do it without your kindness and support.

Warmest Regards,
Melody R. Keeth
President/CEO
