We weren't even sure if this night would happen. But you came through in a huge way! Thank you for your support and participation with "Casting Hope, Virtually"! We had a record breaking night that will go a long way toward helping kids of abuse and neglect.
On River Time founder Steve Davis with former camper, Scarlet, and Executive Director, Wendy Garner
The live and virtual event was seen on Facebook, YouTube, and in the Handbid auction app. It featured many of the aspects of our traditional "Casting Hope" event, including inspirational videos, testimonials, musical performances by "Act of Congress", a live and silent auction, and Sponsor a Child.
Did You Catch Our Big Surprise?
Our event culminated with a BIG SURPRISE for our founder, Steve Davis! A "Burning the Note" ceremony was held! An anonymous donor announced he is forgiving the entire mortgage of our On River Time cabin at The Lodge at Palisades Creek! There wasn't a dry eye in the house!
