The 2nd Annual Evening Stroll was a huge success. We were blessed with beautiful weather, kind & giving attendees and a lot of fun. Not to mention the food and ambiance were amazing.

An evening like this doesn’t just come together in a day or two and certainly doesn’t happen without the support of so many philanthropic hearts. The Leadership Center has been blessed abundantly when it comes to the businesses, organizations and people who support us.

We would love to thank the following for all they did to make this evening the immense success that it was. Thank you!

The evening ended on the island around bonfires with music, dessert and drinks. It was the perfect way to end such an amazing evening.

The evening’s festivities raised over $6,500.00 towards the refurbishment of our lodge rooms and facility. We are humbled and grateful for all the kindness and support we have received. Thank you to everyone for your unbelievable generosity and for being a part of our story as we continue building the legacy of The Leadership Center.

Thank you.
