“We exceeded our fundraising goals in February at our Time, Talent, & Treasure Auction. We usually give $1,000 to each recipient. The goal was to give $1,500 this year. We exceeded our goal and were able to give $1,700 to each recipient, which is just fabulous,” exclaimed outgoing President Jacky Childress.
