An inside look at last years gala and fundraiser

Our hearts are filled with joy, peace and love. As we looked out into the audience we were so overjoyed to see heartwarming individuals like you who took the time out of your busy schedule to spend an evening at our 9th Annual Gala and Fundraiser. For the first time in 9 years we were sold out! We could not have done this without you. Because of you, we raised over $77,000 which will impact lives, change trajectories and create more future leaders!

We say Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Happy Holidays to you and your family! Love the NCRF Family

P.S. If you’d like to continue creating outcomes like this, we invite you to join our monthly giving program Dollars 4 Scholars.
