Smart Start is excited to be creating an innovative hybrid model for this fundraising event. Communications and Development Director, Carrie Ann Chandler had this to say.
“We are dedicated to keeping our community safe and we miss our network of support. We are excited to have created a safe hybrid model to still serve our community and raise needed funds.”
All proceeds go to benefit the work of Smart Start Partnership for Children. Smart Start is working to build a strong foundation for the youngest members of our community.
