    Friends Helping FRIENDS at our 2017 Gala “Justice for Children”

    Orchid Isle Ford in conjunction with Ziebart and KTA SuperStores headlined our Signature Sponsor Tables.   A grand time was had by all and the FRIENDS were proud of such generous community support. Couldn’t do it without our friends!

    And then later in the year, Home Street Bank joined the Friends as a Signature Sponsor for our first annual “Mai Tai Masquerade”!

    Friends Helping The Friends

    So many people support the FRIENDS with contributions large and small. We couldn’t do it without you! We’d like to take this time to thank Joe Hanley at Orchid Isle Ford who was a signature sponsor at our second annual Gala Dinner. Joe is not only a supporter, he was our non-profit’s first Board President and shepherded us from a group of well meaning business people into our fully recognized 501(c)(3) status. Thank you, Joe and Orchid Isle Ford!

The Akaka Falls Lions Club (another honorée of our 2019 Gala) have helped clean, paint, repair and “spruce up” the Center over many years.
