Moving Lives Forward From Your Living Room
Date/Time:Thu, 10/18/2012 (All day) - Mon, 12/31/2012 (All day)
The comfort of your own home
We know you love our Gala; so do we
But we also know you’d like a night to be free
So we're taking a year off to give you a break
Do something enjoyable for goodness sake!
We’ll keep sharing our stories of client success
So you can see the good work, without having the stress
Of finding a sitter, a new outfit and ride
Just by staying at home, you can still take pride
In the knowledge that we are still doing the work
From the clinical staff to the front office clerk.
Without the event costs, your gift will stretch farther
And more of your dollars will work even harder
To bring to our clients the service they need,
And deliver the treatment with care and with speed.
Plus, without the fancy meal, you get a full deduction
So, kick up your feet and forget the production!

Your donation makes a difference!
With 35 programs and over 15,000 clients served each year, the Center's needs can vary greatly. Some of the donations from the Moving Lives Forward Gala in 2011 were used to purchase new computers for use in the computer lab at Valley Employment Services. With these new computers, clients seeking employment can learn basic skills, work on resumes and job applications and even conduct virtual interviews.
Additional donations from the event were designated for the Youth & Family Center. These funds can purchase supplies for the community kitchen, provide educational materials to parents, and acquire art supplies and games for children’s activities.
