Project SEARCH Fundraiser
The first annual Project SEARCH Fundraiser was huge success.  Thank you to everyone who came out to support the new initiative inProjectSEARCH Fundraiser Kalamazoo.  We had 75 people attend this fundraiser event.  We raised $1,000.00!  It was a beautiful way to end the summer, rejuvenate ourselves, and raise money for a great program.  The money raised will go to support the staff, students, and participating agencies in reaching positive outcomes.  

The fundraiser was possible because of the commitment and service from the staff at HQ Salon and Spa.  For the event coordination and giving us the opportunity to host this event at their salon, I cannot thank Angie Schirripa and Melissa Brockelbank enough.  They provided a one of a kind experience and made it such a fabulous time for our guests.  We definitely need to thank the staff at HQ Salon and Spa for their willingness to give their time and energy to support Project SEARCH.  This would not have been a success without their participation.

Lastly, thank you to those who sponsored this event or donated to the raffle baskets.  The list below is of those individuals or entities that allowed us to put together such great prizes.
