Greetings from your Volunteer Manager and Events Coordinator, Andrea. Are you tired of me yet? OmMGosh! So am I! Hahaha!
I would like to shout out to Dave and Busters GM Jason, Op Manager Jeremy, and Events Specialist Stevie for the amazing evening they sponsored for our community. We had a banquet room, a prize wheel with so many prizes, a photo back-drop, music videos, and 2 wonderful wait-staff. The food and drinks were on point. We had a little over 40 community members show, candy goodie bags (thank you my parents), door prizes, and my heart was over flowing. Thank you to all that participated, you made this evening off the charts for us. We truly received the royal treatment, and we are forever grateful to Dave & Busters. We can't wait for the next one!
I'd like to thank our Founder Jason, who has been keeping our organization going since 2001. When I came on in September 2018, I did not know what to expect. Jason has given me so much positivity, and encouragement. I am learning so much from him, and appreciate him and his faith in me. He's not allowed to take a vacation, yet. Hahaha!
