As a not-for-profit organization we hold several fundraisers each year to assist with our operational and capital costs. These funds enables us to continually improve our facility, while expanding and enhancing our programming. 

Dream Vacation Draw

Each year from October to December we sell tickets for chances to win cash and trips to exciting destinations around the globe. Winners have great flexibility to alter the trips or take a cash value. The draws take place monthly during the upcoming year and are held on the first Thursday of the month.
