The SFT Awareness Fundraising Dinner was a great success! We would like to thank Steven Guy for coming out and speaking at our dinner. We also want to thank everyone who volunteered their time to prepare food, set-up and clean-up the dinner. We raised over $2,000 and are grateful to everyone who participated. This helped us get closer to our goal of $11,000 for this quarter. In order to meed our goal, we still need $9,000. If you would like to help us reach our budget, look to the right side of our home page and click “Donate”. Also, you can send a check made out to SFT Awareness to P.O. Box 366/LaVergne, TN 37086.
