Every year we participate in a service project with an organization in the area of the conference location. Since this year's conference is virtual, so is our fundraiser! Giving to the American Red Cross of Eastern NC will help with many of the rebuilding efforts from hurricanes and tornados that have hit the area. If each conference participant gives just $5.00, we will easily make our goal of $500!
