On behalf of Christian Care, I thank all of the participants, committee members, volunteers and sponsors who made our 3rd Annual Trivia Night such a success. Because of you, we raised over $4,000, which will go toward providing food, shelter and a variety of services to the homeless, survivors of domestic violence, veterans, those with mental illness and those transitioning out of prison -- giving them the foundation they need to transform their lives.

We are grateful to each individual who supports Christian Care and the hundreds of men, women and children we serve. We give special thanks to the organizations that contributed to this event:
