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.
