The recent Tulips and Juleps Derby Party was our most successful fundraising

all of the activities, including the corn hole tournament, betting on horses
and the silent auction; designing party favors and table decorations; selling
tickets and sponsorships; and creating the menu and cocktails, all while wearing
beautiful smiles and hats made by STRiVE individuals.
In February 2016, our staff

day site on Fruitvale Court.
Some of our staff members
and indivisuals have felt
a connection to the event
and to Deputy Geer and
have wished to donate to
his family and/or show their
support. They presented
the Geer family with a card,
which was handmade by
our individuals in service.
They were all excited to be
a part of giving back to his
