Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who helped us make our mission To Mars and Beyond so special! Here are just a few of the people who we’d like to thank specifically:

Thank you to Evelyn Vann and Cathy Karr for making our evening meals and to everyone who donated food.

Thank you Danny White for co-directing and running our audio/visual technology. Thank you also for fundraising so much money through social media. We really couldn’t have financed it without your hard work.

Thank you to Augusta Fleming for helping our kids create amazing crafts. Your passion for creativity was infectious. Thank you Jane Edwin for your support as well!

Thanks to Dayna Cooper for co-directing, leading music, and doing science experiments with the kids. Science was one of the kids’ favorite parts of the day!

Thank you Linda O’Riley and Pastor Gaye Bosley-Mitchell for leading Bible Storytime. You made the stories engaging for all our kids. Thanks also Pastor Gaye for stepping in and leading recreation. The kids always begged to play the games again at the end of the day!

Thank you Tina Riesterer for being willing to help out in any way you could. Violet was not the only one blessed to have you there! We all were!

Finally, thank you to all of our teen volunteers who made the experience even more fun for our kids! (Shoutout to Lexi, Kat, and Lily!)
