It’s our way of reminding you – if you volunteered, if you gave 5 bucks or 5,000, if you shared our emails or Facebook posts – that we can’t do this without you. Come celebrate our accomplishments and plan our future successes, with good food and great friends!

This year’s dinner will be May 26th at 5:30 p.m., at Ginter Park Presbyterian Church. RSVP today!

The evening will include music, recognition of youth peace leaders, and a raffle. The meal will include salads and desserts made by Peace Center board members.
