Give Thanks & Give Back 2015

Enjoy wine tasting, heavy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, and a photo walk exhibiting a “Year in the Life of Horton’s Kids” at this year’s Give Thanks and Give Back, emcee’d by 94.7 FM, The Tommy Show’s Tommy McFLY and Kelly Collis!

The event, now in its 8th year, will help Horton’s Kids connect youth with the support they need to prepare, apply, and enroll in college as they work toward high school graduation. Your support will help Horton’s Kids provide college tours, job training programs, career awareness activities, SAT/ACT prep, assistance with applications and scholarships, and more. This means more children achieving, more children graduating, and more children going to college and getting jobs!
