Guests, families, friends and community members,

As we head into the new year, we want to send a special thank you for making Celebrate Compass such a success. Thank you for your enthusiasm, your volunteerism, and your presence.

We did not know if we could top last year's inaugural celebration, yet the atmosphere and ____ made the night a runaway hit. Donations are still trickling in, and we are pleased to have surpassed our goal of raising $75,000 this fall. An amazing feat and we have you to thank. If you are just now making your philanthropic gifts for the year, please consider us in your plans. If you did not get a chance yet, check out our new video below. It paints a great picture of how special Compass already is.

We are grateful for all of you who volunteered and for the restaurants, businesses, and individuals who donated food, drink, and raffle and auction items (please see our Shout-Outs below).

Thank you for your continued support.
