2022 Supporters

Thank you to our family of contributors, funders and volunteers, both big and small, who help us move on up year after year!

Metro East Industries, Inc. (MEI) and the Ortyl family keep moving on up with us! In 2022, we welcomed Jenny Dolce from MEI as our new board president. Jenny and her family’s business continue to be one of our most supportive corporate partners and philanthropic families. During MEI’s annual holiday giving campaign, their team raised more funds than ever before. From the annual memorial golf tournament to a slew of matching sponsorships, we are incredibly grateful for their continued support and partnership year after year.
