BOOST 2024
Saturday, April 6, 2024

Thank you for your support in 2020!

The BOOST (short for Bringing Optimism & Opportunity to Students & Teachers) Committee held its annual BOOST Bash in March 2020.  The event looked a little different this year as a virtual event, but as you can see below, the event was another huge success!

Net Proceeds                                                           50359.43
