We want to thank volunteer, Char Kutcha for creating the fantastic gift bags and baskets and for holding this online auction to help end the stigma of mental illness.
Many thanks go out to all of our volunteers, donors, sponsors, board members, and staff for your efforts to make our first virtual fundraiser come together! So far, with just 44 individually registered participants, 14 teams, and about a dozen local sponsors, we have reached $20,760! It’s not too late to boost our final total – walk donations received through October 31, will be added to those numbers.
Red Ribbon Week Oct 23 – 31, 2020
Red Ribbon Week raises awareness of drug use and the problems related to drugs facing our community and encourages parents, educators, business owners, and other community organizations to promote drug-free lifestyles. In 1985, Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Enrique S. Camarena was killed by drug traffickers. Shortly after his death, citizens from his hometown of Calexico, California, began wearing red ribbons to remember him and commemorate his sacrifice. The first official Red Ribbon Week celebration was created by the National Family Partnership in 1988. NFP continues to coordinate the campaign for families, schools, and communities across the nation each year. Since then, the red ribbon has symbolized a continuing commitment to reducing the demand for illicit drugs in our communities.
