While we had many successes in 2021, it was also a challenging year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Like many organizations, we had to adapt to the new reality of social distancing and remote work. This posed fundraising challenges, and we had to postpone our Tomorrow Never Dies Gala, which has now been rescheduled for Fall 2022. We look forward to a fantastic time and hope you can join us on our mission to help marginalized youth. We also had some changes to our board of directors in 2021. We welcomed a new board president, Aaron Riley, and a new Treasurer, Lori Brennan. Dan Menser also joined our board and joined our meetings remotely from Seattle. We are excited to have them on board and look forward to their leadership and guidance in the future.
