We are optimistic that the golf portion of our Challenger Event will take place as planned.  Even though our evening portion will look a bit different this year, we have developed a contingency plan to enjoy a wonderful dinner and program together virtually.  If you commit to a sponsorship or an underwriting opportunity and the Challenger Event does not take place as anticipated, we will offer a full or partial refund for anyone who requests it. Regardless, we plan on conducting a wonderful program and auction, and we hope that you will join us in securing bright futures.
