Thank you for your support of the 2021 Big Impact Bash. It was a true pleasure to have you with us as together we ignite a Bold Path to a Big Future and empower every child in our community to graduate high school with a plan for the future and a mentor for a lifetime.

I am proud to share this year's event raised roughly $84,000 with 171 guests in attendance - a record breaking fundraiser for our agency. We couldn't have done it without you.

We had some amazing organizations and companies sponsor this event including: The Allsup Family Foundation, Ameren Illinois, Holland Construction, Anders CPA + Advisors, The Gori Law Firm, MG+M Law Firm, Insperity,  Auffenberg Dealer Group, Kim & Wyatt Rawlings, Animal Hospital of O'Fallon, Southern Illinois Police Chiefs Association, Scheffel Boyle, J.F. Electric,  Lucco, Brown, Dawson, & Hertz, The Smiles Family Foundation, and Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale.

Whether you bought a table, sponsored the event, volunteered or raised your paddle in the auction, thank you. It's your generosity that keeps the wheels of this mission turning.

Together we are Defenders of Potential and I can't wait to see you again next year!

With deep gratitude,

Heather Freed, LCSW
