The event will include lunch and an hour-long program featuring stories from students and alumni, as well as a vocal performance from a recent YOTO graduate now attending the University of Arizona.

Homeless & Hospitalized Veterans
The VA would very much appreciate receiving winter weight clothing for both women and men. The need for travel-sized toiletries continues throughout the year. Because our next program is the Fashion Show, we ask that you do not bring donations for the VA to that event. Items may be left at Laura Colbert’s house, 2040 E Cypress Canyon Drive. or at Peggy McGee’s, 1908 E Longspur Place. If you leave items, please indicate if you want a receipt for tax purposes along with your name, address, phone number and approximate value of your donation.
