We are overwhelmed with gratitude for those that sponsored, donated, and volunteered their time to make CLC's 9th Annual Banquet and Fundraiser such a huge success! The thoughtfulness by our supporters will enable us to continue ministering to hundreds of middle and high school students each year and it truly means so much to us. We could not be more inspired by you generosity and dedication to CLC's purpose, and we we cannot thank you enough for having faith in what we do and for investing in our mission. We hope that everyone that attended the banquet will continue to be part of our journey. We look forward to celebrating with you what the Lord has and is doing at our future events!
