Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to all of our members, leaders, volunteers, and friends who participated in this month’s birthday celebration.

We can’t express enough how much your support and generosity keep our community thriving. Whether you attended a local birthday party, shared with friends and family, donated to Rising Tide (and got your party favors!), or simply “liked” one of our posts on social media…

We honestly couldn’t do it without you.

Here is a look at all the celebrations that happened!

All month long we gave away party favors!

To thank those supporting Rising Tide with a financial contribution, we sent special party favors as a big “Thank you!” Different donation amounts received unique party favors, from social media shoutouts to Rising Tide merch. Our top five donors also received full RTS swag bags!

We hosted a special celebratory State of the Union address from President Brittanny Taylor and Executive Director Wendy Zook on Monday, June 24 sharing updates on the community and what’s coming up next.
If you missed it you can still catch the replay!

On Thursday, June 27 we hosted our Virtual Birthday Party for the community. We even gave away prizes to celebrate!
