Celebrate Life Event

Thank you to all who joined us on Friday, September 29 to Celebrate Life!

Michelle Pett and Andrea Woodard,  honorary co-chairs for On With Life's third annual fundraising and recognition event, Celebrate Life, thank the more than 250 individuals and businesses that joined us on September 29 for Starry Night - a celebration of On With Life's stars. 

Funds raised through the Celebrate Life event will help provide life-changing treatment for persons served - the true shining stars. Contributions to this year's event will enhance On With Life programs through the support of the outdoor therapeutic grounds project, specialized therapy equipment and family support needs.

Individuals and businesses helped to make Celebrate Life a success by sponsoring the event and/or joining On With Life for the evening! It was a true celebration and an evening full of food, drinks, music, and powerful stories.
