email-Shine-buttonIt’s time to SHINE!  We would be so honored if you were to join us. This year’s brunch has a fun new twist, a pre and post party.  Time beforehand to get caught up and enjoy mimosas (thanks Barefoot Wines!) and time afterwards to dance it uuuup!  Our program is super sweet this year with some recognition and a really cute thank you video-be intrigued, it’s so cute!
Our community is our heart, our soul and our wellspring of joy. We love love. We love collaboration. We love empowerment, equity and intersectionality. We love, especially, the opportunity to facilitate coalition building, belonging and resiliency. The reason we can thrive is because we are on this journey together.
Join us for our annual all ages community brunch-with a room full of friends to raise support for Q Center and to raise a toast to you. When we talk about shining, we know our collective light shines the brightest. Let’s celebrate it together!
