Our Handprints for Hope luncheon this year was held at the new Fayetteville Public Library’s Event Center. With almost 500 attendees and some very special speakers and guests. The first lady of Arkansas, Susan Hutchinson started off the lunch with a speech followed by keynote speaker, Razorback Gymnastics Head Coach and Olympian Jordan Wieber.
The Helping Hand awards are given to agencies, businesses, and volunteers who have gone above and beyond in their service to the center. Congratulations to Detective Scott O’Dell our Outstanding Agency Partner, Pediatric Dental Associates & Orthodontics, our Outstanding Business Partner, and Dr. Andrew Koehler the CSC’s Volunteer Medical Director and Outstanding Volunteer for being awarded this year’s awards.
The generosity from those in attendance was incredible. Donations from the luncheon rang in at $53,550.65, going directly towards the families the Children’s Safety Center is able to help.
Thank you to our sponsors that make it possible for ALL money raised at this event goes straight to our programs.
