Kelvin Penn talks Network at the RAIN fundraiser

RAIN Fundraiser:

Exciting Community Support! RAIN hosted a small group of local philanthropists in October  to raise funds in support of our Workforce Development, STEM and COVID response programs. During the event, attendees were reintroduced to the RAIN acronym as it relates to our successful projects implemented over the last two years. We had a great evening of presentations, music and conversations about the future of our community. Thank you to Jan Parker for whipping up the amazing food, and to Landmark AV for the lovely touch of sound, lighting, and technical equipment. Lastly, we want to thank everyone who attended the event and the donors who helped make the night a huge success! Stay tuned for our next fundraiser.
