All services are free and confidential to anyone in need and funded by supporters just like you!

Eeek, we have other commitments! Can we come late? - Yes! The door is open to coming and going all night long but please note that the official program starts at 7:30 with a Keynote Address by Deb Talan of The Weepies.
What about the kids? They LOVE the Souper Bowl! - You can bring your kiddos but this is a fancy party and some of the stories shared may not be suitable for all ages... Wanna chat about it? Give me a call and we can see if your kid would have fun.
What should I wear? - You only turn 40 once so we are dressing in our finest! Cocktail Casual to Bussiness Formal. Heck, wear a ballgown, glitter, or those velvet pants hiding in your closet! Tonight is a night to celebrate how far we have come!
