We couldn’t have done it without the help and unwavering support of our SoHi office ladies! Special thanks to Kay Gardner for volunteering at the event until the wee hours of the morning and handling all of the paperwork! And none of this would be possible without the helping hands of many parent volunteers who begin planning and preparing in October to ensure that all the graduates have a fun and safe place to celebrate this special milestone in their lives!

Our young people are our most precious resource and we are so very grateful to all those involved in helping us host a fun and safe event for our SoHi Class of 2016 Graduates. We had more than a hundred graduates attend and they had a great time together winning fabulous prizes and making wonderful memories. It was a special time for them to bond one last time as a class and really enjoy all the games and activities as a group. Many thanks to all those who had a hand in making this a successful event and our apologies to anyone who may have inadvertently been left out of the list above. Know that each and every contribution to this event was gratefully received!

Thank you so much!
