We raised over $82,000 for kids, families, and young people in Lancaster County. We are grateful for every generous donor, sponsor, partner, and friend who helps kids in our community. 64 individual donors gave generous donations, ranging from $25 to $5,000, 28 sponsors gave sponsorships ranging from $500 to $2,500, and over 50 local businesses and individuals donated auction items for our silent and live auctions! 

A quick recap from our 2023 Feast of the Senses event: 

  • Big Boy Brass brought energy and fun, including a second line stroll through Excelsior before our program. 
  • Green Meadow Farm donated local Lancaster County farm fresh food! The event had fresh vegetables, cheeses, butter, gorgeous edible flowers, flour and cornmeal for the pizzas, polenta, farm-raised beef brisket, bacon and kielbasa, and fresh strawberries. 
  • Emcees Sir Dominique Jordan and Mister Motivation, aka Shaun Murphy helped us to energize the crowd and cultivated a welcoming atmosphere
  • HK Keller Auctioneers for leading us in an interactive activity with guests using our bid cards to illustrate youth mental health needs among middle school and high school students in Lancaster County. Tim and Andy Keller also led our live auction and appeal, raising funds for our mission! Thank you to every generous donor who supports us! 
  • Jackie Palm, an ambassador for Mental Health Access Assistance program, shared her story with everyone on stage. She was vulnerable while also conveying a powerful message of how instrumental this program has been in her mental wellness journey.

We are looking for local organizations and businesses in our community who are open to supporting youth mental wellness. We have a wide range of sponsorship opportunities, any amount helps us to continue our work in the community and host our annual fundraising event.
