Each year our community sets out to collectively raise $20,000 for The Flatwater Foundation! This year we are hosting a charity dinner to help raise these funds. The charity dinner will include dinner, drinks, live entertainment, a silent auction, and a raffle! You can purchase a single ticket or come together as a class and purchase a table!
The Flatwater Foundation is dedicated to providing those diagnosed with cancer, their families and loved ones access to mental health therapy and family support. This includes access to both traditional and non-traditional methods of psychological counseling.
“One cancer diagnosis can cause waves in all directions, affecting so many lives. We work to bring families coping with cancer back to calmer waters, so they can focus on navigating cancer, not the mental challenges of diagnosis.”
Live entertainment by Chance Peña, singer/songwriter from Tyler, Texas and contestant on The Voice
