Give Thanks, Give Back

The Horton's Kids “Give Thanks & Give Back” fundraiser was a HUGE success. They surpassed their goal of $90,000! A special thank you to those of you who responded to the appeal from emcee Luke Russert and dug deep to help them raise a record-breaking $20,000 at the event!

Sixty children can now join Horton’s Kids and begin receiving the supports that will be critical to their success. As alum Tyrec Grooms, who recently graduated from the University of Virginia, said in his speech at the event, “When I finally got off of the wait list, I hadn’t known then, but my life had changed. I was surprised and very delighted to find dozens of staff members and hundreds of volunteers dedicated to providing me and my peers with the resources, the time, and the money it took to help me to succeed.”
