YOU Helped Make a Difference!
October we had dozens of events that helped raise money, bring awareness, and
ultimately save lives. Your participation in our community fundraisers made a
difference and we couldn't do any of this without you! We are so thankful that
every year our community comes together to support our mission, to save lives
and meet the most critical needs of our 22 city and county service area. We are still $25,000 from our Race for the Cure goal, there is still time to donate. Race for the Cure donations end November 17th, to make a donation to a team or a Race participant click here.

a fun dice game, an excuse to spend time with friends, a fundraiser or
all three. We think it is all three. Join the Tidewater office staff and
friends in a night of Bunco. Never played Bunco, no problem, it is a
social dice game involving 100% luck and no skill, there are no
decisions to be made, just scoring and a simple set of rules. The object
of the game is to accumulate points and to roll certain combinations.
The winners get prizes!

Time: 6:30pm - 8:30pm
