-A Message of Thanks-

This year The Pride Gala, "A Secret Garden," was forced to take a different "path" due to the arrival of COVID-19.  Switching gears in the midst of any project presents many challenges, but the IC Family was up for the task!  Thanks to your dedication during the planning and execution of our new "virtual" event, I believe that we will remain IC STRONG and the Gala will enjoy its usual success!


This year "raise your paddles" high and frequently in support of the IC education that changes lives!


Thank you in advance for your participation and generosity.
