Thank you to everyone who came to the YWCA’s “underground” rave last Friday! We had a wonderful time, and we credit each and every person who attended for the event’s success.

To consider the sustainability of this type of “underground” fundraising event, we need YOUR feedback! We truly hope you will take 2 minutes out of your busy schedules to complete a brief survey.

If you ATTENDED the event, we want to know what you thought of it! Take this survey today.

If you DID NOT ATTEND the event Friday, your opinions are just as important! Take this survey and give us your thoughts!

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. While this event brought us a step closer to our goal of 240 people signing up for the YWCA 24 for 24 Pledge, we still have a long way to go! To find out more about how you can make a small commitment while making a big difference in our community watch our 40-second video PSA.

Hope to see you next year!!!
