CCC's Valentine's Benefit

Thanks for attending our event!

Thank you for making CCC's Valentine's Benefit a Success!

Thank you to everyone who joined CCC at Twelve Lounge last week for our first-ever Valentine's Benefit! You can see our report at
In spite of the historic snow that delayed our Valentine's Benefit to early March, over a hundred new and old friends were able to share a meaningful evening with us. 

With a festive silent auction, an inspiring new CCC video, and two fantastic student performances, we introduced our work - and the difference we're making in the community - to people from across the city.
