Just over a month ago, I’m From Driftwood became an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. To celebrate, we had a Rooftop BBQ Fundraiser this past Saturday. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking, but it was an amazing time and was very successful. It set the bar quite high for future events and I can’t wait until the next one. A big thank you to everyone who helped make it happen. I know better than to start listing names but you know who you are. If you didn’t have a chance to attend the fundraiser, you can still help IFD have a strong start as a non-profit by making a tax-deductible donation. Enjoy the slideshow.
