Better Together Fundraiser

Better Together Fundraiser

Join us Wednesday, May 10, 2023 at 6:00pm

Affinity’s Better Together Benefit is our signature event of the year. Attendees Experience Affinity by meeting our students, mentors, and community partners to see how we are Better Together.

As adults during this time we are experiencing heightened levels of stress, anxiety, fear, and lack of support systems; now just imagine what it must feel like to be 10 years old. During uncertain times with a lack of routine, supports, and social contacts mentoring is more important than ever for young people. 

The business community has been important partners throughout this past year. We look forward to sharing how our corporate partners have positively impacted the lives of students and families in our community through innovation, passion, and generosity. In years to come, the partnership between the education, social service, and business sectors will be even more important to support the next generation of leaders.
