Article1Crossroads Alumni Association raises $100 for the Barbara L. Dacri Fund  

Our Alumni were a big hit at this month's Friday Night Art Walk in Portland on July 3rd. Over the last few months the alumni have been meeting and making jewelry to sell at events throughout Portland. Led by Nichole C., Crossroads Alumni Outreach Officer, the group was able to raise $100 for the Barbara L. Dacri Fund

A huge thanks and congratulations to all! Be sure to visit their table at this year's Rally4Recovery  being held in Portland on Saturday September 20th!
