Activities to be funded by this event: Day rate sponsorships—The goal is to be able to offer days to individuals who do not have the financial means to attend our program. Even one day per week would make a huge difference in the quality of life for our participants and their caregivers. Bath sponsorships: The goal is to be able to cover the cost of a bath or shower to promote healthy hygiene for those who have no one else to help them or for those who want extra bathing. This is especially appreciated by partners who cannot physically give their loved one a bath or shower.
