John talked about the mission of Roark-Sullivan which is to end chronic and Veteran’s homelessness. To this end, Roark-Sullivan Lifeway Center strives to provide safe, temporary shelter, skill development, and referrals to recovery services to support individuals experiencing homelessness to become self-sufficient.

Our upcoming fundraising event was discussed: the 14th Annual Night at the Races set for May 4, 2019 at Edgewood Country Club. A Derby-themed party complete with big screen to watch the 145th Running for the Roses, food, drinks, contests, auction items, music, dance, fun and fellowship.

Assisting in the event preparation is a group of 5 University of Charleston seniors. It is part of their Senior Project as students in the Integrated Communication Program.

We had Chad Tate and Gracie Roberts on the show discussing their role in promoting the event. Nice job Chad & Gracie.
