We are pleased to announce that despite the unforeseen circumstances which necessitated a change of venue, date and program for the 15th Annual Turn 2 Foundation Dinner, more than $730,000 was raised through sponsorship sales, silent auctions and donations!

Because of your generosity and unwavering support, we are able to further the Foundation's mission of promoting healthy lifestyles among today's youth in New York, West Michigan, and Tampa, Fla.

The feedback that we have received from our sponsors, guests and supporters has been extremely positive.
