“Take The Night Off For Fiji”

2016-invite-package2

Instead of purchasing tickets, dressing up, hiring a babysitter
and driving to attend our annual fundraiser, take the night off!
We invite you to grab a bag of popcorn, put your feet up and watch your favorite
Netflix show. Then, donate the money you would have spent to Loloma! 100% of the tax-deductible donations received will directly benefit achieving our 2015 goals.
