of benefits to the donor.

While incredibly rewarding and entertaining for all
those who attend, these events do incur a significant

exchange for special or added recognition, donations can
be made to directly underwrite HDSF events, thus allowing
us to better spend our budget funds on our scholarship
recipients and our yearlong programs.
