Fundraisers for The Crest


Fun for the Whole Family

Music and dinner events at Willow-Witt Ranch are now fundraisers for The Crest. This is a great opportunity to have fun, dance, eat a great meal and connect with friends and family; all the proceeds go to The Crest to help fund the organization and the programs that we have planned. So come to one or more events to support a good cause and have a fun family-friendly time. We look forward to seeing you and your family this summer. Please sign up for each event; this will help us plan for food, staff, and volunteers. We can’t wait to see you.
