The Annual Banquet is our opportunity to honor some amazing businesses and community members. Without them, and people like yourself, our Paulding County Community wouldn't be as amazing as what it is today. We hope that you can join us for the 2024 banquet!

Once again, the Dessert Dash was an outstanding success. In 2022 we were able to raise $1,220. This year, through the kindness and generosity of the attendees we were able to raise $2,017 that will be used for Quality of Life projects in Paulding County over the next year.
