The SoHi After Grad Committee for the Graduating Class of 2012 would like to express our deepest gratitude for the outpouring support for this year's Senior students. At this time of year there are many requests for donations by several agencies, and the tight economy makes it difficult for businesses to say "Yes" to organizations. However, the overwhelming support from our community was outstanding. The support allowed the committee to provide the graduates a place to celebrate their accomplishments in a fun atmosphere.
Thank you to 4 D Interior for the donation of the Alaskan themed rug for our raffle and to Bridges for helping with the raffle. Their assistance generated a good portion of the funds raised for the event.
