Greetings, Friends!

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2018; those born during the Millennium are now eligible to buy lottery tickets this year. 18 years ago, Backstreet Boys released the album “Millennium” and I think we still want it that way. 🙂

2017 was a very special year for Columbus Gives Back. (Watch our year in review here!) We swore in a new president- Amanda (who did you think I was talking about?) We officially become a 501(c)(3) organization. We also hit our 1,000th event since starting in 2009. Thank you for a fantastic year! CGB is looking forward to another fabulous year of community service and of course, the social twist. Whether you are excited for the staple events like LifeCare or Heinzerling or new events, we hope you consider donating your time and service to make 2018 the best year yet.

It’s been an honor for me to asked to welcome you to 2018. 2017 has been very kind to me personally- I got engaged and Michael and I adopted two adorable puppies, Rory and Jesse. From my family to yours, we wish you an incredible 2018. As always, thank you for giving back to Columbus!
