Let the Sparks Fly in Nevada This Summer

by Donna Brown

Are you ready to walk for ACB? Do you want to be a part of the fastest growing fund-raising event for ACB, and one of the hottest social events at the ACB conference and convention?  Well, Let the Sparks Fly on the First of July! This is the theme for the 2017 ACB Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk. 
Once again, affiliates can create teams and designate up to 50% of the funds they raise to go back to the affiliate. Talk about a win-win fund-raiser! For assistance with creating teams, contact the Minneapolis office at (612) 332-3242. You aren’t able to attend the 2017 ACB national conference and convention? No worries. Virtual walkers are encouraged to register and seek donations.  

By the time you read this article, the 2017 ACB Walk website will be alive and well. You can link to the site from acb.org. A message with a link to the Walk website has already been posted on many ACB e-mail lists. Don’t delay, register and create your team today! The registration fee is only $25.
