Hosted by the Young Ambassadors Council (YAC), A WINNter Affair raises critical funds to support The Inn’s mission of providing hope and healing to the families we serve. Join us for a fun evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dancing to provide relief, support, and strength to families journeying into the unknown. Photos from the event can be found on our Flickr page.

Save the date for next year’s A WINNter Affair, which will take place on Saturday, February 24, 2018.
