We’re On The Way Fundraiser 2017!

This year's We're On The Way Fundraiser was a complete success! Thank you to everyone who made this wonderful night happen. Heather and her fundraising committee sure know how to throw a great party!

Our 5th annual event was held on Saturday, November 4th, 2017 and we raised OVER 

$40,000.00!

All funds raised from this event will be used to purchase supplies and equipment to provide unique program experiences for the children and youth of varied abilities at Nova's Ark!

We could not have done it without the great generosity of our guests and donors! This sold out night involved a delicious dinner, silent auction, dancing and a draw for some unbelievable prizes! Click below to see the list of our incredible donors who helped support Nova's Ark!

7th Annual Friendship Walk…What a great day!

We had our fingers (and toes!) crossed for a sunny day with no rain for our 7th Annual Friendship Walk, and  Saturday, June 17 arrived with just that!  Along with the good weather, we had an amazing turnout of wonderful people all gathered to enjoy a day of family fun in support of Nova's Ark. To each and every one of you who gave pledges and walked with us – you have truly made a difference!  

For the 2nd year in a row, our walker with the most pledges was Trey B. who won a 3 hr Saturday visit at Nova's Ark for 10 people.  Congratulations Trey!
