Thanks for Giving

Former Peace Development Director Roddy Wares came up with the idea for the first Thanks for Giving Benefit Dinner back in 2001—and she made it happen. For 20+ years, this annual event has been a major source of funds for Peace programs, whether hosted in-person or facilitated virtually with dinner pick-up and delivery.
