Have fun with your event!  Be creative! The possibilities are endless!  If you’re considering hosting a third-party fundraiser, we’d love to hear about it.  Just fill out the Hosting a Fundraiser Form and someone from CHASA will contact you. All events are important – both small and large.  FYI – smaller, more intimate events, often raise more funds than larger events because smaller events have fewer expenses. Plus, there’s less stress!

Thanks for helping us help our little stroke survivors.
