Summer in the City is a summertime happy hour event for young professionals where guests can enjoy an open bar, listen to great music, win drawing prizes, meet new people, and support CFR! Events have been held at venues such as the Frying Pan, Parlor, and the Hotel Chantelle.

The 7th Annual Summer in the City was held on July 20st at Green Fig and was a great success! See more info here!

Backpack Drive

To help CFR’s families kick off the school year right, the Junior Board provides brand new backpacks filled with school supplies to hundreds children, from pre-K through 12th grade. In addition to individual donations, the Junior Board partners with companies and law firms to assemble bags for distribution.

Holiday Gift Drive

Throughout the holiday season, the Junior Board collects funds and donations for an annual Holiday Gift Drive for CFR’s families. Children and families receive gift bags filled with toys, books, games, and more. This is also an opportunity for you or your company to volunteer at CFR and wrap gifts for our families!
