2018 Mateo Awards Brunch

A huge thank you to Mateo, our glorious sponsors and all who donated!

End of summer fundraiser

On behalf of southern makers, our board of directors and staff, we thank you for your tremendous support during our end of summer fundraiser. Our challenge was to raise $10,000 and we got very close. The small donation envelopes (as we call them) keep surprising us in the mail. The room was packed. The food was great. Mimosas were flowing. And many new relationships were made. See the photos here.
