Attendees enjoyed music performed by Roo Jaxson and The Street Jaxson Band, a live auction, games, as well as a contest for “Best Country Hat” we will not soon forget. Proceeds from the event will be used to fund various NorthPointe programs such as community employment, micro-enterprise, and residential services, as well SOARR Behavioral Health Services.
