When a fundraiser is open to the general public, we make every effort possible
to alert members of the local community and others who might be interested in
attending. We are rarely able to offer free admission or to otherwise subsidize
those who wish to attend.
Because we are a small office it is difficult to accommodate all the wonderful,
enthusiastic people who want to give their time and energy to our cause. However,
we do recommend that those who want to volunteer consider seeking out local
coalitions that are focused on substance abuse. For more information please
see the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) website at www.CADCA.org.

the foundation nor Chris's family has the rights to many of the images and characters
that Chris created and is best remembered.
