“My first exposure to Elachee was attending Flights of Fancy with my husband Will. At the time, I was new to the area but amazed at the group of people that were committed and dedicated to the organization,” shares Cathy Cobb, Chair of the 2018 Flights of Fancy Volunteer Steering Committee. “A party full of positive energy, I met many people and left with a car load of unique auction items. We have a great volunteer committee working on the event. It will be another wonderful evening to show support for Elachee and help move its mission forward.”
