3rd Annual Jazzin Up January Fundraiser

On Thursday, January 26 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum Convention Hall, Crosswinds entertained 600 guests at their 3rd Annual Jazzin Up January Fundraiser. Food stations, a silent auction, beautiful jazz music by Dan Heath and the Paradise Band along with an inspirational message by CEO Mark Terrell kept the crowd entertained all evening.

The Lutheran Foundationwas generous and offered to match up to the first $100,000 that was raised and we are happy to announce that we surpassed that goal. With this money, Crosswinds will be able to continue to offer affordable counseling services in northeast Indiana. At the event the silent auction was a huge hit, especially the hand crafted wood furniture that was made by our young men at Lifeline’s Pierceton Woods Academy which is a part of our sister company.

Crosswinds exists so that: Individual succeed. Families thrive. Communities prosper.  Crosswinds helps individuals and families discover solutions that will allow them to reclaim control, rebuild relationships and restore hope.
