SOS Hope-A-Palooza Celebrates as Legacy of Hope

Members of the community joined SOS in celebrating retiring executive director Connie Cahoone at SOS 2024 Hope-A-Palooza on March 29, 2024 at the Emporia Granada Theatre. Attendees enjoyed dinner and drinks, followed by recognition of SOS volunteers and Connie Cahoone, and a live auction. 100% all money raised by ticket sales and the live auction goes to fund SOS programs thanks to support from generous sponsors.
