TallyTies Gala Set for August 22, 2013
Please consider telling all your friends and relatives about the big TallyTIES Gala coming August 22, 2013, at the Woman's Club in Los Robles. TallyTIES is throwing this fundraiser just for NAMI Tallahassee, and we are so excited about helping to round up sponsors and selling tickets and attending. Call Nancy at 850.509.3475, if you think you can help or you just need more information.
The Leadership of TallyTies formally chose NAMI Tallahassee as its 2013 partner. TallyTIES is a not-for-profit organization comprised of professionals from various industries with a passion for giving back to the Tallahassee community. The year long partnership is spent interacting with the service partners and volunteering time. Rather than just stroking a check, members learn about the organization from its leaders and meet the people the organization benefits face to face.
