Youth First Passport to Adventure

Youth First Passport to Adventure

At Youth First’s annual Passport to Adventure auction on May 13, everything from guitars signed by Rascal Flatts and Darius Rucker (that’s Hootie from Hootie & the Blowfish) to tickets for Oprah’s final season was offered for bid. Admission to this event always is free, and guests purchased drinks and enjoyed complimentary hors d’oeuvres. Co-chairs Tom Austerman and Krista Greenfield welcomed 300 eager bidders to St. Mary’s Manor Auditorium, and attendees raised nearly $100,000 for the organization’s evidence-based programs that prevent substance abuse and promote healthy behaviors.
