Friends of the FUNd

From yoga, and axe throwing, to an online kombucha brewing class, the Friends of the FUNd (FOTF) held so many great events this past year! We are so grateful to all who hosted and sponsored events, became FOTF Members, and purchased a ticket to attend one of these smaller gatherings in support of the School. 
The first year of our Friends of the FUNd membership program was a success and we are planning for the next round of events in 2020-2021. Pending the trajectory of the pandemic and community interest we will continue to make plans to reach our goal of hosting a wide variety of exciting, small-group virtual and in-person events fostering relationships and keeping the FUN in fundraising. We would love to have your ideas about what would entice you and your family to join the Friends of the FUNd this year, or to hear about an event that you would like to host.
When you become a Friend of the FUNd member, you receive a complimentary and transferable ticket to every FOTF event for a calendar year. Plus, members sometimes receive coupon codes and discounts to use to purchase a ticket for a family member or to pass along to friends. Support Headwaters by becoming a member today at this link.

Upcoming Events

Throughout the year, we gather socially to have fun while we support Headwaters.

Even when we’re socially distanced, food can help bring us together. We have cooked up several different ways to engage with each other, and even hone our culinary skills with some food related series listed below.
