Happy May! It’s hard to believe we’re already five months into 2017. Where has the time gone?

Here at CLI, we’re pretty excited to welcome this new month. For us, May is jam-packed with activities and events, and we’re super pumped to get started.

Here’s what we have coming up this month:

First off, we have our Alex & Ani fundraiser on Tuesday, May 9. From 5 to 7 p.m., we’ll be at Alex & Ani, in Montgomery Mall, to share what we do with the community, give away yummy treats, and raise money for CLI. While we’re there, a portion of ALL proceeds from Alex & Ani sales will benefit CLI. Now that’s pretty cool! You can show your support by coming out and just saying “hi.” Feel free to make whatever purchase you’re able to help out CLI.

Then, right after that, we’ve got our big spring bingo fundraiser! We’re really excited for this one, because our prizes are (if it’s possible) even better than last time. We’ve got tickets to the Frederick Keys, a $100 gift card to Colonial Jewelers, gift cards to The Orchard, The Muse, and more, and HUGE cash payouts (we’re talking $500-huge). We’re almost sold out, but we have room for just a few more, so hurry and buy your tickets today! We will be selling at the door, but we can’t guarantee how many we’ll have left day-of. Buy your tickets by emailing Elaina or calling her at 301-663-8811.

Meanwhile, we’re also gearing up for our first-ever #CommunityStrong Walk 2017 5K! Early registration gauranteeing event t-shirts closes May 25 (you can sign up after that but you won’t be gauranteed a shirt), so be sure to register ASAP!

May is super busy for us here at CLI, but we’re so excited for all of the fun events we have coming out. We hope you’ll be able to join us!
