Expo 2018 was a success with 130 groups participating & over 2,000 attendees


Here's what we heard from those who attended the Expo in 2018:

From participant Lonna D: Wow, we walked out with 9 new patients to help. Excellent event and we were well fed by our host Paul Margolis.

From attendee Steve C: Hallo, I volunteer with the Elizabeth Taylor 50+ group at SFAF, and I just finished at Positive Resource Center taking their 6 month rather 6-week admin course. I thought the Expo was fantastic, found out information about Night Ministry, and volunteering with seniors. I just thought overall it was great. From the band,to the food, to many different groups giving information, all under one roof.

Just wonderful, thank you.

From media sponsor MXD Magazine: Thanks for hooking us up at the best expo I’ve been in ever!

From Expo volunteer Pablo N: What an outstanding event! An amazing array of compassionate, dedicated, and lovely individuals and their organizations. Love, love, love.
